Whomever it may be running the Oklahoma City Thunder Stats & Info Twitter account, one thing is extremely clear: They don't like Derek Fisher.

The Thunder signed Fisher on February 25, and the OKC S&I guys started with a subtle, albeit obvious jab.

Fisher wore 37 last year for OKC because of his age. Wondering if he will wear 38 this time around.

After his first game with the Thunder, it became evident that he was going to be fighting to take minutes away from Reggie Jackson, the newest love affair among most Thunder fans.

Per 36 Min: Fisher last year: 9.4 points, 2.6 rebounds, 2.2 assists - Jackson this year: 12.2 points, 6.3 rebounds, 4.8 assists.

On the night Derek Fisher joined the Thunder, Reggie Jackson set a new career-high of 14 points.

Fisher went on to score in double figures just three times in the next 14 games, as his minutes stayed rather steady. The OKC S&I guys weren't particularly happy about that.

From Elias: Derek Fisher shouldn't be playing 10-15 minutes a game.

The NBA record for the most games in a season with at least 4 FG attempts and 0 points is 7. In only 13 games for OKC, Fisher already has 4.

The coup de grâce came after a particularly horrible stretch from Fisher, when Thunder fans watched as their own were hitting shots at a more efficient rate than Fisher.

Derek Fisher in his last 5 games is 0-14 from the field. Thunder fans in the last 6 homes games are 2-6 from half court.

— Thunder Stats & Info (@ThunderStats) March 25, 2013

In all, Fisher is averaging just 3.3 points, a rebound and an assist per game, all while shooting 33 percent from the field and 30 percent from the three-point line.

In case it's not obvious after reading all of that, Thunder fans don't much care for the acquisition of Fisher.
