CLIP REEL: NBA FREE AGENCY
"I kinda like cheesesteaks, sure."
Baron Davis has opted out! Elton Brand has opted out! The free agency period of summer 2008 isn't as exciting as it will be in a few years—The LeBron Sweepstakes—but it's got enough big names that could theoretically move to be an intriguing element of the July sports scene. Here now, we take a look at the men, their skills and their options.
So, Elton Brand is pretty good.
We did a video with him once.
Elton plays fantasy basketball.
And he does some cool NIKE commercials.
A lot of people think they lack the money to truly get it done, but the 76ers are interested in Brand.
Will the Warriors go after him?
Iggy was once poised to the next big AI in Philly, because he's super good.
He's a filthy athlete, honestly.
We ran a feature on him once.
Some people think he's going to bolt the City of Brotherly Love.
Emeka Okafor is pretty good too.
Exhibit B of the above.
This seems like the type of guy who Larry Brown could get a ton out of.
We honestly think the Bobcats could make the playoffs in two years.
Could Emeka end up on the Jazz? Odd.
We don't see him leaving, but opinions differ on the Interwebs.
