View Full Version : Chauncey Billups is still pretty damn good at 35

Oldtimer Ray Allen is getting headlines for his play, but what about Chauncey: 16 points, 2.5 rebounds and 3.7 assists in just 31 minutes. His assists are down because he is more a spot up shooter. Still, at 35 it's impressive.

Proof that being a winner is not something that has to do with age. Billups has been a winner almost wherever he has gone. The Knicks look lost without him, much like the Pistons did after he was traded for Allen Iverson.

He is solid.

great pick up for the clippers. i thought it was a great move for them in terms of leadership. but he brought a lot more to the table for them then just leadership.

he even changed his position after an entire career of being a floor general. he still gets to distribute the ball at times, but he plays off the ball well too and can really open the floor up for paul and griffen..

his ability to adapt to change at his age is somthing to note as well. some players cant even play their own position properly let alone switch at age 35 to another position to help his team in an area where they may have been lacking.

The Knicks sucked even when they had Billups, and they still do :rolleyes:. Iverson on the Pistons? Horrible comparison.

I've been incredibly unimpressed by him. He's shooting horribly.

I will forever hate billups for the 04 finals along with ben wallace,but I respect his game and the way he came up in the league.

Im not a big fan of billups' game. He was amazing about 8-10 years ago but now i just think he takes away from cp3 too much and takes too many out of system shots.

Come on. He's 35 years old so he shoots 35% from the field!

His stint in Denver, which was a few years ago, helped the team go to the WCF, something that Melo couldn't accomplish. Shows how much you know Billups.

Its funny how two 35+ year old PG's hit a game winning 3 against the Mavs in back2back games haha

He shoots too much sometimes, they can be running a play and he randomly shoots a deep three.

However, with that being said, he really stayed in shape and is still a weapon on offense.

He sure is. Makes that Gordon/Kaman/Aminu-for-Paul/Billups trade kind of a steal for the Clippers.

The only thing I don't like is his accuracy is down this year. If he becomes more accurate it will make the Clippers more dangerous.

Hes looking great, cant wait to see him in a Heat uniform next season.

Honestly haven't been thoroughly impressed. He's had a few stellar games and he's had quite a few terrible games so far this year. He must be on the #kobesystem right now. Shoot shoot shoot and keep shooting wether you are making them or not. Very frustrating at times.. Mo Williams has been the superior player between the two this year by far..

billups is a great leader ... he knows how to get fouled... he sometimes takes a charge (flops)... great free throw shooter... and most importantly he is clutch...

I love Billups. If NY had held onto him and had been able to work that sign-and-trade with Dallas for Chandler, the Knicks would have the best record in the league right now.

Meh, lots of 3's and ft's make up for it.

Their record with Chauncey healthy aint so bad.

His numbers don't tell the story, as a Clipper fan you can just tell how much more of a winner and therefore better player he is than almost everyone we've ever had! Last night is a great example...had an awful game then hit the game winner!

Billups has always been a crafty player, a disciplined defender and a great spotup shooter... The knock on his game is that he takes a lot of ill-advised shots, hence the low field-goal percentage and inconsistent offensive games.

i very highly doubt that. billups would have made a difference but not that big. they still dont play d and they need a new coach.

He fits in nicely in the clippers guard rotation. His a proven winner, champion and has a depth of experience.

Just wait until he gets hurt at a crucial point in the season like he did for the Knicks and then sits on the bench when he probablly could be playing.

he's very inconsistent and his FG% is awful because of that

Chauncey has always been more an intangibles player than a stats player. Even on games where he struggles statistically, he has a penchant to still leave a mark with big plays down the stretch.
