Video: Elton Brand Might Not Get Invited Back to Steve Nash’s Showdown Soccer Event

Elton Brand is not good at soccer. Which is good, since he plays professional basketball.

Elton Brand has always been known for having soft hands on the basketball court. His feet though? Like the tires of an Old School Chevy.

That’s not entirely true and/or make any sense at all, but it’s our lede none the less for this video of EB playing at Steve Nash’s Showdown soccer event on Wednesday night on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Watch as Elton totally whiffs on a sweet setup after some sick footwork from Ivorian footballer Salomon Kalou.

Elton was one of many NBA stars to participate alongside some of futbol’s best in a pickup style 8-a-side game that benefited children everywhere. Brand’s ability to slam home an alley oop was not exactly what the soccer types would call first class.

Oh, and he DRILLED Mike Dunleavy Jr. in the face. Watch:
