    Brand is damaged goods. He was when Philly signed him and then the damage got worse. Want no part of that.

    Brand is to old and costs to much money.

    Both excellent points.

    I've always liked Brand. I even advocated trading Ben Wallace for Brand after the Championship was won, but Joe seems to be trending towards building a team around 23 year old Rodney Stuckey. He appears to want to construct a team that will be complementing Rodney when he is in the prime of his career.

    If that is the case, Brand is not the answer.

    Well if your answer is a struggling 23 year old undecided fit on this ball club, then there are no answers.

    The issue at hand is what Joe's answer is. Yours and mine are as irrelevant as the temperature in the Palace locker room.

    Pretty critical of a 23 year old who showed the ability to drop 40 last year. The talent and potential are there, no need to knock the kid before he has a chance to develop.

    I'm a 76ers fan and I would be glad if Brand will be traded,but I don't think it will happen.I think Brand can play at the same leval as he was in Clippers,but he must be healthy.Eddie Jordan knows how to use players like Brand.

    Listen guys - We are not going to get a premier Center for Jason Maxiel and Kwame Brown. That's not going to happen.

    Chandler missed a lot of games last year due to injury. The two previous season he avg around 12 RPG and was one of the best offensive rebounders in the league.

    Question is do you want to tie up around 12 mil a year for the next 2 years with him? Guess that would only hurt us this year since Maxiel and Kwame will soak up 9 mil.

    If Chandler stays healthy then it will be an improvement so why not. If he does stay non-injured then he will try every game and not this inconsistent stuff that we will get from Maxiel.

    Why not?
    Lakers have got Gasol for Brown (yes, yes - our Brown!), Crittenton (who is it?) and two draft picks. I think, Gasol is a player of a higher caliber than Chandler.

    Remember how Dumars got Sheed?

    Stuff like such happens but do not count on it.


    OFFTOPIC: that was a damn good tennis in Wimbledon.

    Some of those mid-season trades can be lopsided. Like when we traded for Sheed. But they do not happen very often. When they do you have to take advantage but you can't wait and count on them happening every year.

    If thats what some of you are expecting - Dumars to fleece some team then I can understand the frustration.

    But the reality is that you can't expect there to be an all-star center out there for your bench players , just you can't expect the ROY with the 15th pick.

    Not so critical toward the kid, but the unrealistic expectation on potential development.

    Did JD actually think that he helped his development with Curry and the team circus that developed last year? Booby nearly dropped 40 on us in the playoffs and where is he?

    Kwame Brown..rated the "best high school player" in his class..2001 McDonald's All-American...Example when potential is not reached...
    It's nice to have potential, especially when it comes at the 15th pick....

    Not a great idea to build a team around potential...

    I agree, it doesn't happen very often. But it does happen. There are always some circumstances that should be taken into account - Chandler is an allstar, but he may be exposed to injuries.
    Bryant was chosen by 13th pick, Nash - 15th, Stockton - 16th, Dumars - 18th.

    Lets not forget that the Lakers also gave up 2 1st round picks for Gasol. If things had went south then those could have been pretty good picks.

    Kwame is a better matchup for the bigs in the East (Howard, Perkins, Shaq)... Pretty sure Chandler would blow a tire trying to deny against this type of size.
    IMO Plan A is Okafor... plan B is Kaman... C= Chandler.
