Father & All-Star, Elton Brand, Has Seen It All During His 15-Year Career

Elton Brand

It’s impossible not to picture the regal bearing of Elton Brand every time he drops another gem of knowledge on us. Whether it’s about the game, or about life in general, there aren’t many people — let alone professional athletes — who can offer up such poignant moments from their lives. During our conversation with the power forward last month, before he embarked on his 16th season in the NBA, we got a first-hand account of a career that’s spanned decades.

Stephen Curry

The Warriors are rocking right now after rattling off their seventh consecutive win against the Magic last night for the best start to a season in franchise history (12-2). Stephen Curry is one of the biggest reasons why and his first half against the Magic last night, where he was a perfect 5-for-5 from beyond the arc for 22 points, is reason No. 4,080 Curry is — as his coach noted already this season — the best point guard in the Association at turkey time this year.

With a little over two minutes remaining in the Bulls-Nuggets game in Denver last night, Danilo Gallinari was pinned along the far sideline with the shot clock running down.
