CP3 and Blake will be just fine without him.

Another Clipper player bites the dust.


The only positive coming from this is that maybe Williams will start to see more playtime now.

At first I didn't want to believe the rumors, but it's been a full minute and no one from his side has denied it.

Yes. The Pistons franchise has a history of treating their champions well in that regard. The Bad Boys era brought about the retiring of #11 (Isiah Thomas), #4 (Joe Dumars), #40 (Bill Laimbeer), #10 (Dennis Rodman), and #15 (Vinnie Johnson), not to mention #2 in honor of Chuck Daly and his two rings.

I believe the Pistons will, at the very least, retire Chauncey's #1 and Ben's #3.

knicks dodged a bullet there, injury with billups is inevitable at this point in time, and we would never had tyson and linsanity

They won't lose his leadership. He'll still be on the sideline. On the floor, they have Paul.



Now, it's almost kinda acceptable to go after JR Smith...no...no it isn't.

Chauncey is the model of the consumate pro. I hope this isn't the end of the line.

Tough for the clipps. JR Smith would be an especially good get for the Clips now.
