There's no reason for me to pretend this Derek Fisher-Billy Hunter feud isn't personal for me.
It became personal the moment Fisher publicly threatened to sue me because I reported a major rift between Hunter and Fisher -- the former executive director and current president of the NBA players union, respectively -- during the 2011 NBA lockout.
