3 PF's on one team, they should be headed to the ECF

Head-scratching decision by Brand, thought he wanted to join a contender. Hawks must've made him a lucrative offer.

....I think maybe Brand will play more 5?
....they needed a back-up for Al, they got one.

Elton Brand is more than capable of defending the Center position.

Really? I hadn't heard that, I thought being someone who could be serviceable to a team he might be worth more than 1.4

In ATL, he's no where close to contending and he is still a backup. He must be in it for the money. Elton Brand is so greedy, he already committed highway robbery with that contract from Philly. Now, he just wants more. I cannot stand guys like this.

Maybe that Philly contract that he never lived up to just wasn't enough

mostly in part due to a freak shoulder injury his first year here. his defense was top notch tho even as he aged

Well I thought he wanted a contender which almost all are over the cap and nobody was going to give him MLE at 34

Wow good deal by the Hawks. The Heat in my opinion could have benefited from this guy.
