NBA Obsessed takes you into the hit and run game of NBA Basketball.

Marcus Camby screams “All right, it is the Clippers!”

You lose an Elton Brand and what do you do?

Marcus Camby, you go get a Marcus Camby. He may not score like Elton, but he rebounds and blocks shots like mad!

Camby led the NBA in blocked shots with 3.61 per game last season, only the second player in league history to do so in three straight seasons.

He averaged 9.1 points and 13.1 rebounds playing a career-best 34.9 minutes per game for the Nuggets. Camby was the league’s defensive player of the year in 2006-07.


The Clippers had to do something with Corey Maggette leaving and only Baron Davis coming in.

So it must be pretty obvious how Camby fits in.

Camby will be counted on to help replace the 20 points and 10 rebounds that Brand has averaged from the power forward spot in his nine-year career. Camby will join center Chris Kaman, who had by far his best season, but was limited to 56 games by several injuries.

“I love this acquisition for the current makeup of our team,” Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy said. “We are getting a consummate pro who is maybe the best team defender in the league and who has 60 playoff games under his belt.”

As always, any NBA Basketball related comments are welcome.
