Billups: "Knicks a couple pieces short' of title + I Would Love To Sign With The Heat"
 

 
By Ian O'Connor

Chauncey Billups wants to make one thing clear: Hes angry at the situation, but hes not angry at the Knicks.

So when asked if he believes the team that just fired him is capable of winning a championship, the point guard was thinking with his head, not his heart.

I think they are probably a couple of pieces short, but I wont say what they are, Billups said Saturday by phone.

The signing of Tyson Chandler gives the Knicks a frontcourt to die for, but leaves them deficient in the backcourt, Mike Bibby or no Mike Bibby.

I want nothing but the best for Melo and Amare, and I love Tyson; Im happy he got his money, Billups said. Dont think I dont want the Knicks to do well.But I do believe they undervalued what I brought to the table.

Billups had some other interesting things to say about his former team, among them:

*He grew tired of the constant Chris Paul talk. From the first day I got there, it was always about who was going to be the next point guard, without giving me a real chance. I get it, but at the same time my track record speaks for itself. Give me a real chance to prove I can be that guy. The whole deal with Denver was about Melo, and thats understandable, hes a young star in the league. But at the same time, I dont think the Knicks valued what else they got in the deal.

*He believes he might still be a Knick without the injuries suffered against the Magic and Celtics. When I was healthy in New York, it was great. We were rolling after that win in Miami after the trade, and then I get the thigh contusion in Orlando. I come back, we get rolling again, and then I go down in the playoffs and the injury there affected the whole outlook of my short tenure with the Knicks. If Im healthy against Boston, weve got a really good chance in that series. But once I got hurt, its like they forgot all about the impact I did have on that team.

*Mike DAntoni might have a tougher time running his team through Carmelo Anthony, instead of his point guard, than he thinks. Its a tough transition, especially in Mikes system where the point guard is so important as someone to make plays for everybody else. Melo is a good playmaker, but hes going to be called on to do that more. Toney (Douglas) is a good player, but hes young. I dont want to say they dont have a point guard, but their best playmaker right now is Melo.

*On the possibility of signing with a team like Miami that might face the Knicks in the playoffs: I would like a chance at them, Ill tell you that much. I would absolutely love that.

is he threatening retirement to avoid being bid upon? i figured he would want to go back to Denver...he would probably be bid on by a team just to prevent the Heat from getting him as a UFA...

Chalmers though "inconsistent" at least showed up on a daily basis in the Finals and was making big shots () to attempt to keep the Heat in the game instead of LBJ a.ssing up on open wide layups.

Chalmers was the 3rd best player on the Heat in the Finals IMO.

Miami fans what happens if you do get Billups? Then what?

I see a lot of happy faces but he's still a old man, who will get injured & who at times shoots more than he should.

Chauncey can shoot, pass, defend....he does everything you want a PG to do though maybe he isn't as quick as the younger pgs in the league nowadays, he's called Mr. Big Shot for a reason and isn't afraid to take those high risk shots.

Ahh yes I did forget about that, apologizes my good friend. While this could be a good deal especially seeing that Chalmers can learn from the veteran, this is very much a gamble.

Then again it's looking bleek for teams trying to sign solid point guards for this free agency period.
