Quote of the day: Billy Hunter is frustrated, metaphorically armed


“If someone wants to point a gun at my head, I’ll point it right back at him.” 

-NBAPA chief Billy Hunter at the NBPA press conference, regarding David Stern’s comments about the possible cancellation of games until Christmas if a new CBA deal doesn’t get worked out soon. Reading between the lines just a little bit here, I’d say that negotiations are going less than swimmingly right now — it might be time to re-aquatint yourself with your local hockey team pretty soon.
