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.

I don't understand this at all. 2 years ago, AI was worth nothing more than Andre Miller + filler, and this year, having aged, declined, and gotten fat, he's worth an NBA Finals MVP.

TERRIBLE TRADE FOR THE PISTONS!

Mr Big Shot is the heart-n-soul of the Pistons.

He is a defensive stopper, scorer and leader. A low-maintenance star.

Every year people talk about the Pistons as being washed up. I always disagreed; they're still dangerous and elite as long as Billups is there.

Now the Pistons get a me-first, shot-happy, ball-hoggin, no defence, high-maintenance 33-year old Iverson.

Don't act like Billups was a finals MVP last year, he himself has declined as well. Billups has been dissapointing the past few seasons.

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.

Are you kidding me??? Does that mean Rip Hamilton or Tayshaun Prince are going to either play out of position or come off the bench?? Seriously??

Trying to figure why this trade is happening…

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???

I actually like it for the Pistons....lets face it, they weren't winning the title with the samer roster.

C-Sheed
PF-Maxiell
SF-Prince
SG-Rip
PG-Iverson

2 Declining players......

But I don't understand the sense of this trade, I dont think either team got better then they were.

At least Detroit gets a huge expiring contract.

As a Boston fan, I love this move.

AI is a much better matchup for Rondo than Billups, who killed us in our two playoff losses last year (together with Rip).

I have to say it again, I love it.
