This is probably the greatest statement ever. I was present at the majority of the home games and never missed a televised game from '03 to '07. Ben was such a beast on the boards and a great leader; it was time, but I was sad to see him retire this year. I can't lie, though, I was upset when he did his little stint with 'DA Bulls'.
During all those great years there wasn't a big 3, a major superstar (although according to the media Billups seems to be just under the brink and I loved when Chauncey would come in and the PA announcer did the trademarked Ba-Ba-Billups). It was great, team basketball. Hell, in my opinion they are the one of the only teams, if not the only, that won it all and didn't have Superstars.
Billups, RIP, Tayshuan, Sheed and Wallace
