ONeal...they are 2 different players. ONeal fits better and can play the cetner.

I think they're similar, down to their health issues.

O'neal is more of a Center, but Brand plays more like a Center(at least offensively) so I dont know

seriously? i'd take brand any friggin day of the week.
elton brand was injured last year, but he's far from injury prone. he even came back from injury last year and immediately played some good games.
brand is still very much a 20-10 player with good defense.

JO is more likely to get injured (as history has shown), and even if he stays healthy, he won't put up numbers like brand.
defensively... JO is slightly better. but i'll take the sure thing brand.

i don't care if brand can't play C. JO is not a true C too.
brand and bosh can work together because brand is more of a post up player than JO. just because he's shorter by 2 to 3 inch doesn't not make him less capable. heck, before we traded for JO, people were putting bargnani as our starting center.

i'm not hating on JO, i'm happy we got him, but brand is just a much better player, and apparently cheaper too.
there's a reason we got JO for a package surrounding Ford. i'm sure BC contacted clippers for brand too (his value was low), but his value wasn't low enough.

Brand anyday.

He was playing like an MVP two seasons ago. He just got offered a huge contract because he's worth it. He probably has one of the best basketball IQ's for a big man. He is in his prime right now.

Hopefully JO bounces back. I'm not going to say he is going downhill yet, but I don't think he'll ever be as good as he was.

O'Neal, Bosh-Brand down low is just two PF's. I'd rather have Brand normally but in our situation O'Neal.

Brand is the better player, so I would take him. I have more confidence in Brand being able to bounce back than I do of JO.

Brand is a double double player who is undersized..O'neal got the size to play center because Bosh wont be playing the 5

Two years ago, I'd say Brand without a doubt. Now, coming off a ruptured achilles, I'd take O'neal. Brands injury is so damn brutal. So in other words, If both were 100% healthy I'd take Brand-he's a MVP candidate when healthy but his injury would scare me off offering him a big contract.
