First of all, Billups is one of my favorite players and i dont think he is overated, he single handly changed this denver team. But is the name Mr.Big Shot overated because many people say he so clutch, etc. I never see him hit a big shot instead for 2004 finals. So if anyone here can give me facts on his clutchness.

He's very good....but he shouldn't be confused with the guy who killed us in the Finals five years ago. He's slowed down noticeably...the point where Fish can actually guard him and not get killed.

He deserves every part of that nickname. The dude is great. It's no fluke he's been to the Conference Finals 7 straight times.

I almost think he's somewhat underrated. He's a great leader. Great player. I don't think he's overrated at all.

He made some big shots ( 3's ) down the stretch tonight...Two of them.

But I agree him & Melo are both very underrated. Billups has changed that whole team by himself.

i disagree...george karl really is a changed coach..the team is more committed to defense (thats all they preached in the summer) and melo is clearly a changed player and brought his olympic experience with him to denver...a long with the addition of a healthy and hungry nene and chris anderson who was 2nd in the league in block shots in 20 minutes behind dwight howard...it really is a full team effort i feel..of course chauncey still has A LOT to do with it with his leadership on and off the court and his championship pedigree
