    Philly comes to town struggling to find consistency with newly acquired Elton Brand. Picked as a possible top 4 seed in the EC (during the preseason) the 76ers are looking to find that hunger they developed at the conclusion of last season.

    Ok we can 't let his replacement to go off. You know how our defense tend to allow scrubs to turn in all star performances.

    Yep, especially the ones who nearly pulled off the upset in the playoffs last year. Can the Pistons make Reggie Evans an all-star?

    We would probably do better with Brand. IIRC, Max owns him.

    I can hear it now...

    "Come on Kwame, you've got to catch the ball"

    "Oh yeah, you try and catch his passes"


    Good old Sheed...
    Rasheed Wallace was proudly wearing his powder blue North Carolina Tar Heels Nike sneakers at practice, honoring his team's rout over Michigan State Wednesday. He had a little something for former Spartan Greg Kelser to hear at practice, as well. "I don't know why they had to come all the way up here for practice," Wallace said, with Kelser sitting nearby. "They could have just stayed in Chapel Hill to practice."

    When we played Clippers, Max was great at defending Brand; really took him out of the game. That one game he started, he was fantastic. I don't remember how much he put up offensively against him, but i remember him being a beast to the point where Dunleavy said something to the effect of he'd rather not have whatever starter we had out b/c Max was the best player ever! LOL

    Brand's been playing well, and being double teamed very often down low.

    The only problem is that everyone else besides T. Young is playing awful. Andre Miller is jacking up tons of shots (where he was playing much more efficient last year), and Iguodala still can't shoot wide open J's.

    The Pistons are very egalitarian.

    Why do you think they get so many hugs before and after games?

    It's not about winning, it's about the love man.

    lol

    If this team ever wanted to stray away from basketball they could get into the motivational business for sure.

    They could get people raises in their jobs, cure impotence, encourage Olympic athletes to establish new world records, you name it.

    All they'd have to do is view their clients as "the other team" and start working against them. It would be golden. :winner_first_h4h:

    I don't remember that game but I wouldn't go as far as to say Max owns him. We are talking about a career 20 - 10 guy!

    IMO Elton Brand is so overrated, but i think i'm alone in that opinion.

    Oh, so that sxplains the "Max owns him" statement, you don't like EB. I don't think you can be a 20/10 career guy and be overated.

    Dude has been very consistent. He also avg close to 3 blocks a game too. I don't see how you can say he is overated.

    Max did own him. It doesn't matter whether i like him or not.

    Simple, he's not winner and he doesn't make his teammates better.
