Chauncey Billups

  1. Chauncey Billups doesn’t trust players’ collective ability to remain strong for a full season

    This lockout has never been as simple as one side negotiating against another in an effort to produce a fair deal. There are a number of factors circling the negotiations that inevitably have an impact on their progress and timeline. The NBPA still holds the threat of decertification, a breaking point from which there is…

  2. Donnie Walsh thinks Knicks have the core of a title team

    Sep 23, 2011, 10:37 AM EDT

    Donnie Walsh

    The last time the New York Knicks were NBA champions, George Steinbrenner had just purchased the Yankees for $10 million, the World Trade Center towers opened in New York and Elvis Presley was doing a live concert from Hawaii. So it’s been a while. But former GM and now team consultant — meaning they paid…

  3. Video: Highlights from day 6 of Impact Vegas “lockout league”

    Sep 21, 2011, 2:01 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Phoenix Suns

    We already showed you that Rudy Gay looked plenty healthy Tuesday at the Impact Competitive Training Series (the “lockout league”) in Las Vegas. But there was other stuff worth seeing. For example, not only does Chauncey Billup’s knee look good, so does his jumper. And John Wall has serious handles (but you probably knew that).…

  4. Chauncey Billups says his knee is good to go… are the Knicks?

    Sep 21, 2011, 11:39 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    Chauncey Billups is 35 years old and wasn’t really the guy anyone pictured leading a high-octane offense when he was 25. But there he will be whenever next season starts, as the point guard for Mike D’Antoni’s New York Knicks. That was hampered last season by a strained left knee that made it harder and…

  5. Chauncey Billups will see if he can work those Knicks workouts into the dance recital schedule

    Sep 18, 2011, 5:26 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Chauncey Billups

    Chauncey Billups talked to Newsday this week and among the topics of conversation was a discussion of those team workouts being put together in Florida for the Knicks players during the lockout. While it’s hard to factor Billups as anything short of one of the hardest workers in the league and a veteran with great…

  6. Billups wants to play and get paid, but sees big picture

    Sep 16, 2011, 9:25 AM EDT

    Knicks Celtics Basketball

    Chauncey Billups speaks for a lot of NBA veterans. These are guys who have been around because they can play — and with that comes some nice paydays. Billups is set to make $14.2 million next season in the last year of his deal. He wants to get paid. He wants to play. But he…

  7. Here’s your roster of guys playing in Vegas Impact Series

    We’ve been telling you about the Impact Competitive Training Series — don’t you dare call it a league — which kicks off next week. And if you’re in Vegas, you can attend it. Impact Basketball, the training facility putting on the event, released to official list of participants. They will form teams, trying to keep…

  8. Talking Vegas Impact Series with Jared Dudley (and why you should watch)

    Sep 7, 2011, 2:49 PM EDT

    Jared Dudley

    The days right after Labor Day is when the great migration of NBA players usually takes place. Like geese heading south for the winter, they board planes and fly to the city where they will get paid to ball — weeks before training camp opens — to start working out and playing pickup with their…

  9. Does Chauncey Billups belong in the Hall of Fame, you know, eventually?

    Aug 14, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT

    NBA Finals Game 3: San Antonio Spurs v Detroit Pistons

    I stumbled across this the other day. Chauncey Billups has played at least a game in the playoffs for a decade. Ten years, that guy has been in the postseason. Now, sure, it’s a team game and the impact of one player doesn’t determine it. But given his impact on teams since 2002 (he averaged…

    Starting Aug. 11 and running for three days a number of men and women will receive the highest honor for their contributions to basketball — they will be inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

  11. Billups wants Knicks to build team not collect stars

    Jun 30, 2011, 8:44 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New York Knicks

    The Knicks have two big stars now — Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire — and New York fans are dreaming of adding Chris Paul or Dwight Howard to that mix. New CBA, what new CBA? Those fans realize the road to the NBA finals out of the Eastern Conference goes through Miami and their three…

  12. Stunning news: Knicks would still like to get Steve Nash

    From the NBC Sports Department of the Obvious, we bring you this news: The New York Knicks still have interest in getting Steve Nash. The New York Post has the shocking details. There have been renewed whispers the Knicks have inquired about Suns point guard Steve Nash, who lives in SoHo in the offseason. The…

  13. Knicks targeting Jonny Flynn?

    Jun 19, 2011, 8:59 AM EDT

    Jonny Flynn

    Back when Mike D’Antoni first took over as head coach of the Knicks and they were trying to get back on their feet, the Knicks signed a player they thought would be the point guard of the future. With D’Antoni’s system so reliant on a distributing playmaker, grabbing a versatile point guard who had shown…

