Traveling Teenage Pickup Basketball Circus Does Smart Thing


The Philadelphia 76ers, a traveling teenage pickup basketball circus, signed 36-year-old veteran NBA player and all-around good guy Elton Brand, Brand announced Monday via SI’s The Cauldron. 

This one comes as a surprise, because the old white guys in suits that run that franchise usually do really stupid things, like purposely suck for three year stretches, then draft rookie of the year players, then trade them when they don’t morph into the next Dr. J in time.

Brand will presumably be wheeled out to mentor all those young’ns who travel the country punching out hecklers at shitty clubs.

Good move, 76ers. To celebrate, here is my favorite Elton Brand highlight tape.
