I remember the day very vividly when I read an ESPN article saying that Philadelphia sent some scrub to another team for some 2nd round pick to clear up some cap space to sign Elton Brand. 2 days later, it was a reality. Mr. Brand had left the Clippers out in the cold and had chosen to leave us for another team.
That was the worst i'd ever felt as a Clippers fan. Worse than the day i saw Livingston's knee buckle and worse than the day Mr. Bell hit that 3-pointer over Ewing.
There is a sense of betrayal that oozes through your veins when a guy you poured your heart into just gets up and leaves. I know how bad i felt when Brand left us... and he was a borderline star.
James meant so much more to the people in Cleveland. I can only imagine what they're going through right now.
The question is... would you trade 7 years of GREAT fun and deep playoff runs for this terrible heartbreak today? Sign me up.
Tough day to be a Cavs fan.
