Former NBA player Chauncey Billups recently gave a talk to the football players at the Cleveland Browns facility in Berea to give them some inspiration for the remainder of their season. Although he kept his words limited and to a point, he definitely lifted the spirits of the team and even shared with them some stories from his NBA career. Overall, Billups’ main message was to just keep working hard and he did leave a lasting impression on the team, as they were thrilled to have the opportunity to hear from another athlete who might understand and be empathetic to their challenges and stress.
The 2004 NBA Champion attended and played for the University of Colorado before being drafted to the Boston Celtics in 1998. He spent nearly 17 years playing for a number of NBA teams, including doing a couple terms with the Denver Nuggets right in his home state. Billups is a five-time NBA All-Star and two-time gold medal champion of the FIBA tournaments in 2007 and 2010 where he played on the United States national team. The former point guard and shooting guard was also the winner of the NBA Shooting Stars and the J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award.
Billups recently stopped by to visit the members of the Cleveland Browns at their facility in Berea to give them a motivational speech and a pep talk. He was very well received and everyone was extremely excited that he could stop by.
