06:24 PM ET 01.29 | NBA agent Arn Tellem wants NBA Player's Association executive Billy Hunter gone. In a letter sent out to his clients and obtained by the New York Times, Tellem asked for players to oust Hunter, who has come under fire following the release of an audit on his performance. In that report issued by an independent group, Hunter was found to be using the union for personal gain, but he was not said to have broken any laws. Tellem, from the Wasserman Media Group and one of the most influential player agents in the NBA, could have a impactful pull in Hunter's future. Tellem represents 50 NBA players, a number of whom are player representatives for their respective teams. One of Tellem's clients, Brooklyn Nets guard Deron Williams, was the first notable player to call for Hunter's removal from his current post.

A crook, is a crook is a crook. Put him in jail & you won't have to worry about him stepping down. Where are the "checks & balances" in life. When they are not in place we have nothing to cry about.
