Clippers could be an option for Kawhi Leonard and other NBA podcasts you need to listen today

The season may be over for the Philadelphia 76ers and it wasn't pretty the way they went out against the Boston Celtics in Game 5 of the NBA's Eastern Conference semifinals but remember "The Process" is just beginning.

In order to build on the foundation that the Sixers built this season in terms of success, Embiid knows that both he and Ben Simmons need to step their game up, and learn from this experience.

Boston led 111-109, and after the game, Embiid - who would have gone to the line if the call was made - felt he was fouled.

Former Oklahoma State Cowboys basketball player Marcus Smart delivered a series of game-winning plays for the Boston Celtics Wednesday night.

"Me and Ben have a lot of room to grow, "Embiid said. We're going to be fine".

"I think we've got a bright future", Embiid said, and related an exchange he and Simmons shared after their loss to the Celtics, when the guard pointed to the center's hands and predicted there would be "a lot of rings" on Embiid's fingers. "I will let [Sixers president and general manager Bryan Colangelo], my agent and the events over the next two months play out, and we will make a decision".

The Celtics used an 8-0 run late in the fourth quarter to finish off the 4-1 series victory. "I felt like I had lot more to go".

"I feel like this season was kind of like a success", Embiid said. "We have a bright future".

Of course for things to move forward, it will take work, lots of work and that starts with Allen Iverson's most remembered word "practice".
