Nuggets' Chauncey Billups a Tebow fan

Chauncey Billups, of the Denver Nuggets, is now a Tebow fan and is just the latest in a chorus of fellow athletes and pundits impressed not only with Tebow's passion as a player but like him and want him in his city for his good character as well.

Chauncey Billups — No. 1 in your program and the No. 1 Broncos fan — admitted to being "surprised" at the orange- and-blue's pick of quarterback Tim Tebow, but he's on board with the selection, particularly from a character standpoint.

Billups, one of the best leaders in sports and a player of high character, took a moment to talk about why selecting a solid person is just as important as ability.

"I think that definitely should get some consideration, when you talk about the character of a person," Billups said. "The one thing we all know is he's a winner. He's a winner, and he has the guts to go compete. And that right there deserves a lot of consideration as well. So everything else is just working and developing the right skill set that can make you great. But he has all of the other things in place. It's just we're going to have to see if he's ready to get on that field.

"I was a little surprised, but that's why I'm not in football. They know more than I know."
