FOR OPENERS, SIXERS AL HORFORD IS GETTING RAVES!

By Peter Gleason

The Sixers got past the cameras and the hype yesterday, and got down to the real business of training camp:

Working out!

And all eyes were on new addition Al Horford (above right with Joel Embiid and Tobias Harris).

“For me it was incredible,” coach Brett Brown said. “I’m blown away that he’s here. I’m just so excited to have him.”

Fellow big man Embiid shared Brown’s excitement for his new teammate, with whom Embiid has battled closely over the past few seasons.

“I can learn a lot from him,” Embiid said. “He’s a great pro. We talked a lot, trying to figure out how to play together.”

Horford said that offensively, his first season as a Sixer will be different from his experiences in Atlanta and Boston, especially considering his position alongside another All-Star big man.
