Default Chauncey Billups?

After the Pistons won the title and he won Finals MVP and was then later on suggested as being the MVP of the league, I couldn't stand him. Well, not so much him but the undue praise he was getting. It kind of transfers over to the player though after a while.

Now, if anything, he's underrated and his play hasn't changed that much. Only the amount of wins the Pistons have gotten. Nobody ever talks about him.

Is he going to leave Detroit? Are they going to try to max him out?

One of the better PGs in basketball...

It's interesting how the media can be riding someone's sac one day and they totally forget said person exists the next.

It's true about the media.
But in my view it does not affect the ability of Chauncey.

He's having his worst season behind the arc since his days in Denver. That's a big part of his game, so he's having a slightly down year.

Billups is one of those players that, as a teammate, you trust & believe in. That is way more important than whatever the media has to say about you.

I also think his opponents could care less about his lack of pub, because they know he's one of the very best pgs in the business.

All in all, he's underrated in the media because we rarely here about him this season - but around the NBA, you know he's well respected and feared for his abilitys.

If the media ranked pg's you dont think Billups would be in the top 5?

Naw. Probably goes something like this in the media world.

Nash
Kidd
Arenas
Iverson
Paul
D.Williams
Hinrich


With Billups being somewhere near the bottom of that group.

So, yeah he would be ranked in the top five in some cases... but I think the majority of the media sees it as Nash/Arenas/Kidd/Williams/Paul (no particular order)

Chauncey says all the time that he likes being the underdog and thrives when people underestimate them. And I agree with the person who said he wouldn't be ranked in most people's top 5 pg list. Except mine of course.

Now ask yourself who votes for the MVP candidates.

I'm saying he's underrated in the media this season - not last year.

Billups is a stud. I'd give up Antoine Walker to get him.

And I'm saying the media doesnt flip flop like the ISH poster does. There is no way he is a top 5 PG last season and this season he no longer is. You cant even defend/support that assumption at all. You assume so on the basis from the fact the media isnt hyping him up, praising him, giving him attention this season. That means little. Heading into the season at the start of the year...checking player rankings from nba.com, espn.com, sportsillustrated.com to mention a few had Billups ranked high not only as a PG but as a player. He was no less than 20 and in most top 15 PLAYERS in the NBA. No way that changes this season because he hasnt had a year like Speedy Claxton to justify so.

Underrated vs Lack of hype are two seperate issues. Period.

Wow, top 15 in most cases? GoBB I have no problems with you but that is what we call over-inflating to make a point.

With the emergence of Williams and the continued play of Paul I have no doubt in my mind the media would flip flop from last year. It makes sence, no?

Interesting view on that. I was under the impression Marion was so underrated before because he never got the hype in the media like a player of his stats should have.

I'm curious as to why you feel both are different issues - because in my mind the hype machine makes you either underrated or overrated.
