Chauncey Billups' Wife: "I'm NOT moving to Memphis." 

From the Detroit News: "Piper Billups' ears perked up when the chatter at the nail salon turned to her husband, Pistons player Chauncey Billups.

"One woman announced Billups was leaving Detroit to sign with Milwaukee. Another brought up Los Angeles and Memphis, which piqued Piper Billups' interest.

"'Hmmm, I never heard that,' Piper Billups laughed, while recounting the scene. 'I was sitting up there thinking, Did you hear it from me? I am not moving to Memphis.'"

The story goes on to detail the Pistons' efforts to retain Billups. It does not explain why Piper Billups thinks Detroit is so swell, compared to Memphis. She just might need to get out more.
