(Hopefully) good sports essays and observations for good sports by a guy who tries (and can sometimes fail) to be a good sport.

Thank You, 76ers!

Thank you, Doug Collins, for your masterful coaching.

Thank you, Elton Brand, for showing the heart of a lion.

Thank you, Andre Iguodala, for ignoring all of the comments that you're not a primary option on a good team and playing great.

Thanks, Jrue Holiday, for showing the poise of a veteran at the age of 20.

Thanks, Jodie Meeks, for your precision shooting.

Thanks, Lou Williams and Thaddeus Young, for being so good off the bench.

And thanks, Evan Turner, for trying (and sometimes succeeding) to show the doubters that you are a bona fide player.

You guys were so much fun to watch -- you looked like you liked playing with each other, respected each other, and responded well to your coach.

You reminded us what a fun game this is. You honored some rich traditions. You showed us (again) how much fun the game can be when it's played the way you play it.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.
