Allen Iverson for Chauncey Billups?

First of all, put the money and salary cap issues aside. Is it just me or did the Denver Nuggets rip off the Detroit Pistons in this trade? Look, I’m not saying that A.I. isn’t good.  He’s definitely pound for pound up there in talent.  But the Nuggets finally got what they needed: a leader.  Chauncey “Mr. BIG SHOT” Billups. Finally, someone who’s going to distribute the ball WITH championship experience. Someone who can take Carmelo Anthony to the next level.  I’m not saying that the Nuggets are favorites to win the Championship but the West sure as hell got harder. As for the Pistons, the East was ripe for the taking.  Maybe they’re making a move for Lebron. Maybe they’re trying to get younger by clearing A.I.’s cap space next year. All I know is that if I’m a Detroitian, I’m pissed off.  Sure, “we” have Rodney Stuckey but this team’s window is closing fast. They’ll make the playoffs this year but without a foor leader, they ain’t going far. Looks like rebuilding time in Motown.
