Detroit would be dumb for even considering this. Detroit doesn't need another gunner, Iverson may be a better scorer but Billups is better in almost every other category, and Stuckey is more of an Iverson than a Billups.

Trust me, if you have followed nuggets fans at all, that is the first thing we would all do if we had control.

Detroits management/coaching is far superior to Denver's. AI would start at PG in detroit.

what a crazy deal...some nugget fans like it, some hate it. some piston fans like it, some hate it.

amongst other fans some think its great for denver, bad for detroit and some think its great for detroit and bad for denver.

never seen a trade idea with such split opinions from everyone.

ESPN's ticker is saying this trade is "expected" to happen. Devastating for Detroit if true. Great experiment for moneyballers.

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.

That would be a great deal for Denver. A backcourt of Billups/Smith looks pretty good.

According to the radio, neither player is at practice/shootaround today. Looks like it's happening.

Wow. I just can't believe they traded Chauncey AND McDyess for AI.

Risky risky risky move.
