Customizing Story Points Field

I would like to customize the default Story Points field so that it is a drop down menu following the Fibonacci sequence.

Is there any way to do this? 

It seems the locked Story Points field is the only one that feeds into reporting and displays on the issue cards when viewing all issues in aggregate (for example, in the backlog or in the active sprint). Given that, it seems that creating an additional custom field for Story Points does not have the same impact as using the default locked version. However, I cannot determine any way to make this change on the default story points field.

Correct, the story point field is locked. Your only option would be to create your own custom field, just note that Estimations on a board can only be based on a number field, not a select field.

I've solved this with Scriptrunner - you have your "estimate entry" field as a drop-down, then have a scripted field that reads the value from the field and presents it as a number for the estimation statistic.
