Chauncey Billups: Strengths: Leadership; proven NBA veteran with championship pedigree. Teams can no longer use uncertainty about Billups’ interest in coaching as an excuse to pass him over. League executives anticipate there will be a more vigorous pursuit of Billups as a head coaching candidate now that he’s a Clippers assistant coach and has made his desire to be a head coach clear.
“You kind of go back to the old Detroit team that won it,” a longtime Western Conference scout said, referring to the 2003-04 Pistons, whose lone All-Star that season was Ben Wallace, a defensively dominant big man and Detroit’s sixth-leading scorer. “They just had a lot of really good players. “I thought Utah needed another star, but I’ve changed on that.”
This is Chauncey’s first season as an NBA coach, a career path that forever seemed preordained. “I love it, I love it. I really, really do like it. I ran from it for quite a while, but I really like it now that I’m here,” he said. “I’m pouring in everything I have to these guys. They respect me, and when they respect you, you’re obligated to pour it all in on to the players. If you’re all in, those guys are going to respond. It’s just like playing in that way.”
