November 25 Philadelphia Inquirer:
“As Elton Brand was being escorted from the Verizon Center court, the opponent he had just flagrantly fouled, Washington Wizards center JaVale McGee, lay on his stomach, watching Brand go.
From that position, a smiling McGee waved goodbye.
As it turns out, McGee was waving goodbye to Brand not just for the remainder of Tuesday’s game, but for Wednesday’s game against the Toronto Raptors as well.
Early Wednesday afternoon, the NBA announced that Brand would be suspended for one game without pay for his flagrant foul, penalty two, against McGee.
Brand served the one-game suspension Wednesday night.
“Just sort of another day on the 76ers right now,” coach Doug Collins said before Wednesday’s game. “He’s been playing so well for us, he’s been terrific all year long. We’re going to definitely miss him.””
