NBA veteran Elton Brand made a very brief appearance in the opening game of the Eastern Conference championship after DeMarre Carroll left the game with a knee injury.

Brand came in the game just long enough to go one-for-two from the line filling in for Carroll before immediately fouling Cavaliers center Tristan Thompson and returning to the bench.

The 15-year veteran has appeared in just 36 games for the Hawks this season and only three in the playoffs, so it is no surprise that many basketball fans were surprised to see the power forward is still in the league.
