Chauncey Billups wins Dumars Trophy; McDyess finishes third | Freep.com | Detroit Free Press
man levels of irony here, how rich. the irony that most strikes me is that cb would never have won the award (let alone the divisional thing) if Joe D HADN'T traded him. But not only was the mere fact of the trade free publicity for CB, but he also got to play the role of stabilizing eminence grise to the wacky nuggets, thus heightening (if not exaggerating) the impression of CB as sportsman; an impression further highlighted by the contrast with AI's b.s. at the end of the season.
If I believed in this sort of thing, I'd be tempted to say that the league was "punishing" Joe D for the trade.
McDyess should have won it just for sacrificing that money to comeback to play for the Pistons. What a [strike]fool[/strike] good sport!!
I expect Billups to come in top 5 in the MVP race too.
