At the end of his first game, the garden crowd was chanting his name NY style, "CHAUNCEY...BILLUPS". NY fans and media have already grasped what Chauncey brings as a leader, teacher and Winner. It sucks for Chauncey that he was uprooted from his family (14 mil may ease) but the result of this trade is that Chauncey will be the King of both New York and Denver. I do think the trade made sense. Felton is a nice player but he can't drain the 3 like Chauncey, who quietly is hitting 44% 3pg this year. Felton is 33% career. Chauncey's lack of quickness was exposed by Dwill last year. But Chauncey's charisma is going be a big hit in NY. Writeup about him in today's NY times.
