    Mar 2, 2010, 2:18 PM EDT

  8. Kevin Martin's high praise for Aaron Brooks

    Mar 2, 2010, 12:16 PM EDT

    I’m honestly very, very happy for Kevin Martin and Aaron Brooks.

    Mar 2, 2010, 10:33 AM EDT

    Mar 2, 2010, 9:55 AM EDT

    The Philadelphia 76ers are like a box of chocolate, you never know what you are going to get. (Let me just apologize now for using a Forest Gump reference. That is nearly unforgivable.