  14. Knicks pick up option on Chauncey Billups

    Apr 27, 2011, 3:38 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    He’s not cheap at $14.2 million a year, and he’s not young at age 35 by next playoffs. But the Knicks were not going to find a better point guard for their team next season. So they picked up the option on Chauncey Billups, the team announced Wednesday. “We have made a decision to keep…

  15. Now what, New York Knicks?

    Apr 25, 2011, 10:31 AM EDT

    Knicks Celtics Basketball

    If you asked any Knicks fan before the season if they would take a trip to the playoffs and a trade that brings them Carmelo Anthony this season, they would have taken it. But it’s premature to hang the “Mission Accomplished” banner. The Knicks accomplished goals and a good season. You can say they are…

  16. NBA Playoffs: Knicks take one more swing at Celtics

    Apr 24, 2011, 1:28 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks - Game Three

    Let’s start with the injury report: No Chauncey Billups and maybe no Amar’e Stoudemire for the New York Knicks. No Shaquille O’Neal for Boston, but that has not mattered. New York always had just a puncher’s chance in this series — they were less talented but if Stoudemire could take over one game, if Anthony…

  17. Biillups out, Stoudemire may join him on Knicks bench Sunday

    Apr 24, 2011, 10:10 AM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire

    Injuries are not what led to the now inevitable end to the Knicks season at the hands of the Celtics in the first round. But it did speed the process along. Point guard Chauncey Billups is almost certainly out for Game 4 and Amar’e Stoudemire may join him on the bench. Stoudemire’s back tightened up…

  18. MRIs on Stoudemire, Billups negative; both questionable for Friday

    Apr 20, 2011, 6:43 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    The good news — it’s nothing serious. The MRIs for both Amar’e Stoudemire and Chauncey Billups confirmed the original diagnosis in both cases, reports the New York Daily News. That’s a break for New York. Well, except that both are on the bubble for Game 3, and the Knicks losing Friday night to the Celtics…

  19. Knicks need to execute late or Celtics will be executioner

    New York Knicks forward Anthony and head coach D'Antoni react in Game 2 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff series against the Boston Celtics in Boston

    The Knicks are not dead in their series against the Celtics. But when they take the floor Friday night in a shaking-the-building loud Madison Square Garden, there will be a guy standing in the corner wearing a full length black hooded robe, with a boney hand holding a sickle. He’s waiting for just one more…

  20. Knicks’ Stoudemire leaves game with back spasms (Billups to have MRI, too)

    Apr 19, 2011, 8:43 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics - Game One

    Considering how banged up the Knicks are suddenly, they are hanging right in this series (for the first six quarters anyway). Amar’e Stoudemire — the Knicks best, and really only, good player in the fourth quarter of Game 1 — left Game 2 with back spasms. He was expected to return but did not come…

  21. Knicks’ Chauncey Billups “very questionable” for Game 2

    Apr 18, 2011, 12:20 PM EDT

    Knicks Celtics Basketball

    UPDATE 12:20 pm: Billups sat out practice and Mike D’Antoni called him “very questionable” for Game 2 Tuesday, night, according to a tweet from Alan Hahn of Newsday. That could be real trouble for the Knicks. In that game and in the series. 8:11 am: The Knicks could have used Chauncey Billups at the end…

  22. Knicks go without Stoudemire, Billups returns Friday night

    Apr 8, 2011, 12:23 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    It’s a lot like going to a Broadway show and finding out all the understudies will be on stage that night. There’s not going to be a lot of star power in New Jersey tonight. Amar’e Stoudemire will sit out for the Knicks, according to a tweet from Steve Adamek of the Bergin Record. Stoudemire…

  23. Knicks’ tired legs leading to fourth-quarter collapses

    Mar 24, 2011, 9:52 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    It happened again Wednesday night — the Knicks had seized a lead with a 15-6 run just before halftime then solidified it with a 7-0 spurt early in the third quarter. They had a shot at a big win over Orlando. Then it fell apart, as it has so often lately for the Knicks. The Magic were…

    Jerry West is trying to talk some sense into New Yorkers. Good luck with that. The Logo spoke with the Associated Press and said what Knicks management and everyone on that end of the Carmelo Anthony trade has said — this is going to take time. To expect immediate results was a mistake, the trade…

  25. The Knicks have stopped running, stopped winning

    Mar 22, 2011, 8:29 AM EDT

    Chauncey Billups, Carmelo Anthony, New York Knicks

    There’s no making some Knicks fans happy, they expect the team to win two Larry O’Brien trophies a season and anything short is a failure. But it’s more than the losing that is making them unhappy lately. Talk to Knicks fans, check out the message boards and you hear that it’s the way they are…
