76ers F Brand says players will stick together
Question of the Day
When the Atlanta Hawks were sold earlier this month, new owner Alex Meruelo had to fight back tears as he talked about what it means to be the NBA’s first Hispanic team owner.
Harris, oddly, has decided to refrain from publicly talking about the Sixers and his plans for a franchise that hasn’t won a championship since 1983. Brand said the team won’t be the same without chairman Ed Snider around.
“We’re definitely going to miss him,” Brand said, “and all he’s done for the organization over the years.”
For a player who might temporarily be out of a job this fall, Brand has kept busy.
He and Dallas center Brendan Haywood participated in a youth camp in St. Maarten. Brand and his production company, Milk and Media, are reading scripts and greenlighting projects. Brand spent about 10 days in Louisiana earlier this summer _ “getting eaten up by insects” _ overseeing the psychological thriller, “No One Lives,” starring Luke Evans.
Backed by WWE and Pathe Films, Brand watched the dailies, oversaw script changes, and made sure shooting stayed true to the vision of the project. Brand’s next passion project is a film about hip hop artist and actor Tupac Shakur.
And of course, he’s been playing pickup games with other NBA players around Los Angeles.
But he’s antsy for the real deal to start.
“The one thing I’d want to get out there is for the fans to know we appreciate their support,” he said. “We’re doing all we can as players to try and make this thing right so we can have a season.”
