In terms of leadership Billups was no.1. I think Ben was number 2. I don't know about the leadership qualities of Rip,Sheed and Tayshaun. Tayshaun is quiet. Sheed seems like he's more of the crazy general type. Not sure about how Rip is in lockerroom situations. They also had battle tested vets like Lindsey Hunter and Dale Davis. McDyess too.
