Biography

The two-time All-Star Elton Brand plays the power forward position, despite being only 6 ft 8 in tall and thus usually giving up two inches and more to his direct opponent. However, Brand has established himself as one of the top big wingmen of the NBA, averaging 20.3 points, 10.4 rebounds (with a stellar 4.0 offensive boards) and 2.00 blocks in his career.

Brand makes up for his lack of size like another undersized power forward Charles Barkley, using his wide and thick body, and surprising athleticism for a man his weight in order to out-muscle his opponents. His large wing span also allows Brand to be a proficient shot-blocker.

In his first years in the league, he had a few, but effective and powerful moves underneath the basket which already made him an effective post player. It was not until the beginning of the 2005-06 season when Brand became one of the best power forwards of the NBA. During the offseason prior to the 2005-06 season, he trimmed his weight from 265 lb. down to 254 lb. in order to increase his quickness. He also worked on adding more finesse moves underneath the basket so that he could score without having to utilize power all the time. But most importantly, he worked on his shooting range and developed a dependable 18 ft. jumper. As a result, he raised his scoring by 4.7 points in that season.
