Derek Fisher open to discussing lineup change and other practice notes

By all means ... discuss it!

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Sunday's matchup with the Los Angeles Lakers is only significant inasmuch as it gives the Knicks a great opportunity to halt their three-game losing streak against a terrible team. They won't face many clubs as bad as the Lakers this month -- or ever -- so it is imperative they take this game seriously. With that (hopefully) in mind, Derek Fisher held practice Saturday morning.

Let's start with the questions on everyone's minds: no, Arron Afflalo didn't practice and yes, Jose Calderon and Sasha Vujacic scrimmaged with the starters.

No surprises there. Saturday's big development was that Fisher finally expressed a willingness to even discuss changing his starting lineup.

I can see that discussion going well...

Fisher: "Should we take Calderon or Vujacic out of the lineup?"

Kurt Rambis: "LOL, nah."

The rest of the post-practice press conference was focused mainly on Kobe Bryant. Sure, it's dumb and irrelevant, but it did produce this charming nugget:

Bryant ... Vujacic ... in the year of our Lord 2015! Get hyped, y'all!
