The Detroit Pistons raised Chauncey Billups’s jersey to the rafters on Wednesday night as the team retired his No. 1 jersey.

The Pistons retired Ben Walace’s number last month in a win against the Golden State Warriors. 

Billups played eight seasons with the Pistons throughout his career. He was on back-to-back Eastern Conference Championship teams with Wallace and was named the NBA Finals MVP in 2004. In that five-game series against Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers, Billups averaged 21.0 points, 3.2 rebounds and 5.2 assists.
