The Reason Brand Left (?)

Just speculation, but the pieces fit.

So the Paroxi-wife says to me, after a long day's blogging, "Oh, hey, that's interesting."

I murmur in response, hoping I'm not about to be bombarded with another factoid about the Bachelorette.

"No, seriously. Look at this."

Sigh... fine...

Oh. Wait.

So it turns out that Mr. and Mrs. Elton Brand are expecting their first child.

My ears perk up. I mention how the whole thing makes no sense. From that article on Celebrity Babies, Paroxi-wife finds the original article on It features this quote:

"There has been talk of a possible move east since last season because the former All-Star and his wife are expecting their first child in the fall. It would allow the couple to be closer to family."

So there you have it. That's all we got. And there are plenty of other reasons for him to take the Philly deal, the total overall money, the improved roster, the Clippers management jerking him around, but through all of it we've been confused.

This would make a whole hell of a lot of sense, and jives a lot more with his character.

What do you think?

Thanks to the Paroxi-wife for assistance with this article.
