it is indeed bittersweet…
He is happy to be home at a better time in his career… its almost like the Pistons did him a small favor by trading to his most desirable destination.

still with the lack of defense crap? its our offense thats the problem, not our D (which was around 10th last year)

If Detroit gels with Iverson they could be BETTER than the Celtics. If you get Rasheed motivated, he's every bit as good as KG. Iverson is a significant punch to add to Rasheed / Hamilton / Prince

Great deal for both teams. The Pistons used to be a team with 4 great second-options and no first option. The Nuggets used to be a team with 2 great first options and no second option, and no defense. Now the makeup of both teams make more sense.

Nobody on the Pistons wants to, or in fact can, handle the ball or create a shot for himself consistently on-ball. AI can now assume the offense from a bunch of good players who don't want it and, with the exception of Sheed, wouldn't be able to do anything with it anyway. The Pistons are a team of guys who want to be passed to, and even better, and unlike any group of teammates AI has ever had, can catch the ball. Meanwhile the Nuggets can finally make Melo the centerpiece of their offense and I think Billups is the ideal fit with him, and improves them defensively, and even more importantly I think, makes them legit in the halfcourt game needed to win.

It would have been nice to keep McDyess, and I have no idea what exactly the Nuggets want with him unless his contract is up soon (how many former-athletic monsters with monster potential who became washed up old disappointments overnight because of injuries does one roster need? Is Kemp coming back too?) but I don't see the Pistons missing him too badly.

Dice has actually developed a very solid post-athlete game and has played some of his best team ball post his athletic prime. his shot is money out to 15-17 ft, his D is great and he is a very smart player with spacing the floor on both O and D. so the nuggets would want him cause it makes their big man rotation significantly better. this aint J howard.

other than that, good post.

this trade is where we find out what iverson's legacy will be... he's been put in such a great situation, i know i'll be judging his legacy based on what happens in detroit. he's finally in a situation where he has a great shot to win and win BIG. i for one think a finals appearance isn't out of the question. lakers vs. pistons pt. 2 would be a great series. he's got a ton of shooters around him so he'll get plenty iso's, and if he can be as efficient as he was last night [28 points on 12 shots from the field] this pistons team can be very dangerous.

as for chauncey, i think this is where everyone will realize how good of a point guard he really is. he was the catalyst for the pistons the past few years... he was their best player. now he'll lead the nuggets deep into the playoffs, i wouldn't be surprised if he took them to the WCF.

lol@Billups taking Denver to the WCF. Why the hell would you type that? Since when did Billups cure ALL of Denvers problems? You're overrating the hell out of Billups potential impact. I just love how this team loses Iverson/Camby and replaces them with Billups and moves Nene/Jr Smith into the starting lineup and this is a better TEAM. Also love how George Karl becomes a better coach as well. Seriously, rethink what you typed. Try breaking down Denvers strengths, weaknesses, how the team is coached and player personnel. Then tell me with a straight face adding Billups you wouldnt be surprised to see them in the WCF. Like really. Stop.
