    I didn't see a thread - last week fisher wanted to have independent audits of the unions books. Fisher immediately rallied support to attempt to replace Fisher as president of the players association.

    Today this news is reported by Bloomberg.

    David Stern must be happy about the union attacking each other, but disappointed that it didn't happen six months ago.

    Anytime someone INSIDE an organization raises questions and those in charge try to silence him (especially by trying to get rid of him), there's ALWAYS something going wrong in the organization. Looks like there's both smoke AND fire here.

    The argument could also be made that Hunter has been more successful in gaining ground for NBA players to be successful than Gene Upshaw, but still Hunter looks to have made some serious mistakes in the past couple of years. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

    How can roger mason jr be on the exec commitee, he has some of the lowest bball IQ in the league. Whats next? javale mcgee completes his doctorate?

    Also, props to chris paul for actually bothering to be involved, most of the top stars dont seem to care.
