Arizona Daily Sun-Stick figure Bradley rides off quietly LOL, The Shaun Bradley Era in Philadelphia was the end of innocense for me with regard to basketball. It was like the discovery that there is no Santa Claus. It became clear to me that me beloved team had no clue about basketball (at the time), that it was more about money than winning, that being over 7' tall was a skill in the NBA, but did not a franchise make. But I still love Christmas as do I basketball.
It has been 13 years since the Sixers tried to sell the lie that was Shaun Bradley. It's not his fault. He is what he is (stiff). Now he is about to retire, but I remember what it was like when I still believed.
