I can't believe they really just sent him away for a future 2nd rounder. I guess that's Denver's way of officially throwing in the towel.

You cant put full blame on him for Nuggets defensive woes. No one ever rotates, the lanes are wide open constantly. I will admit, yes he is overrated defensively, but you cant stop dribble penetration all by yourself

you're backwards.

denver's problem isn't interior defense its perimeter d. camby is like a top 3 defensive big man you're just being ignorant.

This is a good move for Clippers. Elton's rebounds and blocks won't be missed anymore now that Camby is on the team.

he cant man the paint? by himself no, w/ kaman easily. both of them can help off each other, mainly camby of corse. hes a help defender, notta man defender. in denver he was their best big, hes not sposed to be in that situation. now w/ la he hes behind kaman and the guy behind him isnt injury prone and not bad at wat hes sposed to do.

cambys a good compliment to a dominant big man. kamans not dominant but keeps improvin. hes good enough.

Nah, not putting the whole blame but generally, great defensive centers/anchors do a great job of protecting the rim. That's what Camby's dubbed to be, I mean being the DPOY and all. However, he's far from it and doesn't impact the game nearly as much as an elite anchor should. Look at guys like Duncan and Garnett. Never will their teams be bad on defense, not just because of other factors but them. Ditto for the prime Ben Wallace. Ditto for insert any elite defensive center/shotblocker. Camby just isn't that guy. All stats. Completely overrated. Nuggets were awful on D, each facet of it.

he's not being ignorant. camby needs another big guy to take up space and bang inside so he can roam around for blocks. he was pure stats in denver.

My friend Brian who works for the Clippers is pretty pissed that Elton Brand sneakfully left , but he says they have alot of money and this is only the first of decent moves.
