I have gotten into this with a clippers fan at their board in regard to this. I personally think its Bosh. When you consider age and his more complete game. What does everyone else think? I really want to know. I just want to get an unbiased perspective in regard to what the rest of the fans of the NBA believe. Please explain why after you vote.

Bosh. For the simple reason that he's young, and he is consistently expanding his game and getting better. Brand is also a very good player, but the injuries have plagued him (as well as Bosh) but to a greater extent.

Bosh because he is one of the hardest covers in the league because of his good jump shot, if you use a big guy he can take the long range shot and if you use a shorter guy he can power his way to the basket, no contest bosh is better

all i have to ask you people is : Do you guyz ever watch the clippers play on a regular Basis. Brand is a better defender, brand is a better post up player, a real good mid range shooter, a great shot blocker for his position, and he makes better decisions. Bosh only averaged 5 more points than him last season and that was because brand came back from a knee surgery and still put up 18 a game and all the other stats were pretty much the same, so now hes back to full health. Its okay though because every1 that isnt a clipper fan under rates the whole clipper team. but compare there stats from last season on the link i have and remember that brand hadnt played ball for about 7 months.

Very good debate..

Brand is a Power player, and Bosh is a finesse player.

I'm going with Bosh because of his athleticism, plain and simple. He has the ability to do more with the ball.

Can't really vote. Bosh needs a big man to allow him to develop. Brands needs to be healthy. So, as they stand right now, neither.

Forget about the age debate, Bosh is just better. Hes got an inside outside game, can d up, can handle the ball. He got the raptors in the playoffs Brand has only been 1 time in his whole career with a much better cast. Bosh will prolly be the best PF ever at the end of his career.

I'm sure Tim Duncan, Karl Malone, and Charles Barkley would all agree with you.:clap:

THERE in the east if you guyz remember when the clippers were healthy 2 years ago brand averaged 25 pts, and 10 rebs and that was when they were 1 win away from the western conference finals. Brand has just as good a shot from midrange if not better than bosh's. Brand has more post skills, he has more strenght, he has way better D, And he is just an overall better player, you people just never watch the clippers so you dont know.

Yeah, my point was just that there is a long list of people Bosh is behind.

did you guyz know that brand is 1 of 4 active players in the league to average 20 and 10 throughout there whole career so far. And drob33 did you know that karl malone, tim duncan, and charles barkely are also on the list of players of averaging 20 and 10 thru there whole career but Bosh Isnt........HAHA.... Brand is a future hall of famer.

Guyz, guyz, guyz.

I take Bosh solely because of youth, less injury-prone, and more complete game.

LMFAO! ah, no. brand is better and he has a much worse cast. al thornton is gonna be a great player very soon, so when brand comes back and plays with him they'll be dangerous. bosh is a decent player, brand gets overlooked cuz he's a clipper. brand is a top 3 PF when he's healthy, along with garnett and duncan. he is vastly underrated, and thats just further proven by your post.

so to answer the original question, i'd take brand.

Guyz, guyz, guyz.

the other two i'll go with, but hell no to the more complete game. this really is a stupid question, no offense to the guy who asked it, but brand is clearly a better player than bosh at this juncture. brand is just overlooked cuz he is a clipper.

I'd take Bosh. He's younger, more finesse and Brand is still coming out of an injury which could affect his game.

no it didnt effect him when he came back for 8 games

you made no points to support that Brand is better other than saying no.. Nice job!

*sigh*
once a player gets injured, they get underrated as hell.

Elton Brand is a way better rebounder, defender, and overall player.
Bosh is a better shooter, that's all.

but if you're talking age, Bosh is way younger, so probably more valuable.

I'd take Bosh, but only because he's what, 4-5 years younger?

If they were the same age, I'd take Brand.
