“He’s made me look like I knew what I was doing. But I don’t think anybody can anticipate a guy having those type of cojones. I mean, this guy is just a cold-blooded player.”
—Pistons president of basketball operations Joe Dumars

—Former Colorado head coach Ricardo Patton

“He’s as gifted a guard as I’ve ever recruited.”
—North Carolina coach Roy Williams

“Chauncey’s influence helps to keep me going. It’s how he dedicated himself to what he wanted in life and how he’s accomplished it that’s been important to me.”
—Childhood friend Anthony Farmer

“He’s spoiled. All of my children are spoiled, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. He still needs me. That’s kind of nice.’
—Faye Billups

“Chauncey brings something different than most point guards. He’s willing to put this team on his shoulders and he’s pulled us out of some tough situations. Anybody who cares that much about the game and his teammates, and is willing to step up and take shots like that, I definitely want him on my team.”
—Former teammate Ben Wallace

“He’s at the head of the table, and he determines how people eat.”
—Celtics All-Star Kevin Garnett

—All-Star Jason Richardson

“Chauncey's career is a lot like mine. I think I might have been a couple more places than him, but he's still been through a lot. A lot of people told him he couldn't do certain things.”
—Coaching legend Larry Brown

“Chauncey is a guy who scores, but he also distributes and knows how to run a team very well.”
—All-Star Deron Williams

“He came in and was receptive to everything that was going on, stayed late to learn the plays, did all the extra stuff. It shows the type of person he is and the type of player he is.”
—Former teammate Kenyon Martin
