J.R. Smith 360 Alley-Oop from Chauncey Billups

The league’s premier 6-man J.R. Smith of the Denver Nuggets got a chance to shine the other night on an alley-oop from Chauncey Billups.  To me the Nuggets are the only team in the west that has a shot at dethroning the Los Angeles Lakers, looking forward to a dope western conference finals matchup between them two.

Rodney Rogers paralyzed in Accident

Former NBA and Wake Forrest standout player Rodney Rogers is now paralyzed from the shoulders down due to an accident he had on his ATV when he was riding in North Carolina on December 1st. Rogers a former all-american and the 1993 ACC player of the year at Wake Forrest, averaged over ten points a game over his 12-year career in the NBA and also a won the sixth man award in 1999, Rogers played for 8 NBA teams before he retired in 2005 season. I remember Rodney wetting 3’s back in the 2001-2002 season when he was traded along with Tony Delk to the Boston Celtics, with Paul Pierce, Antoine Walker, Eric Williams and Walter McCarty led the C’s to the Eastern Conference Finals.  Get well Rodney Rogers!

 

Allen Iverson heading to Detroit

NBA superstar Allen Iverson of the Denver Nuggets it seems will be traded to the Detroit Pistons in exchange for Chauncey Billups and Antonio Mcdyess.  The Pistons already had a talented backcourt with Billups and Richard Hamilton, with the addition of A.I. the Pistons may have the most explosive backcourt in the league.  The Nuggets will gain a more “true” point guard with former NBA finals MVP Chauncey Billups and also Mcdyess can fill the void left by Marcus Camby who was picked up by the L.A. Clippers in the off-season.  This is definately a blockbuster trade pulled off by Joe Dumars only a few games into the season and expect The Pistons to challenge the defending champion Celtics in the East once again this year.
