The Billups Influence

If the Celtics beat Detroit in next year’s Playoffs, blame Chauncey Billups. He’s the one who convinced KG to come to Boston.

    Redrum, after yesterdays excellent arguments for Sabonis, you get the pass as being viewed as a donkey.

    KG is ‘best friends’ with Tyronne Lue? What a loser…

    didn’t billups play for the celtics? and they let him go prematurely just like the wolves did?

    How is Tyronn Lue one of KG’s closest friends? Chauncey I can get, because they both played in Minny and they probably hung out during the all-star weekends as all-stars and stuff. But Lue?? They’ve never played on the same team in the league before (not to my knowledge). Are they neighbors or something? Are they from the same city/hometown? Did they play AAU ball together way back when?

    I’m guessing KG hangs with Lue for the leftovers. If you’ve heard about Ty Lue’s rep with the ladies, that might actually not be bad thing.

    KG is friends with everybody. He respects people who make others around him better, like he said in that interview. So…wait, that doesn’t make sense either. I’m just as confused as everybody else. Ryan, do you really think KG has ladies problems?

    One of my buddies met KG’s wife at the Norah Jones concert at the Santa Barbara Bowl earlier this summer. My friend drives the VIP shuttle, and although he is a Celtics fan, told her to keep him away from the Suns. All of this is moot now, and his green shoes and other Celtics gear is back in rotation, but he did say she was easy on the eyes, for whatever that is worth.

    In fairness, Danny did hand them Rasheed on a silver platter, so they kind of owed us one.

    They all know each other from training in the summer at IMG in Florida and with Joe Abunassar in LA and Vegas.

    KG has been on other teams and they haven’t beat the Pistons, what makes the Celtics any different. It won’t! The pistons are past due for their next championship!!
