  • Brand brings much-needed toughness to Mavs

    Fox Sports Southwest "Elton Brand started in Dirk Nowitzki's place as the Mavericks wrapped up their European Vacation earlier this week.

  • Brand's old school Chevy finally back in gear?

    CSN Philly "Elton Brand is a large man by almost any standard. The Sixers' forward is 6-foot-9, 254 pounds. It's hard to make someone that big disappear. That's what happened during the first four games of the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Celtics. Without the benefit of smoke and mirrors,..." May 25

  • Brand will start despite struggles

    Courier-Post "It's no secret that Elton Brand has struggled in this series. But 76ers coach Doug Collins said he won't take the power forward out of the starting lineup.

  • Brand key in Sixers' huge win over Hawks

    CSN Philly "If Friday night's loss in Washington was the worst defeat of the season, then the 95-90 victory over the Atlanta Hawks at the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday night was the most needed win of the season. After all, another loss could have sent the season spiraling out of control at the worst..." April 01

  • Traditional role of NBA big man now a lost art

    CSN Philly "Elton Brand walked out of the Sixers' locker room following Friday night's 105-83 victory over the Golden State Warriors with a ping pong ball-sized welt on his forehead.

  • Brand, Sixers happy to be back at practice

    CSN Philly "The Sixers reconvened as a team on Monday in Detroit after having a four-day break, which had to feel like heaven during this grueling season.

  • Veteran Brand will be integral in second half

    CSN Philly "When Elton Brand says he's hurt, you take his word for it. After all, the things that make Brand say, "Ouch," are enough to incapacitate a mere mortal.

  • Brand's young son survives allergic reaction

    CSN Philly "Elton Brand had four points, nine rebounds and two steals in the win against the Suns on Wednesday.

December 31

  • Sixers' Brand ready to play more minutes

    CSN Philly "Last season was a particularly tough one for Elton Brand. No, he didn't perform poorly on the court, in fact, far from it.

  • Frontcourt duo's play not enough in loss

    Delaware Online "Elton Brand's first playoff double-double in almost five years helped the Sixers' frontcourt hold its own against the Heat -- at least from the offensive side.

  • Brand has been a good soldier for the Sixers

    Philly.com "FOLLOWING yesterday's practice at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, 76ers forward Elton Brand wore a huge bag of ice around the back of his left hand and a menacing scowl on his face.

  • After trying to sign Elton Brand (twice), the Heat try to stop him

"I thought about that coming down here." The Miami Heat went after Brand not..." April 18

  • Brand playing through 'minor fracture' in left hand

    Philly.com "The injury hits just keep coming for the 76ers, though this latest one actually occurred nearly a month ago.

  • Doug Collins: Brand's "hands are bashed up"

    Philly.com "Elton Brand suffered a dislocated right little finger on Feb. 27 at Cleveland. The 76ers forward later hurt his left hand as well, but he has not missed any games because of the injuries. Coach Doug Collins acknowledged after Sunday's 114-111 overtime loss to the Sacramento Kings that the..." March 28

  • Brand's work ethic epitomizes Collins' vision for Sixers

    Philly.com "More than wins and losses, what Doug Collins looked for from his team at the beginning of the season was growth. He wanted the Sixers to become better basketball players individually, then as a team. He wanted his players to believe in themselves, then each other. Once all that was established,..." March 21

  • Brand: "It was an 'OK' trip"

    Philly.com "Basically, the 76ers salvaged this road trip. With the way it began, it looked like a possibly disastrous five-game swing. Instead, the Sixers began playing good basketball, won two in a row over the Los Angeles Clippers and Sacramento Kings, and then came into tonight's game at the Rose Garden..." March 20

  • Brand plays on despite injury

    Philly.com "Elton Brand is getting used to playing with a splint on his dislocated right little finger, but that doesn't mean the 76ers forward likes the situation.

  • Brand OK with lineup change

    Courier-Post "Elton Brand came out with 5:57 left in the fourth quarter and didn't return for the rest of regulation, or for overtime in the 76ers' 125-117 win over Golden State on Sunday.

  • Brand insists finger is fine

    Philly.com "Even though he has dislocated his right pinkie finger in each of the last two games, Elton Brand insists that all is fine. Brand did concede there is some pain. Being out of the lineup would cause him more distress. When asked after Thursday's practice if it bothers his shooting, Brand said, "A..." March 04

  • Brand and Vick have shown resiliency, for different reasons, in ways Woods and Iverson haven't

    Philly.com "The bounce-back. It is a delicate, tricky thing, and elite athletes often find that it is much harder than it looks. Just take a look at Tiger Woods. Invincible one moment, then everything crashes. His car, his marriage, his reputation, his game, his confidence. It is tough to shove those..." February 15
