Billy Hunter Unlikely To Continue as Head of NBA Players' Association

Billy Hunter Unlikely To Continue as Head of NBA Players' Association

After months of NBA players sitting at home out of work, it looks like their union representative Billy Hunter might be the only jobless one when everything is settled. 

According to SI.com, numerous players have expressed stern disapproval of how Hunter, who has been the executive director of the National Basketball Players' Association since 1996, has handled negotiations and dissolution of the union during the lockout. One even said that the players know they have settled on a terrible deal, despite Hunter's failed persuasion that it is fair to both sides. 

Players were also unhappy that Hunter kept his salary, reportedly around $2 million, during the lockout, unlike NFL head DeMaurice Smith who reduced his salary to $1.
