Is Elton Brand's return enough to push the Sixers to the top of the East? Honestly that was the caption for this image on NBA.com. Who comes up with this dribble. I know it’s had to fill space in the off-season, but Pleez!
Elton Brand still has to be a question mark in anyone’s mind. He was a question mark coming into last season and the best grade you can give ‘em for last season is an incomplete. So KG is hardly losing any sleep over EB.
The homer that I am is still hoping for the best for the 30 year old player this coming season. The offense will be new to everyone this year. So everyone will need to “fit in” to Eddie J’s system this year. Come to think of it … the Sixers are not just getting a “new” offense this year. They may just finally “have” an offense.
So EB is optimistic, but is he really ready to play ball?
In a Sixers.com interview Brand was asked; What’s been your favorite part of Philly so far, you got a favorite cheesesteak place or anything? The answer was the patented “passionate fans” reply that seems to work for any sport. I heard it from new Phillies pitcher Cliff Lee recently.
But he doesn’t have a fav cheesesteak shack yet? Whazzup up wit dat EB?
