Bill Plaschke Begs Elton Brand To Stay A Clipper Via Youtube

Monday, July 07, 2008

Bill Plaschke really wants Elton Brand to stay in L.A. and for some reason he decided to make a creepy Youtube video to get his attention. From Fanhouse via SLAM....



This is close to the oddest Youtube video I've ever seen and in a medium that has Kige Ramsey you know that's saying a lot. I'm not sure but I think it's pretty unprecedented for a city's columnist to openly call out a player when he's trying to sign a contract.

Oh and Elton, you don't owe crap to the Clippers. Do what you want to do.

If I was Elton Brand, I would be creeped out to have a video, on Youtube, directed at you.

I wish he at least picked a better background. The black background just didn't help the viewer make anyone comfortable at all.

It looks like one of those PR clips from NBC - "The More You Know"

oh, so waiting eight years and then building a "championship" team around Brand should entice him to stay? Gotcha.

Bill Plaschke makes Carrot Top look like a deep thinker and Maureen Dowd look like a great writer.

Plaschke is the only guy who can make Mariotti tolerable for about 5 seconds.

Wow, hopefully Brand leaves L.A. now, just so he could stick it up Plaschke's buttocks.

In a perfect world, Brand would become a Sixer (hey, we need all the help we can get).

Jfein, I totally concur we in Philly need all the help we can get. That being said, Brand is not that help. His downside is much larger than his upside and even Drew Carey would say the "Price Is (Not) Right." If, IF he's healthy, he still isn't the fit for the team Josh Smith would be...I would back the Wachovia Bank up to Smith's front door and roll the dice on a young, freakish talent like him before a fairly older player coming off such a serious injury. And, I would also love to see Plaschke's reaction if he remained in L.A.

Well, it looks like Elton Brand is a 76er. He may not be the best fit for the team but at least he is somebody decent who can potentially elevate the Sixers into a potential contender.

I can't wait to see Plaschke's reaction now that he left. And I'm sure that Elton Brand isn't the first person to ever leave a team and a city that embraced him...

Plaschke - consider yourself pwned.

And Brand embraced by LA? It seemed more like the Clip joint was ignored by LA.

I'd like to think that Brand left strictly because of Plaschke.

Nothing will top the Elton Brand video for a while, but Plaschke continues to live up to - even surpass - the hype. He's now calling Chris Duhon New York's answer to Steve Nash :

Any word on whether Bill Plaschke will make Awful Announcing's Hall of Shame?

I'm sorry guys, but this video was on latimes.com, and was posted on youtube.com by outside sources.

in response to:
Ray Allen + Kevin Garnett = Baron Davis???

Bill was just saying that Baron Davis rounded out an offense that included Elton Brand, just like Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett were key additions to a Paul Pierce offense.

you guys are complete tools. you have no skills, so you crap on people who do. And while you're at it, get your facts straight. Thanks.
