Sources: Billy Hunter, Derek Fisher fight
The fight between NBA players union executive director Billy Hunter and president Derek Fisher is escalating, with Hunter hiring a public relations firm and calling for a player representative conference call as early as Friday in an attempt to oust Fisher, sources said Friday morning.
EXCERPT
The two union leaders have been at odds since a rumor surfaced during the lockout that Fisher had met privately with commissioner David Stern and deputy commissioner Adam Silver to cut a deal, a rumor that never was substantiated and that some in Fisher's circle now suspect came from Hunter to undermine Fisher's authority, sources said.


The board's attempt to oust Fisher was first reported by Yahoo! Sports.
