Default 06 Elton Brand would be the best big man today

way better than peak Blake too. The only one on his level is Davis

3rd GOAT Clipper behind CP and Mcadoo

he averaged 25/10/3/3/1 on 53%. Carried Clips to 47 wins in a stupid stacked conference and nearly to WCF. Game 7 against Suns and he avged 31/10/4/3 on 59% against Suns

06 Elton Brand is one of the most underrated players. He was pretty much just as good in 07, too, but just shot less. He was actually more efficient that year, but scored less because he shot less. That peak year of his in 2006 is up there with any other PF's, though. He was also a complete player. Wasn't just the Clippers best offensive player, but also their best defensive player. Saying he was better than Blake is like saying water is wet. Blake has always been useless defensively. Not only that, but he is notorious for his disappearing acts in the 4th quarter. CP3 made that bum look much better than he actually was.

He wasnt better than peak KG, Dirk or Timmy but he was better than any other PF of the past 20 years for sure

I never said he was better than them peakwise, but he was on that same tier in 06.

Well, duh.

And no, he's #2 on the Clippers mountain just behind Bobby Mac. Isn't even an argument.

one year wonder as 24/10, everything else <20/10 and his peak was short


poor mans Kevin Love who caught empty stats on a continual Clippers lotto team


His 6'8, 290lb body was sluggish up and down the court, would get eaten alive in todays pace


todays comparison = Millsap

No argument over Embiid whatsoever. He was better than Jokic though hands down.

no he isnt

2012-17 CP>>>2002-07 Brand

its not even an argument WTF u smoking. He was hurt in 08 so no point including that. CP was an All NBA top tier player every year with LAC. Elton at his best was at that level but he had some mediocre years in his Clipper years too. Years where they were a sub 30 win team. A team with a prime CP is never gonna win anywhere that low

As I've said before...the trolling on this board is just pathetic. It's just sad to troll 24/7, but when you aren't even good at it and you continue to do it? You should just kill yourself as you clearly have no reason to live.
