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!

When famous athletes talk about living life "in the fishbowl," a pre-draft workout for the 76ers at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine serves as a fitting setting for their self-metaphor. The basketball court that the Sixers have practiced on for more than 15 years is on the first floor of the college's student-activity center. On the center's second floor - a lounge area with billiards and Ping-Pong tables - is a wall's worth of large curtained windows where media members often gather.

The 76ers' predraft workout process is about to get (even more) interesting. The team is scheduled to work out Brandon Ingram on Monday after weeks of looking at mostly projected late-second-round picks and free agents. The former Duke swingman will most likely be the only draft prospect at the workout. That's not uncommon for potential top picks. The Sixers will decide between Ingram and Ben Simmons for the first overall pick in the June 23 NBA draft. However, they have yet to secure a workout with Simmons.

The final day of offseason workouts is anticipated by NFL players - it's akin to the last day of school before summer vacation. The Eagles' offseason program stretched two weeks longer than normal this year because they have a new head coach, and it included the introduction of Doug Pederson's schemes and philosophies. On Thursday, Pederson sent his players off for six weeks; they will reconvene for training camp in late July. The Eagles had an abbreviated one-hour practice, and players who have spent 10 weeks training packed up for their last encounter with down time until 2017.

LAS VEGAS - So how good is Malachi Richardson? Although he entered Syracuse as a McDonald's all-American, the shooting guard was not on any NBA team's draft board in the fall. Then Richardson made the Atlantic Coast Conference's all-freshman team and spearheaded the Orange's run to the Final Four. "At the end of the season, he was on everybody's board," said an NBA executive who spoke on the condition of anonymity. A mock draft by CBS.com has the 76ers selecting Richardson with the 24th pick in the June 23 draft.

For months, the Phillies have scoured the country for amateur talent. When they select first overall in Thursday night's Major League Baseball draft, almost 20 Phillies scouts and executives will have seen the player they pick. The team organized workouts at Citizens Bank Park for 25 players. They have not spared resources on what is an important draft for the franchise's future. Johnny Almaraz, the Phillies' scouting director, said no decision has been made on which player they will take with the first pick.

The Eagles begin their third week of organized team activities on Tuesday. Here are three story lines and three players to watch: Final week of voluntary workouts: When coach Doug Pederson discussed the absences of Fletcher Cox and Darren Sproles, he emphasized that the offseason program has only been voluntary to this point. The four OTAs this week mark the final voluntary portion of the spring. The Eagles will host a mandatory minicamp next week and then take a six-week break before training camp.

Carson Wentz might be the third-string quarterback, but he's taking the same number of practice repetitions during the Eagles' offseason workouts as if he were the starter. Coach Doug Pederson said last week that Wentz received equal work during team drills as Sam Bradford did with the first-team offense and Chase Daniel did with the second-team offense, and its's expected to continue when the Eagles begin their second week of organized team activities on Tuesday. That accounts for a "few more reps" than a third-string quarterback typically would receive, according to Pederson.

Darren Sproles is not at the Eagles' practices this week and has not attended any voluntary workouts, coach Doug Pederson said Tuesday. Sproles is spending the spring with his family and is expected to attend the mandatory minicamp next month. "He and I are in direct communication," Pederson said. "We have been talking all offseason and I have no issues with Darren. I fully expect him to be here for the mandatory camp. But again, this is a voluntary program, so I can't fault him for [not]

After a strong NBA draft combine that followed a stellar junior season at St. Joseph's, forward DeAndre' Bembry is considered among the fastest risers in the NBA draft. Bembry is all in, having signed with an agent, and has been working out in Las Vegas in preparation for the draft on June 23. Villanova junior Josh Hart, fresh off the Wildcats' NCAA championship season, is testing the draft waters. He has put his name in but has not hired an agent and can still pull out by the May 25 deadline.

The five days that lapsed between the Eagles' trade for the No. 2 draft pick and Sam Bradford's reported request to be dealt would have been more than enough time for agent Tom Condon to gauge the market for trade partners. All he needs is one team. Otherwise, Bradford's hard-line stance, if true, would be ill-advised. But even if Condon has a suitor, he has to convince Howie Roseman that Bradford is prepared to hold out. It is the quarterback's only leverage, but it does have additional weight because of the importance of the position.
