08:06 AM ET 03.04 | As a player and a mayor, Kevin Johnson doesn't seem to shy from big moments, something that no doubt has caught the collective attention of NBA players. [Throughout the lockout], the players were always in capitulation mode, always one move behind. Johnson's leadership on Sacramento has shown the league and the owners a different kind of adversary. In fact, Johnson's name has come up in the tight circle of those contemplating who would be a viable replacement for [Billy Hunter] as the next head of the NBPA, two league sources with knowledge of the discussions told CBSSports.com. People active in the union have been inquiring privately as to whether Johnson would be interested in being considered once his second mayoral term is up.
