The AI/Billups trade was a good trade for both teams. AI is now surrounded by team players who can play defense...so AI's gamble aren't going to hurt this team as much as it hurt the Nuggets...This Pistons team is basically a better version of the 2001 team that AI took to the finals...and after the season Pistons will have Sheed and AI coming off the books...so they'll have plenty of money to either re-sign them if it works out...and if not go after another young star like Amare and start to rebuild. Joe Dumars again shows why he's one of the best GM's in the NBA.

It should work for the Nuggets too...AI and Carmelo was going no where and everyone knew it...Carmelo now has a team that is built around his scoring ability. The team now has size, defense, and a TRUE PG...Carmelo has no more excuses now. He has a good team and needs to show us that he can be a legit leader.

it gives the Pistons a consistent scorer who can create his own shot, but i think it hurts them in terms of defense and the operation of the offense as a whole. Billups was the glue of that team, so it'll be interesting to see what happens.

Well McDyess isn't going to be staying with the Nuggets, it looks like.

The Pistons are looking to pick up Lebron James in 2010.

What's up with Stephon Marbury and the Knicks? The Knicks don't want him, and I don't think any other team does either. lol

McDyess is an underrated clutch player. hes a big gamer, hes what Nuggets have been needing, they should move Billups on, not McDyess.

If that were too happen, Cleveland as an organization, and a city would crumble.

I still believe that LeBron will be heading to Brooklyn, but I guess we'll jus have to wait and see.


Altho if LeBron does want to win some titles....we're all open arms here.

With the way the writer in that yahoo article puts it, almost seems like a lock for Detroit. Seems like above all else, LeBron wants to win and do it a lot. Dumars has definitely shown that he can put a great team together for a long time. Billups leaving is the end of an era, I loved when that squad kicked the shit out the lakers. LeBron in Detroit would probably win alot of rings.

Detroit getting Lebron seems like a stretch...even if they have the expiring contracts. I doubt they'll be able to get him...but if they do, damn. Lebron and Greg Oden (If he can stay healthy) are gonna be fighting for titles for the next 8 years...

Well the Nets might not even be going to Brooklyn anymore though unless the deal to move can be salvaged.

I think if Toronto can be a competitive team within the next couple years Bosh will stay. I can see him playing for a Texas team if he leaves.

I doubt Lebron will go to Detroit, i dunno it doesnt seem to be in his character to leave Cleveland for a rival team. but you never kno Dumars is a smart GM. he must have something up his sleeve. Detroit can be in a position where in 2010 they can sign 2 players to max contracts.
