Brand, Sixers Take Out #1 Seed Bulls

While we're sorry to see Luol Deng and Carlos Boozer lose, it is nice to see Elton Brand and Doug Collins, who has become a member of the Duke family in many ways, advance in the NBA playoffs.

A #8 seed knocking off a #1 doesn't happen very often, although the Bulls are playing without Derrick Rose, out with a knee injury.

This sets up a series with the Celtics, and if you follow basketball, we don't have to remind you of the many great series between these teams dating back to the '60s.
