In a bold move, the NBAPA anoints Ramon Sessions as the new president of the Players Association because basketball reasons.

That's cold. Billy Hunter is a corporate assassin.

Are we really gonna pretend that Billy Hunters performance during the lockout wasn't absolutely a failure?

He's quicker and more athletic. Now we know why they had no interest in nominating Arenas.

Agreed. Apparently, Fisher wanted an audit to find out about how Hunter was managing the Union's money.

That's when Billy went "Hunter" and essentially had him kicked out.

What's Hunter got to hide? And what does he have on those players that changed their minds?
Hunter did a shit job on the lockout negotiations, and now he's just trying to save his ass. I'll bet he's saying to himself "c'mon Fish, you have a job! I need this, even though I'm incompetent."

Won't they be doing an audit though ? It was written in the article Jeff posted.

Billy Hunter is a POS. He cost the players billions of dollars because of his failed leadership.

She still has to go through the interim NBAPA president Steve Blake.

I don't see Fish playing after this season anyway. Wouldn't another active player have to take over?
