Default Elton Brand raised his game bigtime last season

How much better can EB get?

What skill can he improve upon, if anything?

Elton Brand is the model Power Forward. He's got bulk, but not too much bulk that it weight him down. He's quick. He can bang inside. He blocks shots, rebounds, he can run the floor, his basketball IQ is high, he doesn't dissapear in the 4th quarter(anymore). And he has a deadeye midrange jump shot. He finally has playoff experience so he now knows what it takes to contend for a championship. He finally knows how to take over games.

One thing I see him doing this summer is extending his range. He is dead eye from out to 15-17 feet, but can you imagine if he extends his shooting range to 20 feet? Just a couple of steps infront of the 3 point line. If he starts hitting those every time he's open, he would be unstoppable because Elton does a great job putting the ball on the floor. If someone like Shaq tries to smother him from 20 feet, Elton would easily be able to go by him. It woul free up space for cutters.

Thumbs up Defense

Post and man-man defense is the area I see him improving along
with ball handling. These are areas where he can reach the next
level. EB is a clean version of Karl Malone and destined for 1st team all NBA next year.
