I heard about this on the radio. Billups has to be one of the most underrated players in the NBA. Great move for Denver if this ends up going down, in my opinion.

Does anyone want Marbury!! After not playing the first game of the year he stated on a post game interview "Well, there is always next year!!" lol just give up after 1 game. I wonder how billups and AI will work playing together.

Winner in all of this will be Denver. Detroit is giving away better true PG and getting a pure scorer. Not good IMO.

I agree this would be a horrible deal for Detroit. Buh Buh Buh Billups is a far more complete player than AI. We didn't need AI (or any other mega star) to win the Championship, but I guess the Pistons are looking to sell tickets instead of winning games instead? Unreal.

Denver is eating a LOT of contract money aren't they? Unless I'm mistaken AI only has a year on his contract. I wonder if Detroit wants to get in on the Bosh/Wade/James sweepstakes.
