In a letter sent to NBA players on Monday night and obtained by Yahoo! Sports, Players Association president Derek Fisher defended himself against charges he’s undermined the union by trying to cut a secret side deal with the commissioner’s office.
“…Let me say on the record to each of you, my loyalty has and always will be with the players,” Fisher wrote in an email to players. “Anyone that questions that or doubts that does not know me, my history, and what I stand for. And quite frankly, how dare anyone call that into question. The Players Association is united and any reports to the contrary are false. There have been no side agreements, no side negotiations or anything close. We are united in serving you and presenting the best options and getting everyone back to work.”
