Isiah On Hand To Honor Billups

Posted by 1s1ah

Feb. 10th – Isiah Thomas was among the many Pistons luminaries at The Palace of Auburn Hills on hand to honor Chauncey Billups as the Pistons made his the tenth number to be sent to the Palace rafters.

Zeke was amongst those giving speeches to Mr. Big Shot.   Isiah -who had his #11 retired by the Pistons on Feb. 2nd, 1996- spoke about how Chauncey’s jersey going to the rafters helped add to the tradition of the Detroit Pistons, something he said the team had none of when he was drafted in 1981.  And, as the Detroit Free Press noted, the Piston faithful in attendance gave “The Captain” of the Bad Boys an appropriate welcoming:

A who’s who of Pistons greats gathered on the court to honor Billups, including Isiah Thomas, who received a deafening ovation.
