When the Sixers first got Brand he was labeled all sorts of things, when the only thing wrong with him was that he was hurt. Eddie Jordan actually pushed him to the 2nd team. Stefanski was highly critcized for this move, but now that the team is successful, no one is talking about Elton.
I thought he would be the most loved Sixer by now. He shows up every night, he plays hurt doesn't complain and acts like a complete Professional. He is an East Coaster, and the Sixers are very fortunate to have him. He's made to play out of position and guards people bigger than he without making excuses or backing down.
No one even talks about him during the game chats. I don't get it, the only thing that Brand doesn't do is open his mouth, but he is clearly a leader on the floor and sets a great example with his work ethic and effort.
Elton is becoming my favorite Sixer for a lot of reasons. I'd rather see a post about him than another one about Evan Turner. Maybe some of you posters might stop sniffing his jock for a minute to talk about a real player, and the Sixers most solid performer.
