07:32 AM ET 02.25 | After all these years, has Father Time finally have caught up to Chauncey Billups? Billups just smiled and said: "The gas light is on. I don't know if there's 15 miles or 30 miles left." His response caused an eruption of laughter. ... Billups, 37, spoke to the media for the first time since he had minor left knee surgery several days ago. The diagnosis is 2-to-3 weeks of rehab before a possible return, but Billups said he isn't going to rush back. So with only one year left (a team option) on his deal, is retirement a possibility? "It all kind of just depends how this feels, how things are with the knee," Billups said of a return next season. "If the knee is fine, sure I would like to come back. But if it's not, I don't want to come back to this."

Could be worse because of his knee injury... He hasn't proven anybody wrong for awhile now.

Retire, you'll get a coaching gig if you want one. If not, fade into the sun set with a healthy retirement fund..
