Fisher Gives Jazz Boost in Overtime Win


I don't how many of you watch NBA basketball, but Joey and I are addicted, and I had to add this picture of Derek Fisher in here for all to see. Derek Fisher plays for the Utah Jazz and he had missed their first playoff game because he said one of his 4 children were ill. Come to find out his 10 month old daughter, Tatum, has retinoblastoma, a form of eye cancer that required a three-hour combination of surgery and chemotherapy at a New York Hospital. Fisher missed most of the first three quarters, then ran straight from the tunnel onto the court late in the third period to a standing ovation and a few high-fives and hugs from teammates, as well as Golden State's Baron Davis. It was so awesome, and I was even a little emotional myself. The teams ended up going into overtime and Fisher scored a winning 3 point shot to secure the win for Jazz.

I know...it was awesome and gave God all the glory and praise! And I even like the part where he said he asked his wife if he could come and play! LOL Hoping to hear something about Jolea very soon, I prayed so much for everyone last night. Hugs, Kim
