Deshawn Stevenson Rips Billy Hunter

With the NBA Lockout continuing with no end in sight it is not surprising that some players are not pleased. Many feel that they should be on the basketball court playing games as opposed to being in a Minnesota courtroom filing anti-trust legislation. The Mavericks' DeShawn Stevenson is one such player, and he let Players representative Billy Hunter know about on Tuesday afternoon:

"I felt like we should have decertified in July," Stevenson said. "I feel like Billy Hunter is doing a horrible job because basically now [the owners] know our hand. The media knows our hand. The owners know our hand."

Stevenson also stated that he does not believe there will be a season this year, as he believes there is too much "bad blood" between the owners and the players.

Currently, there are no new bargaining sessions scheduled between the two sides, and all games through December 15th have officially been cancelled.
