Yes to all of you common sports fans Chauncey Billups was a Boston Celtic. He was taken 3rd overall out of Colorado in the 1997 draft. This was the year the Celtics had the worst record in the league and held another lottery pick, it looked like Tim Duncan was headed to Boston. But those damn ping balls bounced the wrong way and the Celts got pics three and six. Duncan went one to the Spurs, the 76ers got Keith Van Horn(traded to New Jersey that day) and the Celtics took Billups. The ended up taking the legendary Kentucky Wildcat Ron Mercer at 6. Other notable picks that year was T-Mac at nine to Toront but other then Chauncey, Duncan and T-Mac there are no other starters from that 97 draft. In the middle of the 97-98 seasons the Celts sent Chauncey packing to Toronto, for the great Kenny Anderson. And we got to have this great clip for all eternity.
That never gets old.
