Regardless of their scores, #TeamHoopsAndHeels is staying positive and working hard in rehearsals in hopes of getting Burgess her first mirrorball trophy. If the two place first this season, this would also be the first time an NBA star has ever won the dance competition show.
"It's been fun. I've just been trying to listen to my coach here," Fisher, who's played basketball professionally for the Los Angeles Lakers, Golden State Warriors, Oklahoma City Thunder, Utah Jazz and Dallas Mavericks, explained. "I'm usually a leader and mentor on the teams that I've played on, and then I coached [for the New York Knicks] for, like, two seconds. So, it's different for me because you literally have to just trust what someone else is telling you -- what I need to do to be successful."
"That's part of the journey for me, being on this show and learning to let go of things I can't control," he continued. "I cannot control myself as a ballroom dancer. I have to listen to her, completely."
