Brand New Place, Brand New Start

After signing with the Philadelphia 76ers as a free-agent this summer.  Elton Brand is ready to help repeat the success the young 76ers ended the season with,  that lead to a playoff birth.  
“Elton Brand’s face is plastered around Philadelphia, from print and Web ads to billboards to the side of busses where he smiles at drivers while they’re stuck in rush hour traffic.

It’s hard to travel around the city and not be struck by the welcoming image of the 76ers’ $80 million blockbuster free-agent acquisition.

Much like the ads, Brand and the Philadelphia 76ers won’t sneak up on the NBA this year.

“I think we did sneak up on some teams for a little stretch,” coach Maurice Cheeks said. “But at a certain point, they knew we were coming.”

The team that shook off an abysmal start last season thanks to a fun and fast-breaking style that propelled it into the postseason has a new roster, new star and new attitude. The Sixers expect to win.”
