When you take a look at Derek Fisher's coaching staff, it's a strong blend of the two teams he had the strongest ties to; the Los Angeles Lakers and the Oklahoma City Thunder.
One of the more interesting hires; Brian Keefe, who came from Oklahoma City, apparently has extremely strong ties and a close relationship to current NBA MVP Kevin Durant, which Marc Berman of the New York Post found out from a league source.
“He’s Durant’s guy,’’ the league source said. During last season, Durant noted Keefe had put him in his place regarding body language and attitude.
