NBA Union Executive Director Dismissed

The last couple of days, I have been reading about the possible ousting of NBA Union Executive Director.  Yesterday (Saturday), the union representatives voted unanimously to dismiss him.

After a 469-page audit report conducted a law firm, the report charged former executive director Billy Hunter with nepotism, poor management, and abuse of union resources.  The audit did not find any criminal wrongdoing.  Nevertheless, the report concluded that Hunter had put his own interests ahead of the union’s and recommended that the players reconsider his employment.

The move to dismiss the former NBA union Executive Director Billy Hunter was announced by the union president Derek Fisher.  Hunter’s business practices had drawn the scrutiny of three government agencies.

In his blog, Hunter announced, “During the days and weeks ahead, my legal team and I will begin carefully reviewing the actions taken and statements made against me in the meeting room in my absence.”
