“The first time I did acupuncture, it was part of my recovery after I tore my Achilles [in 2012],” five-time All-Star and 2004 champion Chauncey Billups told HoopsHype. “The guy I went to for my rehab suggested that it would be good and help with some of the swelling and stuff like that. I tried it and it did work really well. It helped the swelling and took some of the pain away, so it became a weekly thing for me for a while. I don’t love needles, but I was at the point where I like, ‘Shit, I just want to get better. That’s what pushed me to do it, and it worked well. I’m not going to lie, it was pretty cool.”
The complete list of 179 eligible candidates was announced Thursday. The other NBA players eligible for the first time are: Ray Allen, a 10-time All-Star who won titles with the 2007-08 Boston Celtics and the 2012-13 Miami Heat and made the most 3-pointers in NBA history (2,973); Grant Hill, a seven-time All-Star and co-Rookie of the Year (along with Kidd) in 1994-95 who overcame a career-threatening ankle injury to play 18 seasons; Chauncey Billups, a seven-time All-Star who earned the nickname “Mr. Big Shot” and played a key role on the Detroit Pistons’ 2003-04 championship team; Richard “Rip” Hamilton, who co-starred with Billups on the Pistons’ last title team and was selected to three All-Star teams. “I’m humbled and honored to be nominated,” Billups told ESPN’s The Jump. “… I played really hard my entire career and left it on the floor.”
