Via The700Level, Comcast Sports Net in Philadelphia checked in with old Sixer stars Allen Iverson and Charles Barkley on the Elton Brand acquisition. (Try not to get too distracted as A.I. bobs and weaves like Floyd Mayweather and Campbell Brown.)
Barkley's take is a popular one from the typically silent majority of NBA fans: players should make their own decisions. Unfortunately, the loudest insistence often comes from columnists shouting "greed!" and "disloyalty!" For all the caterwauling from Mike Dunleavy, this comes down to a decision made by a grown man. Brand chose Philadelphia for whatever reason was important to him, and Dunleavy's has little choice but to live with it.
