PISTON PLAYER REP SOUNDS OMINOUS WARNING ON DECERTIFICATION
Published April 9, 1998
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).
