Hunter ousted as director of NBA players union

Sun., Feb. 17, 2013

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. The change 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.” – Associated Press
