Good morning, Sixers fans.
After the Sixers lost to the Toronto Raptors at home, Elton Brand decided to put the entire league on notice and make a huge, blockbuster trade (see story). The Sixers have made it clear that they're all in this season and NBA Twitter, those that were awake, went wild.
Here are some of the best reactions:

Shouts to Tobias Harris, who is 26, has somehow been in the league for 14 years, and has played for 17 teams (all of which have regretted trading him immediately).— Andrew Joe Potter (@AndrewJoePotter) February 6, 2019
elton brand became the sixers gm less than 5 months ago and has already trarded for jimmy butler and tobias harris— Drew Corrigan (@Dcorrigan50) February 6, 2019
Turns out, Harris also likes making game-winning triples in Charlotte, like his new teammate, Jimmy Butler.
Embiid - Simmons - Harris - Butler - Redick is arguably the best five-man lineup in the Eastern Conference, and with so much size and versatility, it'd be a load for the Warriors to handle in a potential NBA Finals series. The Sixers are really going for it.— Kevin O'Connor (@KevinOConnorNBA) February 6, 2019
the sixers have 4 top 30 players in or entering their prime and a Boban
