07:04 AM ET 07.26 | Partly for what he brings to the locker room, Chauncey Billups' leadership and mentoring qualities made the veteran point guard an attractive add in Detroit. That's not surprising when considering the Pistons' young group of players headed by center Andre Drummond, power forward Greg Monroe and guard Brandon Knight. But the first player Billups mentioned at his July 16 news conference might be surprising. "I think we got a lot of really good young players on the team," he said. "Not a lot of leftovers from when I was here with the exception of Rodney Stuckey, who I think so much of and I'm looking forward to getting back and teaming up with him. I think that he can be a great player, and I want to help him get there. I want him to get there."

Stuckey has some inconsistency problem. Kinda sad that he should have said Knight instead of Stuckey. Knight may wan to be traded now...

Sorry Chauncey, Stuckey has had every opportunity to be all he could be. The Pistons got rid of you in order to give him the keys. What you see is what you get.

Dumars thinks that as well...Which means, it can't be true!!!

Chauncey, is this your way of saying thank you to Joe Dumars for giving you a job? Joe traded you so he could hand Stuckey the keys to the team. It didn't work out the way Joe planned because he fell in love and over valued Rodney Stuckey and his game. What you see is what you get.

Next Chauncey is going to say that Charlie Villanueva is about to become the best power forward in the game.
