FabforumAbout 20 NBA players convened Friday at a Beverly Hills hotel to hear union President Derek Fisher and Executive Director Billy Hunter talk about the lockout.

Washington Wizards center JaVale McGee was the first player to depart from the meeting, and he left the media with a telling comment.

“Definitely some guys in there saying that they are ready to fold,” McGee said. “But it’s some guys that -- the majority -- are ready to stand strong.”
