More recently, though, Billy gets the Players Union Reps to ask Union President D-Fish (aka Kevin Johnson Junior) to step down after Fisher requested an audit of the NBPA. Everyone knows that D-Fish will either be apart of Obama's cabinet in the 2nd term or become a Mayor of some midsize US City within 5 years of his retirement. Derek Fisher is a golden god. He may be a flopper on the hardwood but as the Union President he's not whining to any official. Fisher decided not to listen to the Player Reps and still holds his Presidential role.
Just today, Wojo and Rand Getlin (Yahoo! Sports' in-house lawyer writer) drop THIS BOMB complete with cool little US Today-esq pie charts and everything. C'mon now, Billy. Giving $7-$9 million in Players Association funds to a failed investment bank where Billy Hunter's son just happens to sit on the board? Only using legal council where Billy Hunter's daughter happens to work? That's some sketchy ass'd nepotastic bullcrap right there. Who does he think he is, a partner at JP Morgan or something?
Wojo and Getlin were obviously holding on to this report until the perfect moment. Hunter probably couldn't pay off the bribe fast enough to squash this story. Either that or Fisher won the bidding war and was able to make $ure that this story was released at a perfect time.
Reality shows can't hold a match to real life sports drama!

When you are outright tanking because you have a top 7 protected pick you hire this guy, pay him $143,416 and play him 28 minutes. Then you get an accidental comeback win over the Rubio-less/Love-less Minnesota Timberwolves. If there is any way the Warriors can somehow have Charles Jenkins come down with a hammy injury for these last two games then the Warriors should be able to keep their pick.
And with the 7th pick the Warriors will select Perry Jones of Baylor. Wait, I thought that this was supposed to be a good draft? Eventually management will treat him like Anthony Randolph or Brandon Wright and ship him out for pennies on the Euro. But nobody will care because Perry Jones doesn't understand how to play basketball. At least Mikki Moore will no longer be on the team.
