"I think it is a mutual appreciation", Redick told reporters Thursday, a day after Philly's season ended in Game 5 with a loss to the Boston Celtics. Boston outplayed Philadelphia in clutch time throughout the series, outscoring the Sixers 51-39 when games entered the final five minutes with a margin of five or fewer points.

Simmons apparently shares the same level of confidence, as Embiid revealed that the 21-year-old came up to him after Wednesday's loss and said the duo is going to win a lot of championships together.

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.

"'We know what to expect", Simmons said.

"Me and Ben, we have a lot of room to grow", Embiid said. "Looking at what we did, we've got a bright future". We feel like when everybody is on, we're unbeatable. "So, second series and I'm learning, there's a lot of things I learned this series that I didn't against Miami so that makes me a better player, so I'm grateful for those opportunities".

"I feel like we had more [to show]".

Embiid is right. Should the pair stay healthy and should the Sixers continue to build on their success in the right way, the Sixers should have a bright, competitive future.

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.
