The 76ers have seemed to handle the first speedbump of the season quite nicely. And, no, we don’t mean concerns about Andrew Bynum’s knee ...
Two times earlier in the month, the club took out full page ads in the Daily News and other area papers to promote ticket sales, using photos of Evan Turner, Jrue Holiday and newly acquired center Bynum — no question the three biggest draws on the club.
On Wednesday (top photo at right), the club again took out full-page ads and this time included nine players that would seem to cover most of what will be the regular playing rotation.
Included was rookie free-agent Maalik Wayns from Villanova, who has transformed a fine exhibition season into a spot at the back-up point guard position. Not included was second-year center Lavoy Allen, out of Temple, a pleasant surprise as a rookie last year who, it would seem, is being counted on for big minutes again in 2012-13.
