Chauncey Billups Poster-Denver Nuggets

March 11, 2009

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.

Portland Trail Blazers Poster-Aldridge, Roy, Oden-Brand New

January 26, 2009

The Portland Trail Blazers are one of the most interesting teams in all of professional sports. They entered the NBA in 1970. Despite all of the excitement, they struggled for the better part of their first four years until a watershed moment which changed the Blazers’ fate forever; the team selected Bill Walton first overall in the 1974 draft. Walton emerged as a premier big man in the NBA. This, coupled with the selection of Maurice Lucas in the dispersal draft and the hiring of Jack Ramsay as head coach lead to the  Blazers’ first ever NBA championship in 1977. The Blazers’ would-be dynasty disintegrated shortly after, leading to the need for a rebuild. Thus, the 80’s were also a successful period for Portland, who were lead by Clyde “the Glide” Drexler. After only missing the playoffs once in the 1980’s, the Blazers’ made it to the NBA finals both in 1990 and 1992, losing to the Detroit Pistons and Chicago Bulls, respectively. Soon after, the team undertook some personnel changes which backfired. Rasheed Wallace, Briant Grant, Kenny Anderson, Damon Stoudamire, Darius Miles and many others took turns trying to guide the Blazers’ back to prominence. However, it was not meant to be…until a new crop of young talent came along.

Commemorating the theme of the 2008-09 season, and the three young superstars set to make the Blazers RISE back into the NBA’s elite! Sure to become an iconic piece of all-time Trailblazers memorabilia, “Rise With Us” features the team’s trio of top-six draft picks – dominating big man Greg Oden, dynamite scoring sensation Brandon Roy, and the tower-of-power, LaMarcus Aldridge.
