Default Billups didn't think of retiring while hurt

"Not one time did I think about retiring, not once," Billups said. "That's just part of my background, it's how I'm built. I've heard the people talking, (saying) 'it ain't gonna work.' Don't get me wrong, it fueled me and helped my motivation but had nothing to do with me coming back. I have some good years left and that's what I'm gonna show."

Even though he won't play tonight for the Clippers (peroneal tendinitis) as they bring their nine-game winning streak to The Palace, he still hasn't forgotten about the place that turned him from a nomad to a household name, champion and MVP, and then back to a nomad of sorts.

It's hard to believe but it's been four years since he was traded from Detroit, in the beginning of the 2008-09 season for Allen Iverson.
