Seventeen year NBA veteran Chauncey Billups has decided to retire.  Billups had recently worked out with the Cleveland Cavaliers but indicated to  Yahoo! that it was time. 


"It's just time. I know when it's time," Billups said. "My mind and my desire is still strong. I just can't ignore the fact that I haven't been healthy for three years. I can try again and get to a point where I think I can go, but I just can't sustain. Me not being able to play the way that I can play, that's when you kind of know it's that time.
"It's just time. I'm happy, excited. The game was very, very good to me. I felt like I was equally as good to the game the way I played it and the way I respected it and the way I carried myself through the process."
