Jamie Samuelsen's blog: Pistons should retire Billups' No. 1 jersey

We all have our causes in sports, ones that we believe in more strongly than we should. Ones that we believe in even though the odds are stacked against us. Some causes are noble. Some are just plain stupid.

After a stellar career, an NBA Finals MVP trophy with the Detroit Pistons, and two stints with his hometown Denver Nuggets (including a trip to the Western Conference Finals), Billups came to his decision rather suddenly. As he told Yahoo Sports: "It's just time. I know when it's time. My mind and my desire is still strong. I just can't ignore the fact that I haven't been healthy for three years.
