ONE BIG MESS: TRUE HOOP's Henry Abbott asked, "If this is an effort to oust Hunter, is that on behalf of somebody?" No one "seems to know anything solid about that, other than to speculate that Hunter ... will be tough to dislodge." Sources said that Hunter "will not step down anytime soon, even if holding on to his job requires a massive battle" (ESPN.com, 4/25). Meanwhile, Clippers G Chris Paul yesterday briefly addressed the power struggle between Hunter and Fisher, saying, "I don't have any perspective on it right now. I'm so locked in on the playoffs. ... I haven't been able to talk to anybody or know really too much what's going on." CBSSPORTS.com's Ken Berger noted as the "most prominent member of the committee that voted 8-0 last week that Fisher should resign as president amid his efforts to have an independent review of the union's business practices, Paul's voice matters." Fellow committee members have "mentioned Paul as a possible replacement for Fisher," and Paul said, "I'm honored, but I don't even think about that." As to what he would "like to see happen next in the battle for control of the NBPA," Paul said, "Not a clue. I just feel like it's messy right now" (CBSSPORTS.com, 4/25).
