Derek Fisher and Shannon Brown compete in NBC's Minute to Win It

Should the upcoming collective bargaining agreement break down this summer and lead to an NBA lockout, Lakers guards Derek Fisher and Shannon Brown just demonstrated what players can do to make up for some of the lost income.

Show up on NBC's Minute to Win It, compete in various competitions and walk up away with $75,000. OK, some that clearly is a big drop from their million-dollar salary and the money ultimately went to Fisher's and Brown's respective charity foundations, but it's just a thought.
