Chauncey Billups wins Teammate of the Year, but who would you give it to?

Harry How

Chauncey Billups has been honored as the NBA's best teammate. Who do you think is the best teammate on the Dallas Mavericks?

The inagural Twyman-Stokes Teammate award was handed out today, to Clippers guard Chauncey Billups. The award, which recognizes "the ideal teammate", was decided like so:

The winner was chosen from a vote of NBA players. Ballots featured 12 nominees, six from each conference selected by a panel of NBA Legends according to selfless play, on- and off-court leadership as a mentor and role model to other NBA players and his commitment and dedication to his team.

Of those 12 nominees, no current Maverick was included, though former Mavs Jason Kidd and Jerry Stackhouse were on the ballot.

If you are interested in reading about the history of the award, I encourage you to do just that, here and here. It's quite inspiring.

Who do you think is the best teammate on the Mavericks? As the award defines it, the best teammate is someone who his selfless, a leader on the court and role model off it.
