ESPN: Time is on Clips' side

2
"Billups has tried to put the long and unpredictable journey of the NBA season into perspective for his young teammates, pointing out that the greatest season of his NBA career, which ended with an NBA title and a Finals MVP, seemed far from a reality 30 games into the season. 'When I went to Detroit, it took a while,' Billups said. 'The year we won it all, we were 17-13 after our first 30 games and then we started to build and build and build. We had a new coach and we made the trade for [Rasheed Wallace].' 'We still didn't finish with the best record in the league,' he said. 'We finished with the sixth best record. That's a big deal, but is that everything? No. It's about how you're playing when the playoffs hit and if everyone's playing together on the court. If you're a good team, you can win anywhere.' "
