Philly, Post-Brand

by February 06, 2009

It’s not exactly the end of the world: “It could be that, in the long run, additional minutes for Speights, Young and – with Iguodala playing small forward almost exclusively – Williams will pay off when Brand does finally return. If Brand comes back fully healthy next season and with some of his old mobility back as well, that added maturity for the kids will allow them to complement the power forward’s play rather than merely contrast with it. Everything might still work out for the Sixers in the Elton Brand era, which, after all, still has four seasons left to go.”
