    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.


    Farnsworth: You mustn't interfere with the past! Don't do anything that affects anything. Unless it turns out you were supposed to do it. In which case, for the love of God don't not do it!
    Fry: Got it.
    Farnsworth: If for example you were to kill your grandfather, you'd cease to exist.
    Fry: (gasps) But existing is basically all I do.
