In case you haven’t heard…

Our goal at Them’s Good Eaton has always tended more toward “analysis” than “up-to-the-minute updates,” as we try so intently to explain in our About TGE section. So when Ed Stefanski masterminded the free agent signing of Elton Brand for the Sixers, we set about thinking of some different kind of analysis we could give you on the move.

Truth.

We don’t usually deal in short posts, but when something someone else writes perfectly sums up our thoughts, we feel linking to it is better than rehashing the same points in our own words. Thus, please enjoy this commentary on the events that transpired at the WaMu Theatre last night, courtesy of The Knicks Blog.

Addendum: Ironically, it’s the same thing with our take on the Sixers’ draft.  Check out Depressed Fan for your Marreese Speights fix.

NBA Draft Preview: Philadelphia 76ers

While we don’t claim to be NBA gurus here at Them’s Good Eaton, we like to think we’re in tune enough with this Draft stuff to provide you with a preview. It won’t be anywhere near 10,000 words — though we do suggest reading that back and forth between Bill Simmons and Chad Ford, as it’s quite good — but hopefully we’ll scratch the surface and provide you with a few links to let you dig deeper should you desire.

Who will save us from our drought?

Umberger and Richards

Let’s play a little game called “Guess what I’ve been up to the last two weeks.” Here’s a couple of choices for you…

  1. Absolutely nothing
  2. Contemplating complex philosophical questions like the meaning of life
  3. Curling into the fetal position and crying myself to sleep every night because of law school exams
  4. Curling into the fetal position and crying myself to sleep every night because Philadelphia was celebrating 100 seasons of ineptitude

I guess #3 and #4 encapsulate it best. And then today, as I continued to cry and babble incoherently about Shawn Bradley, Joe Carter and Ronde Barber, I realized, “Hey, Kev, you’ve got a blog. You’ve got something to live for. Get up and write something.”

This is why we watch

Prince slowed down Iggy, but the Pistons couldn\'t stop the Sixers

Yeah the Pistons are more talented, more experienced, and on their home court. Yeah the Sixers — based on their roster — have absolutely no right to be where they are right now. Yeah every expert on God’s green earth picked the Pistons to roll in this series, and we’d have been hard-pressed to see it otherwise.

But isn’t that why we watch?

The Return of the King

A.I. and A.I.

Although we’re in the midst of a weekend hiatus from our PC Coaching Search posts, we figured there was no need to quit using movie titles to name our posts. (And yes, I know that technically LeBron is “The King,” but there’s no movie called “The Return of the Answer,” so deal with it).

We’ve been trying to let the Sixers ride out their current hot streak without posting (for fear of jinxing them), but as you may have heard, Allen Iverson stepped onto the floor at the Wachovia Center last night for the first time ever in an opposing uniform. And yes, that’s kind of a big deal.

Obligatory Knicks/Sixers post

We didn’t manage to catch the game tonight, but it looks like we didn’t miss much: a 124-84 win for the Sixers, with Willie Green (of all people) leading the good guys in scoring with 21. Good way for the Sixers to bounce back from a rough 16-point loss to the T’Wolves… via the transitive property then, the Knicks must live with the fact that the worst team in the NBA (other than Miami) is 56 points better than them.
