Default Chauncey Billups likely has torn achilles, may retire.

It's being reported that Billups likely has a torn achilles. Rumors of retirement if true due to time it takes to recover and rehab. Very sad news. Gallinari also got a serious injury tonight from what I heard. So the 2nd and 3rd seed in west lost key guys.

Clippers gotta figure it out because Billups wasn't an ideal SG anyways. Now they should really pursue a SG.

Update: Yeah, it's torn, and his season is over. Read http://www.insidehoops.com/blog/?p=9222

JR Smith to the Clippers, minus C. Billups to keep him in check. That could be entertaining.

JR is still not gonna go to the Clips. I might sound like a homer, its just pretty obvious from the shit he's been tweeting that he's got "other" teams in mind.

Always sucks to lose 11.4 FGA at 36% (Billups) when his backup shoots 50% on 11.4 FGA (Williams).

Replacing his leadership is the problem.

I'm tempted to create another thread: "Billups Chauncey has possibly torn achilles, retirement looks near" since it would be fun seeing the top 3 threads being the same, only with different titles.
