Here are some interesting quotes from Elton Brand after the Clipper-Hornet game:
"James Singleton, with his energy, was big tonight," Brand said. "Keeping balls alive, blocks shots, rebounding. When he gets minutes, he makes great use of them."
Sounds like Elton thinks the same way that we do; Singleton should play more because he does a good job when he's out there. He not only brings energy when the team needs it, but he does the little things that turn out to be big, like rebounding and playing defense. Hopefully, "Dumb-leavy" will read these wise words from Brand and play James more.
"We haven't had our team in eight or nine games,'' Brand said. "Now we have a team and we're building on our season.''
Hmmmm...so does this mean that the team has basically forgotten about Corey Maggette? Remember, he hasn't played the last couple games, yet Brand says that they have their team now that Cassell is back. Does anyone else think it's weird that Maggette was mentioned very little on the Clipper television broadcase the last two games? All they really said was that he was on the inactive list. I also thought it was funny (or sad) that Corey wasn't sitting behind the bench in those two games cheering the team on. I know when games are at home, sometimes inactive players stay in the training room and get treatment for their injuries. But you would think that if Maggette is the team guy that he says he is, he would stick with the team on the road and give them support from the bench. I don't know...maybe it's just me, but I'm thinking there may be more to this Maggette thing besides the foot injury that the Clippers are claiming. I still think that if the Kings keep playing poorly, the Maggette for Artest rumors are going to start back up again.
