1979 – Happy 34th birthday to Dallas Mavericks power forward Elton Brand who is in his 14th NBA season. His age seems to be showing this season, as he is averaging fewer than 10 points per game for a season for the first time in his career. However, his block percentage and offensive rebounding percentage along with his player efficiency rating are all in the top 50 all-time.
