The big news in the NBA today is that Allen Iverson has been traded to Detroit for Chauncey Billups, Antonio McDyess, and young center Cheikh Samb.

Not that I pretend to know dick about the NBA, but it looks like the Nuggets wanted a purer point guard to feed Carmelo Anthony and J.R. Smith, which they’ll get in Denver native Billups.  The Pistons, meanwhile, get the roster shake-up that team president Joe Dumars promised after last season’s playoff loss, plus the added benefit of $20M in cap space when Iverson’s contract ends in the spring.

See, this is why I hate talking about breaking news like trades and coaches getting fired (or stepping down like Phil Fulmer).  I end up talking about actual sports instead of calling people gay or gossiping about arrest records.  However, in a related story, the name “Chauncey” is pretty gay.
