an observation, and a thought


this morning on Colin Cowherd, he made a point that the Knicks do not need to trade for CP3 because they have Chauncey Billups.  he went on to describe Chauncey as a veteran with an extremely high basketball IQ, with a ton of experience, and then compared him to John Stockton.  in Stockton's last season (in his late-30's) he averaged like 11pts and 8ast, basically on-par with his career averages of 13pts and 9 ast.  Cowherd said that Chauncey's style of play is similar to Stockton's, in that he's not hard on his body and doesn't need extreme athleticism to be effective.  he thinks that 34-year-old Chauncey has a solid 5 years left in him.

i couldn't help but feel like all of the same observations can be said about Andre Miller.  he's also 34, he's got a high basketball IQ, he's not hard on his body, and he hasn't shown any sign of slowing down either.  i, for one, think that Andre can play at this level for another 3-5 years, and i love the composure he brings and the selflessness he demonstrates.  i trust him as the on-court leader of this team, and i would be happy to have him around into his late-30's.  ideally, we can find a young talented PG to be his understudy for the next few years.  To learn to play and lead like he does.  right now, that person is not on this roster.

on a side note, T-Mac is running the point for Detroit these days, and it seems to be prolonging his career.  maybe that's Brandon's future here with us?  not really in the same spirit as my Andre Miller love-fest above, but it seems to be working for T-Mac.
