76ers' James Harden, Joel Embiid healthy, happy and chasing a title

PHILADELPHIA - James Harden leaned into a microphone and deadpanned that he lost 100 pounds over the summer. Joel Embiid’s summer vacation — at least, according to the NBA scoring champion — was spent entirely in bed.And what of that NBA investigation into the Philadelphia 76ers for possible tampering in offseason free-agency moves?"The league office does an amazing job," basketball President Daryl Morey said.Well, that seems settled.But for a franchise that has seen a smattering of tumultuous issues and confusing players over the last decade, the 76ers enter the season at peace.

The Sixers enter training camp this week at the Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina, without a significant injury or a holdout or a trade demand or any kind of distraction that could derail them from a serious championship run.Harden has snapped out of the "tough times, lot of dark moments" that plagued him the last couple of seasons as he dealt with injuries. Embiid is recovered from hand injuries that cost him playoff games."I believe this, this is the best talent I’ve had since I’ve been here," third-year 76ers coach Doc Rivers said at team headquarters in New Jersey.Harden and Embiid can make a dominant pair.

And Tyrese Maxey flashes smiles as wide as his potential, seemingly on the brink of a breakout season.After the Sixers were eliminated in the second round by the Heat, Embiid said they needed more tough guys like P.J. Tucker.

So Morey signed him away from Miami on a three-year deal. Tucker, though, did say Monday he underwent an arthroscopic procedure on his left knee about six weeks ago but was already cleared to return.Harden, officially listed at 220 pounds, does look more in shape and doesn't have the hamstring issues that

Pennsylvania boy, 8, finds huge shark tooth fossil while on vacation in South Carolina
SUMMERVILLE, S.C. - Riley Gracely and his family were looking around the piles of dirt and gravel at Palmetto Fossil Excursions in Summerville when he saw something that looked like a tooth.The 8-year-old Lebanon, Pennsylvania, boy started digging in the soil, clay and gravel and pulled out a huge fossilized tooth from the long-extinct angustiden shark species, that was 22 million to 28 million years old."He got lucky," Riley’s dad Justin Gracely said in a phone call Monday.Sky Basak, who owns Palmetto Fossil with her husband Josh, called it a "once in a lifetime find."The tooth measured 4.75 inches — about the size of Riley’s hand.The Gracely family was on their annual vacation to Myrtle Beach and made the 2.5-hour trip south to Summerville to go to Palmetto Fossil, a 100-acre pit rich with prehistoric material including all manner — and parts — of sea creatures.South Carolina has many such locations, buried deep in the earth along the coastal plain, where ocean and rivers ebbed and flowed for millions of years.Gracely, 40, said he has been visiting Myrtle Beach since he was 5 and he and his mother, a microbiologist, scoured the sand for shark’s teeth.Two years ago, when Palmetto had just opened, Gracely saw something on Instagram about it and made the trek. This summer was their third visit.Last year, older son Collin, 10, found a 4-inch megalodon tooth, a species that came after the angustiden and the largest fish that ever lived, according to Encyclopedia Britannica.
