Biography:

Very few players can say they want the ball in their hands seconds before the buzzer runs out nor do coaches feel comfortable enough to risk players taking the last second shot when the situation develops. But, former NBA star and sports speaker Chauncey Billups, otherwise known as “The Big Shot” or “Smooth”, proved that the greater the pressure and the bigger the game, the more calmer and focused he became.

Basketball has always been in his blood. From an early age, Chauncey knew that in order to follow his dreams and become an NBA star, he had to work hard to get what he wanted. Not only did he achieve his goal, but he also received numerous accolades during his basketball career that are Hall-of-Fame worthy.

The highlight of Chauncey’s career was ultimately winning the 2004 NBA Finals MVP as well as leading the Detroit Pistons to the NBA title. He won the 2008-09 NBA Sportsmanship Award and was selected to play for the USA Senior National Team that went undefeated in the 2000 FIBA Americas Championship. He was also chosen to play on the NBA All-Star Team five times and is one of five players to appear in seven-straight NBA conference finals.  In addition to his honors, Chauncey has been featured on the cover of several magazines including Denver, ESPN, and SLAM.

Chauncey has been a respected NBA figure for quite some time and viewed as having a future career as an NBA front-office executive and TV analyst.  Since his recent retirement, he is considering some television opportunities, but until then he stays actively involved in the Denver community. In 2009, he established the Chauncey Billups Foundation to raise money for programs aimed at families with low incomes. He also is associated with The Children’s Center, served as the celebrity host of the twenty-fourth Annual Celebrity Golf Classic, and assisted the NBA Commissioner David Stern in the unveiling of the Piston’s sixth Reading and Learning Center. He teamed up with Antonio McDyess to distribute food to underprivileged families during Thanksgiving in 2007, is involved with the Billups Leadership Academy and is the owner of several Wendy’s fast-food franchises alongside former NBA player Junior Bridgeman.

Whatever Chauncey’s future has in store for him, he is always going to give it his best shot. Because of his dedication, determination and willingness to give to the community, it is safe to say he will be successful at anything he does.
