[Guide] August 22, . Starting today, Chris Paul has another identity besides the Clippers star, that is, an NBA player
Union president, who will succeed Derek Fisher in charge of the players union.
Locally on August 22, the NBA Players Union held an important meeting in Las Vegas and announced that Chris Paul would become the new president of the NBA Players Union.
Roger Mason served as the first vice president of the players union.
It is reported that Paul’s election this time is what everyone expects. Paul is usually very popular. He has been selected to the All-Star Game 6 times. In 2013, Paul won the All-Star Game MVP. He is the head of the Clippers.
He is very enthusiastic about participating in trade union affairs, and I believe that having him as the chairman of the players union will benefit the development of the NBA.
Prior to this, James also intended to run for the chairman of the NBA Players Union, and had consulted with Paul, but due to time and other issues, he finally gave up his candidacy.
The executive committee consists of the following: Mason, Jerry Stackhouse, James Jones, Andre Iguodala, Stephen Curry, Steve Blake, Anthony Tolliver,
Willie Green and Matt Bonner.
The top priority of the reorganized NBA Players Union is to restore the order of the Players Association, to provide players with more protection and bring more benefits in the future.
