Chauncey Billups '05
Read Before Buying!
Written by Miamicanes39
When I saw this cards stats, I had to pick him up based on his shooting and defending. When I entered the game however, I found this card almost unusable. His release might be the slowest in the game, and even if you get space, the defender will come back by the time the ball is our of his hands. His lack of a drink hinders him going to the basket, having trouble finishing over larger defenders.
Bought for: 23,000
- Playmaking- As PG's should have, Billuos makes accurate passes and can get the ball there fast. His dribbling animations are subpart at best, and the ankle breaker badge only helps so much.
-3pt shooting-If you can figureout his terrible, slow release then he'll make shots. When open he will always hit because of the attributes.
-Defense- Billups athleticism and defending stats and badges make him a very good defender. You can easily stay in front of your man. Off balling is effective as well.
Athleticism- He is very fast with and without the ball.
Weaknesses: Release- As I said previously, Billups probably has the worst release in the game and it's very hard to learn. Greens are almost impossible and you have to create an absurd amount of space to get off a clean shot.
Inside Scoring- Billups struggles to score inside because his small size and lack of dunking ability. He will finish some layups, but is wildly inconsistent.
Rebounding- Of course
Recommended Strategy: Catch and Shoot, Try to create spavery, and pick and rolls.
Use if: "You want an defending playmaker"
Don't use if: "You need to score inside and pull up in people's faces.
Bottom Line: Decent value for building up your team.
