WATCH: Pistons Retire Chauncey Billups’ No. 1 Jersey #DetroitBasketball #MotorCity

By , Complex

With members of the 2004 championship team, including Richard Hamilton, Tayshaun Prince, Rasheed Wallace and Ben Wallace, in attendance, the Detroit Pistons retired the No. 1 jersey worn by Chauncey Billups during halftime of tonight’s game against the Denver Nuggets. As a member of the Pistons, Billups came into his own, receiving three of his five All-Star selections, as well as helping lead the team to its first championship in 14 years.

Still, as he stood at center court, Billups could only think about what more he could’ve done for the franchise. “I felt like, two and maybe three championships,” he said. “We were that good.” That drive to always get better and never be satisfied is what made Mr. Big Shot such a great player and leader throughout his time in Motor City.
