Baron Speaks on Elton

I thought this piece from the LA Times was really interesting.  Apparently, when Baron was asked about playing Elton this Friday, Baron simply responded: "I've got nothing to say to him." 

That's the first time I've read anything about Baron that indicated that he's upset with what Brand did.  Dillman further reports:

The mention of Brand quickly wiped away Davis' smile, especially because he just had been talking about Oklahoma City's Earl Watson, saying he regards Watson like "a brother."

Davis hasn't spoken to Brand, and said he doesn't plan to do so, because the former Clipper recruited Davis to come join him in Los Angeles and then Brand did a quick cut and run, heading East for a bigger bag of money, a five-year deal worth almost $80 million.

Keep an eye on Ramona's blog today.  She started an entry recounting some of what she knows about the Brand incident:

It's not clear if Elton began to turn against the Clippers at this point, or shortly afterwards. But I know from conversations with people close to him, and an interview I did with Maggette over the summer, that in retrospect, Elton has brought this issue up several times as a way the Clippers didn't show him respect, or go the extra mile for him. In other words, Washington took care of Arenas when he was coming off a knee injury, why wouldn't the Clippers do the same for him.

She's going to write part II later today.

I want this game so bad.  Baron and Dunleavy have got to want it bad.  I wish we were walking in there under better circumstances, but I'd love nothing better than for the team to finally pull it together to beat Philly. 

C'mon Clips, give us this one...
