Clippers G Chris Paul Elected NBPA President In Surprise Move
Clippers G Chris Paul in a surprise move was elected NBPA President yesterday at the union's annual meeting in Las Vegas. Paul defeated free agent G Roger Mason Jr. in what players said was "a close vote." Paul is the first superstar player to serve as President since Patrick Ewing left the position in '01. Outgoing NBPA First VP Jerry Stackhouse said, "We shocked the world, right? I think it's great. We come out of here with a lot of momentum and we got a guy who is one of the faces of the league."
