A few months ago the Denver Nuggets traded Allen Iverson to the Detroit Pistons for Chauncey Billups. On the surface, many would say that giving A.I. was a bad move eventhough the Nuggets werent winning many games and the Pistons were running in mud. But the months since the trade have shown differently. Billups has lead the Nuggets to the #2 seed in the West and had an astounding Game 1 in the playoffs against the Hornets where he had 36 pts with 24pts coming off of 8 3-pointers going against Chris Paul at that. On the other hand, "The Answer" has been benched, cried back problems so he didnt have to play and has even been banned from gambling spots in the Detroit area. A.I. is unquestionable one of the greatest players to play in the NBA but are we seeing his demise right in front of our eyes. I hope not.
