especially in the west where he doesn't play well against the best PF. He is a #'s no win type guy. His Crunch time buckets must be really low...he always dissapears.
At least Webber gets the Kings to where it counts. When he arrived in Washington they made the playoffs. When he arrived in Sacremento they made the playoffs. I don't know why everyone says he's overrated. He's better then Brand. He hasn't even been in a game where it matters. Wow Brand is the cornerstone of the Clippers, thats something to brag about. Say what you will about Webber but KG and Duncan don't step up in the end of a game. Most, if not all clutch players in the league are guards. They have the ball in their hands at the end of a game.Originally posted by LA-Drew
Brand put's up 20-10 a night, and he's overated??
He helped the Clipps improve and will continue to do so...
he probably never hit a game winner before, but his work throughout the game more than enough.
Wanna here overated - what about CWEBB???
Where is he when it counts???
where is he for the game winner???
where is he when Tyra Banks wants a little something-something??? Know what I mean?
Brand is the corner stone of the Clipp joint....
and the only player to get the max out of the Clipps.

Reason it seems like Brand fades out during stretches of the game, is because he's not fed the ball. And the reason for that, is because with a young team with capable scorers, other guys will be able to score. But if they just sat back and kept feeding the ball to Elton Brand, they could get as many points as they would like.
People counted him out, as if he was only getting 20-10, because he was on the Bulls. Said he couldn't get it done in the West, and now he's doing it..
And also, you have to account to the fact that he's a big reason why Michael Olowankandi improved his game play last season, because all the defensive attention in the post wasn't thrown his way.
Brand is a guy who might not be the funnest guy to watch play, hell some people might even say he's boring. But he is one of the most fundamentally sound big men in the league, and you know when he's out on the court, he's giving it his all. You can't say that about many players in the league.
So in my opinion he's definatley not overrated.

LMAO @ Having Kenyon Martin, Shareef Abdur-Rahim, Antoine Walker, Antonio McDyess, Elton Brand, and rasheed Wallace all ahead of the youngest player in NBA history Jermaine O'Neal.
