    Looks like Brand opting out was not to help the Clipper, but to help himself.

    NBA front-office sources told ESPN.com on Tuesday that Brand has informed the Sixers that he will accept a five-year deal worth an estimated $82 million and spurn what was presumed to be a slam-dunk return to the Los Angeles Clippers to hook up with Clipper-to-be Baron Davis.

    If I was Baron Davis and the Clippers... I'd be pissed.

    Baron could have had a conversation with Elton and that they'll become the one-two punch for the Clips. Then for Elton to turn his back on the Clippers.. ouch.

    Elton Brand is a class act though, he has to have a good reason. Plus, Elton is screwing himself over in being the first Clipper to get his jersey up in the rafters.

    While it seems like most of you are allergic to the "like" button, I just want to personally say thanks for looking anyway.

    His good reason is a ****load of money and not having to play for the Clippers.

    Maggette has reached a verbal agreement with the Warriors. Can the Clippers fold? Why do they even bother?

    According to espn the Clippers had a $75 Million offer on the table, and were going to try and let go of a few other contracts to bring it close to $81 million.

    After everything Brand said to the tune of "opting out to help the clippers put a better team around him", seems pretty about-face.

    He obviously must've felt he'll have a better chance at winning in the eastern conference. And they're the "clippers"

    Pretty shocking.

    Makes you wonder if these Clipper "fans" would show up to Staples the night Philly comes to town just to give Elton Brand some hell.

    Aside from that, the seats for the Clippers will be more empty than the Kings.

    absolutely. it will be a hot ticket. If I was a Clipper fan I sure would want to be there to boo the hell out of him.
    (I might go anyway just for fun)

    In other news, courtesy of Mike Heisler from the LA Times:
    Donald Sterling can't be blamed for Elton Brand's departure - Los Angeles Times

    Technically, Brand took a bigger offer from the 76ers, $82 million to the Clippers' $75 million. However, with Sterling giving his basketball people a blank check, the Clippers were going to dump enough players to get to $81 million. That offer was never relayed to Brand. The Clippers say at the end, agent David Falk stopped returning their calls. Whether the imperious Falk, who once represented Michael Jordan, did this for revenge or just because it felt good is a mystery. He did once vow to get the Clippers for not taking his client, Mike Bibby, with the No. 1 pick in the 1998 draft."
