Chauncey talks Knicks


In a recent interview with Chris Tomasson of Hoopshype, Knicks Chauncey Billups spoke up on how we don’t need anymore stars. The Knicks have a squad of stars already, and just need to find a system that works. The Knicks got Stat and ‘Melo, and Chauncey with big trades last year. Chauncey has a ring (2004 NBA Finals MVP) already with the Detroit Pistons, so he not blowing smoke. Check it out!

“It’s not about names, how many people on your team can make the All-Star Game. It’s not about that at all. It’s about putting the right pieces together. You got to have a cohesive unit. You got to have guys that know to play off of one another, guys that are going to be unselfish on both ends of the floor. Those are things that win championships, and we’ve seen that clear as day in the Finals.’’

“It’s not about that,’’ Billups said of collecting big names on a team. “We got two of the biggest names in basketball already (in Anthony and Stoudemire). It’s not about that. It’s about getting somebody that can play with the talent that you have… You look at the Mavericks, and they just share the basketball every time down the floor… Dirk is one of the best the game has ever seen. But he couldn’t do it by himself… So it’s all about the team.’’ Hoopshype
