The 76ers concluded practice Monday with an unusual drill, one that was less about structure and repetition than it was about the pure pleasure of being in the midst of a potentially singular basketball talent. Joel Embiid was the only player to participate, and because he was, it was natural, while watching the drill, to keep your eyes on everyone's feet.

Tue, 25 Oct 2016 00:37:39 GMT2016-10-25T00:37:39ZWhat else do the 76ers have? Most of the attention this preseason has gone to the Sixers' three big men and Dario Saric since Ben Simmons is sidelined for at least three months with a fractured right foot.
