Well, this is certainly unexpected. Elton Brand doesn’t strike us as the type of player to rock anything that would make our nightly recaps. Then again, we haven’t expected anything out of Elton Brand after he left Baron Davis hanging in Los Angeles to sign with the Philadelphia 76ers a few years back (not that Clipper fans are bitter because things are better now, but that was a little cold-blooded). But here we are and Brand is now in Atlanta after a stint in Dallas last season and a horrible stay in Philly. Last night against the Indiana Pacers, Brand was rocking the Nike Air Foamposite One “Sport Royal”, a highly divisive colorway that dropped earlier this year.
