It’s hard to find a superstar athlete in today’s society who is both humble and gracious, but Elton Brand is a member of that elite group. A native of Peekskill, New York (the same hometown as New York governor George Pataki), Elton Brand first made waves as a member of the Duke Blue Devils. When he decided to leave Duke after an incredible sophomore season, the Chicago Bulls made him the #1 pick of the 1999 NBA Draft. He made an immediate impact in the Windy City and was named the NBA’s Rookie of the Year in 2000. In somewhat of a surprising trade, Elton Brand was shipped to the Los Angeles Clippers, where he has turned one of the worst franchises in NBA history into a contender. The power forward led the Clippers to the playoffs in 2005-06, their first playoff appearance in nearly 10 years, and they surprised many observers by crushing the Denver Nuggets in the first round and taking the Phoenix Suns to seven games in the second round before losing. A two-time NBA All-Star, Elton Brand seems to get better every year, and that’s bad news for the rest of the NBA.
