Trading Billups will break this teams chemistry period. My day is totally ruined seriously.
My man I feel you but after much debate with my boys (the brain trust) they have managed to convince me why this is a great trade for us. O and im not talking just cuz we get to rent IVO for a year. Pulled this off of Truehoop.com no need to post a link jist of the article can be summed up in 2 paragraphs.
"Down, the road the Pistons becomes the driving force of big-time free agency as soon as Iverson's contract comes off the books next summer. The Pistons will combine a winning environment, one of the most respected general managers in the game, and -- depending on salary cap levels that are yet to be set, and extensions that may yet be given to existing Pistons -- likely enough cap space to sign two free agent players to max contracts over the next summers of 2009 and 2010.
Feast your eyes on this list of players who will be available. 2010 free agents include LeBron James, Dwyane Wade
, Chris Bosh, Amare Stoudemire, Ray Allen, Tyson Chandler, Manu Ginobili, Richard Jefferson, Joe Johnson, Tracy McGrady, Yao Ming, Steve Nash, Dirk Nowitzki and Michael Redd."
I hope this clears up y I said we have just now entered into the Lebron Sweepstakes. And I said that b4 i even read this article for the record.
