On Embiid, Sixers serve up word salad with a side of confusion

The 76ers invited media members to lunch in Center City on Wednesday, and there were certain topics that general manager Bryan Colangelo and coach Brett Brown were happy to discuss in detail and at length. There was Brown's optimism about the coming season, given the measure of talent at his disposal. There was Ben Simmons' clandestine workouts at the Sixers' practice facility in Camden, where, according to Colangelo, he is "dominating the gym," which is hardly surprising, given the gym's lack of foot speed. There was the professionalism that J.J. Redick will bring, the Labrador-puppy enthusiasm of T.J. McConnell, a level of competitiveness that, both Colangelo and Brown insisted, they had never seen before among a collection of teammates.
