13. Chauncey Billups
While Chauncey Billups may not have been considered an All Star by the NBA masses, there are many insiders who would disagree.

With surprisingly little fanfare, Billups would become a five time All Star (in consecutive fashion) but far more importantly would be the MVP in the shocking Detroit Pistons victory in 2004, an accolade that can’t be ignored and one that could propel him into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

The Guard would finish his career with a 18.8 PER, a very good mark that puts him in the Hall of Fame discussion.

Should he be inducted into Springfield?

We suspect that there are many fans in Detroit who think so!

This guy was a game changer. In his prime he was as good as Ray Allen maybe better, he fizzled out, but man he would change a 15 point deficit into a 3 point lead like it was a 9-5 job.
