Elton Brand Talks Achilles Trash


Clipper fans will want to take note of the quote, late in Elton Brand's conversation with ESPN's Sam Alipour, when he says that now he knows what it feels like to be old. But for the rest of us, the highlight has to be the trash talk:

Alipour: I was speaking to The Rock recently, who tore his Achilles on his movie "The Game Plan," and he said, "There's no pain like the Achilles pain." Sound right?

Brand: Naw, it's not that bad.

Alipour: Are you saying The Rock is a sissy?

Brand: Yeah, kind of (Laughs). I thought The Rock was a tough guy, but if he says that's the worst pain, I don't know.
