PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Elton Brand does not lead the Sixers in scoring or rebounding. He did not make the All-Star team this year (though he has played well). He does not jump the highest or run the fastest. Today however, one would imagine he has bragging rights in the team’s locker room.

Cosmopolitan magazine asked its readers who they think the ‘hot’ players in the NBA are, and Brand is on the list.

“This hot power forward practices Bikram yoga when he isn’t dominating on the court.

The list of 30 players also includes Derrick Rose, Danilo Gallinari, and Kevin Durant. You can see the rest of the list here.

The Sixers and Bulls are currently tied at one game apiece in their first round playoff series. The next game is in Philadelphia on Friday night.

Be sure to refrain from filing this one in the “hard hitting,” news department, but I couldn’t help myself.
