Chauncey Billups has announced his retirement

Chauncey Billups has announced his retirement from the game of basketball. Billups spent 17 seasons in the league with the majority of them being with the Detroit Pistons.

He averaged 15.2 points, 5.4 assists, and shot 39% from deep in his career. He averaged 16.5 points and 6.2 assists in 8 seasons with the Pistons, 7 consecutive seasons with Detroit from 2002-09 and then spent the 2013-14 season with the Pistons. He was a leader on the floor and stepped up big time in the clutch.

He was a legend in Detroit, it was where he earned the nickname “Mr. Big Shot” and won a 2004 NBA Finals MVP. I believe his number 1 jersey will be retired in The Palace rafters one day. I hope he can enjoy his retirement, maybe get a coaching or front office job. He was always one of the smartest players on the floor.
