The gullible NBA players finally got some backbone and put Bill Goat Hunter out of his (their) misery.
Billy Goat has been the ultimate example of nepotism and under the counter deals, bordering on criminality. Getting overpaid and again overpaid for “vacation time”, he sucked up every available penny from the union coffers.
The millionaires paying his salary are young, gullible and lack interest in their own union. With no over site, Billy Goat thoroughly abused the system. He made Carlo Pietro Giovanni Guglielmo Tebaldo Ponzi (“Charles” Ponzi of the infamous “Ponzi Scheme”) look like a second rate huckster.
The big question is “what took so long?”
In true Billy Goat fashion, he will file a suit to recover his illegal contract, plus damages.
The NBPA needs to find a leader, not to confront the NBA, but to work with the NBA, to grow the revenues and make more money for the players and owners. The millionaires and billionaires need to work together for more productive and competitive league. The new CBA appears to be working toward making more teams competitive and stopping teams from buying championships.
“Derek Fisher will continue to serve as the NBPA’s president. Matt Bonner was elected vice president and James Jones was elected secretary/treasurer. Stackhouse, Roger Mason, Jr., Chris Paul, Andre Iguodala, Stephen Curry and Willie Green will round out the NBPA’s executive committee.”
