Last night up in Syracuse the 76ers lost another preseason game and their record fell to 1-3 this month.  Nerlens Noel (12 & 11) and Henry Sims (10 & 7) posted solid performances against the Knicks, but it remains painfully obvious that the 76ers have a great deal to work on.  So as Brett Brown’s “all of October” training camp rolls on, we are going to continue...

TWroe to the Rescue??

This season will be like an endless training camp, rotating low-paid players through and giving extensive time to young guys. But I wouldn’t say they should be totally ignored. Nerlens Noel could be a fly-swatting defensive force, and there’s a chance...
