Maybe slightly off topic, but nonetheless interesting. AI almost joined the clippers this summer and now he is unconditionally determined to make the Grizzlies a winning team. It was also interesting to hear his take on leadership (perhaps an afterthought of Billups success with his former team). It kind of makes you think what he would be saying if he joined the Clippers. On that note, I'm glad he didn't because it appears that he is most definitely planning to start this season.
