If you are a regular reader of mine or a twitter follower you should know how close I hold Chauncey Billups to my heart as does the city of Denver. Chauncey is as much a part of the Denver landscape as the Rocky Mountains, the MMJ dispensaries and the Denver Nuggets. Chauncey feels the love for Denver as well but when the Denver Nuggets front office included him in the trade that sent Carmelo Anthony to New York, he had been burned for the last time.
Fool me once, shame on you
Fool me twice, shame on me
It shouldn’t come to a surprise to Nuggets fans that Chauncey Billups has no desire to play in a Nuggets uni any time in the forseeable future.
“I’ll say this: Me and (team president) Josh (Kroenke) are cool,” Billups said. “I’m good with everybody. But I can’t see me, basketball-wise, playing in Denver again. What do you want me to do? They traded me two times. Want me to give them a third opportunity? My years there were great. We accomplished some great things. And they are looking good. … I had some great years there, and I’m always going to live there, but I can’t see that.”
