Chauncey Billups, born in Denver, was an immediate on-court success. Having dominated at the highschool level, he was named to the All-McDonalds Team. Billups was then offered a full scholarship at the University of Colorado, where he continued to blossom for two years. In Chauncey‘s first few years in the NBA, he struggled to find his consistency, having moved around from Boston, to Toronto, to Denver and then onto Minnesota where he finally found his game.
In the summer of 2002, Billups signed on as a free agent with the Detroit Pistons, who were being re-constructed by Joe Dumars. Having also acquired Tayshaun Prince, Ben Wallace, Richard Hamilton and Rasheed Wallace, the Pistons primed themselves for several years of stardom. Billups lead this star-studded team past the LA Lakers in the 2004 NBA Championship, winning the series MVP award along the way.
In November of 2008, Billups was traded back to his hometown Denver Nuggets along with Antonio McDyess in exchange for Allen Iverson. Chauncey has since excelled with the Nuggets, having made the All Star game and he is leading the team to a stellar record along with Carmello Anthony.
This spectacular poster features the man whose long journey to NBA champion and MVP candidate took him through Denver in the late 1990s, and saw him return to the Nuggets as a savior nearly a decade later.
