Billy Hunter out as head of Players' Union, Mason Jr. named a VP

quote:

HOUSTON -- Billy Hunter was ousted unanimously as executive director of the union by NBA players, who said Saturday they will "no longer be divided, misled, misinformed."

"This is our union and we have taken it back," players' association president Derek Fisher said.


Hunter
Fisher said it was a day of change for the union, one which had seemed inevitable since a review of the union last month was critical of Hunter's leadership and urged players to consider whether they wanted to keep him.

They didn't.

"We want to make it clear that we are here to serve only the best interests of the players," Fisher said. "No threats, no lies, no distractions will stop us from serving our memberships."

In brief remarks, Fisher said a new executive committee was elected, and he will remain as president. The Spurs' Matt Bonner is vice president, Miami's James Jones is secretary-treasurer and the Nets' Jerry Stackhouse is first vice president. The Clippers' Chris Paul and Willie Green, Golden State's Stephen Curry, Denver's Andre Iguodala, and the Hornets' Roger Mason, Jr. are vice presidents.


Congrats to RMJ

Willie Green and CP3 are on the list two. Willie Green doesn't always pass the ball but when he does he passes it to the rim.

That joke wasn't funny 3 years ago and still isn't funny today.

The most appropriate comment I can come up with is "GTFO Hunter you cocksucker!".

Shouldn't he be the Sergeant at Arms? Either way I would definitely want Stack in my cabinet, just in case we needed to kick a little ass.
