Smart financial move by Detroit, and nice short term basketball addition for Denver...though I think the Nuggets will regret it down the road when Billups loses it and they are stuck with his contract.
This really is as good as it gets for AI. He has overstayed his welcome in Denver and was going no where. Now he gets to play with some real talent that is more team oriented. This should fit AI's style well. Rip is their best offensive weapon but he doesnt need to dominate the ball like Melo. AI/Rip backcourt is going to be tough to handle by any team. This also opens the doors for their younger guns in Maxiel and Amir to step up in place of Dice.
It would make more sense next year during the big free agent summer but what FA's are going to be available this summer?
Deal makes sense financially but there are no FA's this summer
Fucking Bill Davidson… always thinking fiscally
AND so what does Detroit do for PG? Is Rip going to sit on the bench? Is AI going to be assigned the point? Whats up with Afflalo, whom now gets lost in this mix? IS there another possible move to be made by February? Sheed and AI for some one???
