Default So when do the 'trade Elton Brand' rumors start?

...and more importantly where's the love for Chris Kaman? 17 points/16.5 boards/2 blocks over 4 games, along with 50% shooting and 87% from the free throw line? The kid is a fantasy beast without Brand in his way.

If the Clippers start 15-2, people will start making whispers about them trading Brand away since they won't need him...but they won't go 15-2. lol

The Clips have played great, but let's not be silly here. Sam Cassel isn't going to score 35 points very often, he was just on fire yesterday. The team is playing well and other teams still have to scout the new system they play with all the running.

Scouting on video throughout the season is pretty key..thats why you can't let these early games fool you.

I hope the Clips go 82-0 though, but they aren't a better team without Brand. Remember, this team was one bonehead defensive assisgnment away from the WESTERN CONFERENCE FINALS just a year and a half ago...they are more capable when healthy.

If Kaman is ready to be a 18/12 type of player then trading Brand makes sense

This is just like that time C-Webb got hurt, and the Kings seemed to play better without him, as Peja, Vlade, Miller, and Bibby all stepped it up, and some people were clamoring for Webber to be traded, and then he was traded, and the Kings went on to win a championship without him.

Kaman's gotten plenty of love on this board, and deservedly so. Bout time he played up to his potential.

Still, seeing Kaman breaking out thusly makes me think of Chris Wilcox. Didn't he also show brief flashes of brilliance while stuck behind EB, and then bust out once he was in Seattle and out of Brand's shadow?

Just for the sake of argument, isn't there a case to be made that maybe Elton Brand's style of play brings down certain teammates as opposed to making guys better?

Kaman has had games of 18 and 18. 18 and 20 a few times in the past. You are really really reaching if you think Elton Brand makes Kaman play worse. Kaman took all of last season off...everybody knows it...he knows it.
