This should be interesting, The players bought some serious firepower

Hunter said the NBPA was in the process of converting to a trade association and that all players will be represented in a class-action suit against the NBA by attorneys Jeffrey Kessler and David Boies—who were on opposite sides of the NFL labor dispute earlier this year, Kessler working for the players, Boies for the league.

“The fact that the two biggest legal adversaries in the NFL players dispute over the NFL lockout both agree that the NBA lockout is now illegal and subject to triple damages speaks for itself,” Kessler said in an e-mail to The Associated Press. “I am delighted to work together with David Boies on behalf of the NBA players.”

Stern was not impressed with his legal adversaries.
