NBA Agents Discussing Fehr For NBAPA Union Leader

As NBA players prepare to make a decision on union chief Billy Hunter's future at All-Star weekend in Houston in less than two weeks, several influential agents already are privately discussing a possible successor: longtime sports union leader Don Fehr.

Fehr, currently the executive director of the NHL Players Association, is the early preferred pick among multiple agents with enough clout to sway a significant portion of union membership, CBSSports.com has learned.

Take him, though curious who would succeed in NHLPA

That's some retirement he's got going.

They're 10 years away from CBA talks. So not a whole lot of reason to try to get him right now.

Get him as far away from hockey as possible and I'm happy.

Are we still holding to the fantasy that the owner initiated lockout was Fehr's fault somehow?

He certainly played a part. Let's not try to start a lockout argument.

I'd like to see an intelligent argument for that position for once actually.

Maybe for us, but he's proven to be pretty good for the players.

A bold claim, what makes you say that?

Yup. He doesn't work for the fans or their approval, he works for the players. And IMO he has done pretty well for the players in the leagues he's been involved in.

These people insulting Fehr and the players are incapable of empathy. No point arguing that.

They can have him, but they also have to take Bettman back as well.

I hope the NBA hires Bettman just so that the PA can respond by hiring Fehr. Just imagine the rage on Bettman's mind if he has to deal with him again
