Even on the bad terms that (F)Elton left, I still have a soft heart for him. Even more so now, in the sunset of his career. The guy was the ultimate "nice guy" and only followed advice of his crappy agent. Kaman? How can you not love the goofy looking, gun-loving, firework-exploding guy!? I truly believe, Kaman and EJ were deeply hurt when they were traded to NO. Probably, because neither had experience a move being made strictly for business reasons. Both guys were key to that run the team had in 2006. One 3 pt shot away from the WCF (poor Daniel Ewing). Thanks for those moments fellas!

Welcome back!
