Jordan’s Agent Blamed

Kenny Gattison, who had been involved in the NBA labor dispute as the Charlotte Hornets’ player representative, laid the blame for the lockout that went into effect today at the feet of agent David Falk.

“I think this whole thing has been manufactured by David Falk,” Gattison told the Charlotte Observer. “He gets kinda bent out of shape because he expected our union to keep him abreast of what’s going on. We didn’t feel it was our responsibility to have every agent in the country know what was going on.”

Hornets center Alonzo Mourning, Chicago’s Michael Jordan and New York’s Patrick Ewing, all clients of Falk’s, are among the players who have begun decertification procedures against the NBA players union.
