Turning Our Attention From the PGs to Brand

All the free agent PG drama is making my brain cave in. Baron opts out, Dubs offer Arenas the max, Baron signs with the Clippers, Arenas likely staying in D.C. Nothing but snooze this off-season. ↵
↵
↵Now that the point guards are out of the way -- a big deal, since PG is the new center -- the nation turns its eyes to Elton Brand. Durable as heck until last season, an instant difference-maker as a rebounder and low post presence, Brand can make some team very happy. Philly could use the oomph he'd bring to their speedy line-up, and a Baron/Elton duo would have some serious Tinseltown clout. ↵
↵
↵ ↵But for lord's sake, please let Elton Brand go to the Miami Heat. What, you say, they already have Shawn Marion, a high-flying board machine who does the little things, and Michael Beasley, an inventive scorer who works down? EXACTLY. A Beasley/Brand/Marion front court dominate the East on sheer talent and physical gifts. Imagine the rookie charging toward the basket, with one vet on each side. It would be like a big man fast break, or a painting about the Bible. ↵
↵
↵Most importantly, though, it would become a great source of joy and stress-relieving therapy for all us fans. Like that plastic cow udder you squeeze in dark times. What a bizarre, impractical, and crazy combination it would be; just typing those three names together, in any order, makes me giggle out loud. Go ahead, try it, and be free.↵
