Steven Spielberg, the well-known director and Lakers' fan, may just have his new acting star right in front of him.
Hollywood is getting a great look at him during the Denver-Los Angeles Western Conference finals.
The lead actor: Chauncey Billups from the Denver Nuggets.
I'd love to give Spielberg some advice on what he should call this movie. Flopper? No, too nice of a title. Um, Clown Shoes? No, he doesn't stumble every play.
The Bully! Chauncey Billups reminds me of that kid when you were younger. Don't tell me you don't know this kid either. He's the one who plays the sweet and innocent child around parents, but once the parents vanish, so does his kindness.
There has been numerous accounts where Billups was untouched. Like the great actor he is, he flaps his arms up and down like Chris Anderson, I mean a bird and it's ridiculous.
I recall a layup late in Game Two where Billups missed a layup and was once again untouched and flared his arms in disgust to get a call.
Billups should tie his shoes tighter because every drive he makes to the basket is a stumble or two into a body and then a circus shot with two free throws awaiting him.
Spielberg's mouth is drooling over the opportunity to watch such a great actor live in his presence. Of course, he has directed movies with many great actors, but certainly not Mr. Big Shot.
When you take 30 game winners, three or four of them are bound to go in. No offense to bowlers or anything, but the NBA isn't bowling. Contact is going to happen, but don't exaggerate a slight bump into being apart of a tornado because frankly I don't buy it.
Unfortunately, the refs do, and that must change. Billups will pull-up and force his body into contact for free throws. Let's see what happens in Game Three. As for Spielberg, I'd contact Billups for a job ASAP.
