Chauncey Billups

We’d love to see Mr. Big Shot as a player morph into Coach Calling the Shots on an NBA team’s bench. Few handled pressure-cooker moments better than Chauncey Billups. At 37, Billups's days of being a go-to player or even key contributor seem long gone. Noticing how the point guard has been serving as a player-coach mentor the past several years anyway, the time for Billups to coach may just be now. (Photo: Streeter Lecka/Getty Images)
