Re: AI for Billups?
According to the radio, it's now a done deal.
I'm a little confused about a Rip/AI backcourt, but I like it. Chauncey disappears too much in the playoffs. He usually plays great for one out of every four series. AI always brings it. I like the trade, although losing Antonio could hurt. More trading could help bring back a better PF/C to pair with Sheed.
I wouldn't mind a starting backcourt of Afflalo AI. Afflalo's defense is nice, and his shooting has really improved. So who could the Pistons get for some combo of Rip and Maxiell/Brown/Johnson?
I'm just happy the same old crap won't be on the court anymore. AI will bring something the Pistons were lacking...passion.
