The City of Brotherly Brand

News Item: 76ers sign Elton Brand to five-year deal

A cynic would say, "gee, a big name and former #1 overall pick, with a huge contract, who's coming off major surgery- sounds like Chris Webber!" Good thing the Philly sports community doesn't have many cynics. Oh wait...

But seriously, I like this move for Philly. Brand provides an inside presence, and also gives the team a post-Iverson identity. And, as a Wolves fan, I appreciate the free first-round pick that made it all possible.
