PISTON PLAYER REP SOUNDS OMINOUS WARNING ON DECERTIFICATION

          Pistons Player Rep Jerome Williams said that during the
     NBA's last lockout in '95, the players "didn't have a chance
     to set up the decertification process," according to Chris
     McCosky of the DETROIT NEWS.  But McCosky writes that NBPA
     Exec Dir Billy Hunter "already has met with 17 teams and 15
     of them have agreed to decertify if the owners lock them out
     this summer."  The Pistons have yet to vote.  Williams: "If
     they lock us out, we will already have a lawsuit in place to
     decertify.  Then everybody will be a free agent.  No union,
     no lockout, no draft, no salary cap" (DETROIT NEWS, 4/9).
