DOOLING NOT INTERESTED IN FISHER'S ROLE: Celtics G and NBPA Exec Committee VP Keyon Dooling said that he has "no interest" in succeeding Thunder G Derek Fisher as NBPA President. He added that the union "would have to seek a veteran leader to stabilize the organization, foster a better relationship with [NBPA Exec Dir Billy] Hunter, and erase the perception that Hunter is bleeding the organization." In Boston, Gary Washburn noted Clippers G Chris Paul could be a "top candidate" to replace Fisher. Paul is "established enough on the court to hold the respect of his playing brethren and mature enough to handle the responsibility for several years until the next collective bargaining agreement expires" (BOSTON GLOBE, 5/6).
