Check out this great story on Elton Brand opting out of his contract.
And here is the part to pay attention to before they change it:
The Los Angeles Times reported earlier in the day that Brand’s teammate, Corey Maggette, filed the paperwork to opt out of his deal.
Brand played in only eight games last season because of a knee injury. In nine seasons with the Bulls and Clippers, Brand has averaged 20.3 points and 10.2 rebounds per game.
A knee injury? Really? You sure it wasn’t a RUPTURED ACHILLES TENDON????
Sloppy reporting and just plain moronic. And I don’t care when they correct it because it should never have made it out of the editing room.
