Default What is wrong with Elton Brand?

Philly fans, please no Brand haters only unbiased people who will tell it like it is. Why can't Brand do anything? 9 ppg for this guy who you paid 80 million for and who is 20 ppg for his career? First month last year when he said he was playing at "50%" on one leg he was doing 17 ppg 10 rpg which wasnt too bad, then he has the summer to heal up from everything and says hes 100% and comes out with 9 ppg 5 rpg? wtf? Does he just suck? Or does he not fit the system? If he doesn't fit the system why would EJ design his system not to work for his highest paid players strengths? Why does he not play in the 4th quarters? You have to play 2 bigs right... Speights is probably your best, and why not EB next to him? Instead it's Dalembert or Jason Smith wtf.

What is going on with EB42 in a nutshell... I saw this guy today v. Utah he looked pretty good honestly, finished 2 nice and1's hit a nice mid range J but wasn't on the floor much for some reason. I also believe he had a and1 dunk showing athletic ability they say he was robbed of.

Talk to me Philly people.

he is a under sized power forward who cant beat other pfs with a speed advantage he also has a limited number of post moves and he is only good when the offense is based around him the princeton offense just doesnt fix him at all.

so that begs the question, why pay this guy 80 million and not use his skills at all?

With all due respect, itís not the offence, its Brand not fitting in this system. Just look at Frye for example his doing really well in Arizona right now, because he fits within the system. While in LA, Brand played a half court slow paced game. He was able to shoot the 15 to 18 footer that made him an elite player in the league. Unfortunately for PHI, that is the extent of his range and thatís why his not getting it done right now. His knees are done. He can not run thatís the bottom line. The sad thing is now Sammy is our main big man along with Jason Smith.

he just relized he made a whole bunch of money over the past years and decided why not to start living it up and playing basketball as a second option now. He will come back to basketball as a fulltime job after most his money is gone
