I've seen him play in person, I was left in awe. He's really, really fucking good.

I root for all "Philly" kids to succeed, but I hate having to root for Duke... so to answer your question, yes I am mad.
2622170, He's a good one. Tall. Can shoot. Skillful.

I like his all around game more than Ingram and Tatum.
2692927, Well... I was wrong.

2622176, I hope Dook fans don't give him the Elton Brand treatment

They getting flamed if they write him another letter like this one:


From: Taylor, Jennifer

To: Brand, Elton

Subject: Leaving Duke

I graduated from Duke last May and just wanted to express my disgust for your decision to leave the Duke program after only two years. As an alum, not only do I hold the school in high regard, but the basketball program as well, especially since both have deservedly garnered such a great deal of respect for their accomplishments.

As part of our basketball program, you represent Duke as a whole. We are first and foremost an academic school, you clearly did not belong at Duke in the first place if this was the extent of your commitment to Duke and a college education in general. You have not only insulted the current students who are putting in four years at a school they love, but also the thousands of alumni who have realized the value of a Duke education and what an honor and privilege it was to be there for four years.

If you do not realize the opportunity you has infront of you to play for Coach K and at the same time attain a Duke diploma, then that is certainly your loss. I just wish that you has spared us the notion that you were continuing in the tradition of being a Duke student-athlete, in emphasizing excellence in both academics and athletics. You will not be considered part of the Duke family, in my mind as well as many others. You have by no means proved yourself worthy of that title.

2622178, Elton's reply was great

2622185, You can find tweets like that from all fanbases every offseason.

To this day, you'll see the occasional angry tweet from Duke/UK/KU/whatever fans saying "you should stay in school!" for a variety of selfish and misguided reasons. It's second only to the fans who wish ill onto kids when they choose other schools to attend. It's all idiocy. Has been since the dawn of time.

Even Duke fans at the time thought that email was snooty and out of touch. Luckily, Brand still has a great relationship with K and the university, and dumbass "fans" like that woman didn't fuck that up.
2622186, I fight that fight every visit to a message board

Grown men call kids that transfer "quitters".
2692919, a lot of mock drafts have us taking him if we don't trade the pick...
Posted by ThaTruth, Wed Apr-10-19 11:29 AM
he didn't impress me in the tournament but he was supposedly hurt...

he was recently seen at a Laker game with Rich Paul...
2692924, He wasnt a very good college basketball player

Poor shooter who shoots too much and turns it over too much.

Potential is there but has a long ways to go offensively.

2692926, Barrett or Reddish?
