Chauncey Billups Returns to Detroit: The Homecoming Dance

Posted by Bob Biscigliano in , ,

Tonight's homecoming is going to be an emotional night for both Chauncey Billups and the Detroit Pistons. I also think it could get awkward. Chauncey has been going steady with the best in the Northwest for a little over four months now (which is ages in high school relationship time) and things have been going really well for the two. ((Tammy says they made out at Carmelo's house when his parents were out of town. Apparently it was during a game of 'seven minutes in heaven." Chauncey wears number seven to commemorate the event. That's what Tammy says, at least. That's Classic Tammy. She's the school gossip queen.))

Meanwhile, the Pistons are taking the breakup very hard. They merely go through the motions with their little rebound fling, Allen Iverson. Everyone in school knows it's not going to last very long because he's going to Free Agency U on July 1st. They fight all the time and rumor has it, they are taking a break right now. At least that's what Tammy told me.

So tonight's little homecoming will definitely have it's moments of awkwardness, but it will also emotional for all those who haven't seen Chauncey take the Palace dance floor with that infectious smile of his since this past October. He spent six of his greatest NBA years with Detroit, and they even had sex one time in 2004. He has an MVP trophy of the event to prove it. Sometimes good things just have to come to an end, though.

I'm absolutely sure Chauncey will receive a standing ovation from the Pistons crowd as he comes through the door with Denver. There will also be whispers and a lot of staring, but I expect nothing less of the Detroith faithful. While I will always wish Chauncey the best in the rest of his career, I just hope the Pistons don't lose their cool with Chauncey being back in town.

Chauncey might try and make the Pistons jealous with the way he backs it up and the way he works it with Denver's offense, but Detroit needs to be the bigger men in this situation. They need to just turn the other cheek, do their thing, and come out as winners in Chauncey's homecoming situation.

Lastly, for the record, I heard Bill Laimbeer is a chaperone. Don't bring alcohol into the gym or he'll confiscate it.
