As for Billups, almost more than half of his shots are 3 pointers. So, meh.
TS% is actually better. FTs counts just as much as normal shots. When you put yourself in position to get FTs, that is good shot selection.

Billups will help them obviously, but I don't think his game will age all that well.

He's a very smart player, but he has never been a great defender, and I've always felt him to be more of a scoring pg ( a smart one, that picks his spots) but not great in transition and not exactly a creative passer/playmaker...just a guy that makes the smart read/play. As in if his 3pt shot isn't falling (since he doesn't really drive to the basket anymore), he's not a huge help to you.

Going to be interesting to see how he recovers from an Achilles injury. And if it effects his shot.

All he needs to do is be better than Willie Green to make the Clippers better and he will be.

It's hilarious. This Brandon guy is as bad as most Lakertards. Can't accept the FACT that the Clippers are legit championship contenders. If the Clips win it all, this guy will come say "The entire league was plagued with injuries which is why the Clips won it all"

No one is saying Billups will be that finals MVP when he comes back. Chauncey is one of the smartest player in the league and never had to rely on athleticism. An Achilles injury would be devastating if Chauncey was an athletic beast. And he's not gonna suddenly forget how to play defense. Look at these great defenders late in their careers: Grant Hill, MWP, Bruce Bowen, etc. Hill was plagued with injuries and lost his athletism but he's a better defensive player at his old age than he was before his Orlando days. MWP is not athletic at all but he's still one of the best defenders in the league. Bruce Bowen was one of the best defensive players in the league in his final season in the league.

Again, Chauncey will not be the old Chauncey but he'll still be good enough to play 30 mins if he has to, will still be a great shooter, will still be a good defensive player, will still be able to run plays when Paul is on the bench, will still hit the big shots, will still be a leader. I can go on and on. The Clippers already are dominating and beating top level teams convincingly. Everyone is talking about "teams still need time to mesh and get their chemistry together." well guess what? So are the Clippers. So not only the Clippers are waiting on 2 major rotation players to come back, they are still working on their chemistry. When Hill and Billups are back, that makes the Clippers that much more dangerous.

I expecting an epic standing ovation on Chauncey's return. Chauncey hits a few big shots to stretch a lead and goes to the bench with a standing ovation with the Clips up by 15 with 3 mins to go kind of shit.
