Don’t hang up (or burn) your #2 Lakers jerseys just yet. Derek Fisher tells TMZ that he’s gonna stay with the Los Angeles Lakers! We reported yesterday that Fisher had been talking with Miami Heat officials about the possibility of him joining Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Chris Bosh and the rest of the Heat next season. Now Fisher has finally made up his mind about who he’s playing for next year. Check out what he told TMZ below:

“I have decided to continue with Kobe, continue with our teammates and the fans of Los Angeles. While this may not be the most lucrative contract I’ve been offered this off season, it is the most valuable. At the end of the day, there’s one person I could not turn away from. Kobe Bryant asked me to stay but supported whatever decision I made. He and I have played together for 11 seasons, came into the league together as kids, and has been loyal to me even when others had doubts.”

Do you think this was a good decision?
