HoopsHype Chauncey Billups rumors

July 17, 2013 Updates

The relationship between a very strong-willed player and a strong-willed general manager was more mentor-mentee than employee-superior, and Billups felt he was owed more by Pistons president Joe Dumars. A phone call started the process of healing. The two men wouldn’t have been sitting side by side Tuesday if the seeds of reconciliation had not been sewn. “I just needed to hear him apologize for how it went down, to kind of stand on it, and he did that,” Billups said. “As a man, I can’t do anything but respect that. “Because I had to know it was nothing personal, it was what he thought was a good business move. But we had a personal relationship. I forgave Joe for all of that and we moved forward. I’m great.” Detroit News

Chauncey Billups said if Pistons had drafted Melo or Bosh rather than Darko, they might have won multiple titles: “If he had drafted either Melo or Bosh, I think maybe that whole team would still be together,’’ Billups said. “We probably would have more championships down the road.
