Default Can you imagine...

Can you just imagine what kind of team we would have today, if we would've kept Chauncey Billups? By now, we could have been one of the dynasties in the East.

Does anyone remember if we traded him away or his contract was up?

The problem with this kind of thought is that it can be said for just about any franchise..

"Imagine we drafted Michael Jordan" - Portland fans

"Imagine we kept Kobe Bryant" - Charlotte Hornets fans.

"Imagine we kept...." Every other teams fans.

Another thing is, if we had kept Chauncey, there would most like be no Bosh, Bargnani, Vince would have never been in Canada more than 1 or 2 times a year..

It's a nice thought and I agree with the fact that if we had Chauncey Billups on the team now through free agency we would be a great team but you are just pretty much saying what any other team can say about the "what ifs"


As for your question.. I think we traded him, but I am not entirely sure.

First he is only one player. Who else would have been surrounded around him?

Secondly who is to say he would have developed into the player he is if he stayed in Toronto. And I don't think he wanted to be here so he probably would not have been motivated to develop as much.
