SIXERS FORWARD Elton Brand spends his summers at his home in the Los Angeles area. He calls it his "vacation spot," though he rarely allows himself to kick back and chill. Brand, who will be 33 in March, knows that the end of his NBA future is like an oncoming wave at the beach - it can't be stopped. He does his best each summer to stall the inevitable - riding his bike for endless hours and miles, swimming lap after lap after lap in the pool and working on his basketball game at a local gym. He wants to squeeze as many seasons as he can out of his body, and that is why the potential of losing this season to a lockout is so bothersome.

The good news for Andrew Bynum and the 76ers is that he incorporated full-speed sprints into his workouts. The bad news is that he was in pain. Bynum spent Saturday and Sunday working out harder than he has at any point during his recovery from bone bruises to both knees and cartilage damage in his left knee. "I got a lot of pain so we backed down a little today," Bynum said. Pain has always accompanied Bynum, who has ramped up his workouts in recent weeks. But on Monday he acknowledged that the pain might be the type that he will simply have to endure if he is going to return.

Eagles quarterback Michael Vick told reporters last week that he is planning to have an organized workout or two with his wide receivers, tight ends, and running backs, possibly as soon as this week. "This time, we can do it our way," Vick said. Well, there is a way to organize a workout, and then there is Mark Sanchez's way, and Vick would be wise to follow Sanchez's blueprint. It is, after all, the gold standard, and as we all know the Eagles are the NFL's gold standard, so nothing less should do. Sanchez recently held a five-day passing camp with 14 of his New York Jets teammates in Southern California, where the quarterback lives in the offseason.

Despite being the subject of trade rumors, Asante Samuel was at the NovaCare Complex for the first day of the Eagles' offseason workout program on Monday. Also in attendance was running back LeSean McCoy, who could be a potential training camp holdout if the Eagles don't extend his rookie contract. Samuel typically spends most of his offseason working out in South Florida. He has skipped a number of the nonmandatory sessions during his previous four seasons with the Eagles. So his presence came as a bit of a surprise.

Q: Should I exercise for 60 minutes consecutively, or can I get the same results from three 20-minute workouts in a day? - Debra Lee A: Ideally, it would be best to prioritize an hour for your workout and get it done. However, if there's just no other way to do it then, sure, break it up into three sessions or whatever configuration works for you. The good news is the benefits of exercise are cumulative. Bottom line? Just do it!

THOUGH NERLENS NOEL participated only about 45 minutes during the first day of the Sixers' Orlando Summer League minicamp yesterday, he did enough to leave an impression on some of his teammates. Hollis Thompson wanted to test the young defender once during practice and got a rude awakening. Thompson went to leap for a dunk and Noel sent it across the practice gym. Despite being away from playing for a year, it seems as if the No. 6 pick of the 2013 NBA draft is going into Orlando with a full head of steam.

YESTERDAY afternoon, hours before Kyle Kendrick's 89-mph sinker kick-started a four-game series between the Phillies and Braves, Cliff Lee pitched to Tony Gwynn Jr., Cesar Hernandez and Ronny Cedeno. Simulating two innings of play, the Phillies' lefthander threw 20 pitches - both fastballs and breaking balls - took a seat and then tossed 20 more. Afterward, Lee offered a positive review of the session, signifying more progress in his recovery from the elbow strain in his pitching arm that landed him on the disabled list on May 20. This was his first time facing live hitters.

The 76ers apologized to reporters and gave them bottled water and donuts Tuesday, but not access to prospective draft pick Andrew Wiggins. For the second straight day, the 6-foot-8 swingman showed up at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, worked out for the team with the No. 3 pick in the June 26 draft, and left without talking to the media gathered outside the practice facility. Just like Monday, the only glimpse of the former Kansas standout came when he exited the back of the building.

Kansas guard Andrew Wiggins arrived in Philadelphia on Sunday and is expected to work out for the 76ers this week. "I'm excited," Wiggins told Comcast SportsNet at Philadelphia International Airport. Wiggins said he believes the Sixers "fit my style, but I also think Cleveland and Milwaukee do, too. " Wiggins is likely to be one of the top three selections in the June 26 NBA draft. The Sixers have the third and 10th overall picks. The Sixers have auditioned several prospects, but none of the expected top three in the draft: Wiggins, Duke's Jabari Parker, and Kansas' Joel Embiid.

There were times during the season when none of this seemed real to Brian O'Keefe. That all changed - forever - in the last week. That's when O'Keefe, a 6-foot-1, 205-pound junior catcher for St. Joseph's, came under the close scrutiny of scouts, coaches, and front-office types in a series of workouts for executives with the Yankees, Phillies, Mets, Pirates, and Nationals. "They conducted the workouts right there in the ballparks," said O'Keefe, projected by some to go in the middle rounds of the draft, which begins Thursday.

The music now seems like ambient noise, the hurried pace is normal, and only one quarterback is taking snaps with the first-team offense. It isn't even noteworthy anymore when an Eagles player gulps down a post-practice smoothie. Coach Chip Kelly said his second spring in Philadelphia already is "light-years" ahead of his first, and the structure of this week's practices during organized team activities was familiar to more than half of the roster. At last spring's OTAs, each day included the insertion of something new to the offense or defense.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Two pitchers once projected to be in the top three spots of the Phillies' rotation had their schedules bumped back yesterday. Cole Hamels, who entered camp behind schedule after battling biceps soreness in November, had his bullpen day moved from yesterday to today. Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez, originally on tap to make his Phils debut tomorrow in Dunedin, was pushed back to Saturday after missing camp Monday with an illness. The rookie was back in camp yesterday.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Larry Bowa is one of the best fielding infielders in Phillies history. With a tireless work ethic, Bowa made himself into a five-time All-Star, a two-time Gold Glove winner and a shortstop who led the National League in fielding percentage in six seasons. Bowa was stationed at shortstop late yesterday afternoon on the infield practice field at the Carpenter Complex. But instead of a glove, the former manager and current bench coach and infield drill sergeant was wielding a fungo bat. Bowa blasted short hops - and other ground balls that simulated low throws - at first base, where Ryan Howard and Darin Ruf were on the receiving end. Howard was getting the brunt of the work, with four or five repetitions to every one or two for Ruf. "I thought he was looking good," Bowa said afterward of Howard, who has been criticized for his fielding.
