Most NBA players refer to the league as "the game."

Pistons center Ben Wallace frequently refers to it as "the business," and one need look no further than former Pistons guard Chauncey Billups as prime example as to why Wallace uses those words.

The Knicks used the amnesty clause on Billups, months after trading for him in the Carmelo Anthony deal. Now, Billups is playing with the Clippers.

"It's tough to see things like that happen to one of your brothers," Wallace said. "I feel like I go through it as he goes through it."
