In a complete outside of the box move, the Philadelphia 76ers hired Elton Brand to be their next general manager on Tuesday.

The hiring process was a long one. The reaction of the people on Twitter shows that this was a move that essentially nobody saw coming.


Though, some people were willing to take some positives from this.

There’s always that.

Brand is completely unproven as an NBA executive. He might be great, but he might be terrible. If he falls into the latter category, NBA Twitter will be more entertaining than usual.
