Chalmers plays good D and hits 3s. He's all they need there. Guarding NBA 2s ain't what it used to be. Whole lot of spot up shooters and/or defensive specialists. There's only 6-7 teams with legit SG threats.. Still. That Detroit lineup is going to be an utter enigma.

And now Jennings out for 3 weeks due to some faulty dental work. Incredible.

I hope you're right about Jennings and Billups, but I also hope you're right a lot sooner than you think you'll be. This is Joe D's last straw.

Agreed. Obviously Chalmers has worked out for the Heat quite alright but I've heard much banter about what the pick-and-roll between LeBron and a more capable dribbler/scorer in a point guard could be. I don't think Cole is too far away from stealing himself some more minutes as a result. Yeah, time will tell how Billups works out but I just don't see it happening. I always thought that shifting Brandon Knight over to shooting guard with Billups guiding the youth for a year at point could help Detroit in the long term. Oh well.

Just don't see Billups playing shooting guard for too long or for long stretches. He's up there in years and is still making his way back from an Achilles's heel injury. Limited mobility isn't going to work out well for him at the 2.
