Wow, I had no idea that there was a Reed-Frazier rift. And at the time Cleveland was today's Atlanta.

I heard that his nickname "Clyde" was from the movie "Bonnie and Clyde" which came out at the time Frazier was at his pimpin' peak.

Though i live in New Jersey i am originally from Detroit and a lifelong Pistons fan. Chauncey is my favorite player in the entire league. I love how he leads on and off the court. When the Pistons lost in the ECF these past three yeas, i was crest fallen. To think that Chauncey wouldn't be a Piston in 2008 is unimaginable.

I think of how he went through such a trying time early in his career and how Joe Dumars convinced him to believe in himself again; told him he would be a leader, an AllStar and realize his dreams. Well he did all of that and more; fullfilling everything that Joe saw in him. I recall how it was Joe's first priority to resign him. Billups made it clear to his agent that no other team would be in play; Detroit was where he wanted to end his carreer. Now to say that he's on the trading block after playing the best he could while being hurt is unsettling. Had he not been hurt, it just may have been the Pistons in the Finals.

Don't get me wrong, i love this young guy Rodney Stuckey, he is tenacious and is definetly the Pistons point guard of the future but Chauncey is the face of the Pistons. We lost one leader in Ben Wallace; now possibly Chauncey too! We Detroiters love him. I tried searching the web on why Walt Frazier was traded to Cleveland because i saw similarities. Lo and behold i found your piece on Clyde and Mr. Big Shot. All i can say is i'm hoping and praying that Chauncey doesn't get traded. If he does i won't go so far as to say that Detroit will no longer be my favorite team but, i'll now have two favorite teams. I have not felt this way about a player since Earl "The Pearl" Monroe was traded from Balitmore to the Knicks. The only difference is, the Knicks became my favorite team after the "Pearl" trade.
