Default Welcome Back Billups

I will be the first to show love to a University of Colorado alum in Chauncey. We finally have a great point guard that can shoot, pass, and defend. I believe he is the most underrated clutch shooters in the NBA. I'm not just saying that because he is with the Nuggets now, but because he has proven it to me since he played at Boulder.

This line up will be da bomb

pg-Billups
sg-Smith
sf-Melo
pf-Martin
c-nene

this will cause less controversy on starting JR or not, but if we start Kleiza I will be pissed.

Note: there were some signs that A.I. was going to be traded because he didn't play much in the first couple of games.

i am so excited to have billups back- from pg, to leadership, outside shooting to space the floor for melo & nene to work down low, and defense-billups makes the nugs better in so many areas that were lacking

i honestly believe billups makes this team a real basketball team- maybe still a peice or so away, but legitimatly competitive imo

Not everybody welcomes him.. I feel lied to. First they trade Camby to get under the cap.. So what do we do..we trade AI for Billips and we are back where we started. Over the cap AGAIN and unable to pursue any FA for the next 4 years.AI 1 yr 20 million Billips 4 yrs 40 million. Dosen't make sense.If AI dis not resign we could of taken that 20 million and signed one or two YOUNG FA's. We have sold our future again and have zero chances of winning a title. Or getting youth. And how much more are we gonna have to pay Kleiza at the end of the season.Since we for financial reason refused to give him and extension.. I give up. Selling my tickets and staying away!

Well '04 Billups was better than basically any PG in the league.

4 years older though, Billups is still superior to Kidd.

How is Billups starting even a question? Well, I'm guessing Billups will come off the bench on friday much like AI did in his 1st game in Denver. He will recieve a big ovation when he comes off the bench, yadayadayada.
At this point, I couldn't care less who starts or plays. If they don't win on friday then this team is truly hopeless.

You just got a great PG in Billups. I think he will compliment your other players well.

Anyone watch the press conference today on altitude?

I recorded it for a half hour, but it went way longer so I didn't catch it all
