(Article from 'Another Son of Mike Smith' from Clipsnation.com)

Note: Elton wrote this on Clipperblog and I thought it was too good to leave buried in the comments section. Enjoy.

Elton Brand 42 Said,

Dear Clipper Nation,

It’s me, Elton. Some of you may remember me, and some of you may just be pretending not to remember me. Whatever the case may be, I just want you guys to know that I’m sorry.

I know I had a verbal agreement with Coach Dunleavy to sign the contract, but I am an East Coast boy at heart. I wanted to be closer to my family. I also love Philly Cheesesteaks. And the 76ers uniforms are the same exact colors as the Clipper uniforms, so I thought it wouldn’t be much of a difference to move to Philadelphia.

I’ve been watching a lot of Clipper games this season. I want you to know that I’m sorry, and that I want to come back to Los Angeles. I want to be a part of this phenomenon. I want to help put the finishing touches on something which I helped to create.

Don’t get me wrong. We (the 76ers) are playing extremely well right now. I love Coach Collins and I love my teammates. We are a sure-shot playoff team as currently constructed. But let’s be honest. We are never going to win a championship.

I think this Clippers team is capable of winning multiple championships. And when it happens, I want my jersey number to be retired at Staples Center. I think it’s only right. I think I deserve it.

I become a free agent after next season, and I would love to come back and play for the Clippers. I’ll even play for free, no strings attached. I think I’d be the perfect back up to both Blake and Deandre.

Like I said, I’m sorry about what happened in the past. But let’s move on from that. I miss Clipper Nation. And I think you guys miss me, too. Please forgive me. I think we could make things work.



P.S. Philly Cheesesteaks are overrated.

YEs, obviously not Elton Brand because 1- this would be all over ESPN and there would be a huge deal made about this. 2 if it is, he should have stuck with the team through thick and thin and not screwed us. He thinks he deserves his jersey # retired for us? And its only right? WTF kinda d!ckface does this guy think he is? HE'd get shot before he entered the door at Staples. And PS Elton, Philly Cheesesteaks are not overrated but I guess they sorta are if thats why you left us, is for a god damn sandwich.

another waste of thread... they just keep popping up.... "ClipThemOff" why would you even post this? (I hpe you knew it was fake/you wrote as a joke) Either way. what a waste of thread space. I guess after 2+ years in this forum and @ 21 years old, you still need attention.
