NEW YORK (AP) - After 17 years fighting for NBA players, Billy Hunter might be down to his last, most difficult battle.
This one is for his own job.
A lengthy report critical of seemingly every aspect of Hunter's leadership has given players plenty of reason to fire him as executive director of the players' association, and some will go to Houston for All-Star weekend with that intention.
Oklahoma City center Kendrick Perkins says he feels ``like it's time for a new leader.''
Some other notable players agree. Others, realizing that Hunter hasn't been found to have done anything illegal, may not support his removal from the position he's held since 1996.
Players will meet Saturday and Hunter's future is expected to be the focus, unless there's been a resolution.
