Derek Fisher was spent after the Lakers' Game 3 victory over the Celtics in the NBA Finals, both physically and emotionally. In his post-game interview immediately after the buzzer sounded, Fisher was initially at a loss for words.

"I'm sorry I'm getting emotional," said the Los Angeles point guard. "Nothing means more to me than helping my team win."

The 13-year veteran certainly helped his team, scoring 11 of his 16 points in the fourth quarter and shooting 50 percent from the field. Scroll down to watch the video.
