The Rockies may crumble, Gibraltar may tumble, but they've got nothing on the 76ers. They can fall apart with the best of them. The Sixers, scorched, 20-1, at the start of the fourth quarter in last Wednesday night's loss to Toronto, got burned, 19-6, in the first 5:57 of the final period in last night's 114-103 loss to Indiana. Beach chairs don't collapse that easily. Ice cream doesn't melt that fast. The Sixers - or whatever remains of them - are turning it into an art form.

Johnny Davis, fired as the coach of the 76ers after a 22-60 season, is close to landing a job as an assistant with the New Jersey Nets. Nets general manager John Nash confirmed that Nets coach John Calipari "has a high regard for the professionalism" Davis showed in "a very difficult situation" last season. Davis, who came to the Sixers after six seasons in the NBA as an assistant, was dropped despite having two seasons remaining on a guaranteed contract. "We have legitimate interest," Nash said.

The news was exactly what Ed Badger anticipated: He and Bob Ociepka will not be retained as assistant coaches with the 76ers. The Sixers made their decision formal yesterday. Maurice Cheeks, a three-year assistant under John Lucas and Johnny Davis, will remain on new coach Larry Brown's staff. "I talked to [team president] Pat Croce the other day, and he said Larry wants to bring in his own guys," Badger said from his summer home in Marco Island, Fla. "That's something we already knew.

Basketball's lost and found is a curious place. You never know who might be coming or going. And certainly not when or why. Mark Davis, lost in the obscurity of the Minnesota bench, has found himself with the 76ers. Jerry Stackhouse, who located virtually instant stardom as a rookie, is suddenly and inexplicably lost in a maze of missed shots, turnovers and dark scowls. Don MacLean, who found a niche in the NBA as an instant-offense forward, has momentarily lost his way to the hoop.

Michael Cage examines the 0-2 start of the 76ers and smiles knowingly. Other than the sheer youth of his teammates, it is nothing he hasn't seen before. A comparison to last season, when Cage was with Cleveland and the Cavaliers lost their first seven games by an average of more than 12 points? Not even close. "In Cleveland, we just had vacancies at positions," Cage said after completing preparations for tonight's game against the Detroit Pistons at the CoreStates Center. "I mean, we still thought [injured and since-retired center]

Mark Bradtke, the mystery man from Australia whom 76ers coach Johnny Davis has never seen play, will be in uniform tonight against the Phoenix Suns. Bradtke, a 6-foot-10, 265-pound forward-center, went through the NBA physical yesterday and could play as early as tonight. Could play, that is, in the right situation, such as the Sixers running out to a big lead. "I have seen him on film, but I could see 100 films and still not know about him," Davis said before last night's game in Boston.

Bensalem won its seventh straight game, a 64-50 victory over Central Bucks West on Friday, to run its record to 10-1. But coach Sheldon Per was not satisfied yet. "We were awful," he said. "It's like I never coached defense before. "I'm pleased with our offense and execution, and I thought we had the defense licked. "But we played like a third- or fourth-place ball club, and I think we're better than that. I expect a big defensive effort (tomorrow night at home against Central Bucks East)

The other shoe finally dropped for 76ers assistant coaches Bob Ociepka and Ed Badger yesterday when the team announced their firings. Both had been with the Sixers for one season, and when team president Pat Croce fired general manager Brad Greenberg and coach Johnny Davis on April 20, it was expected that Ociepka and Badger might not stay around. Greenberg and Davis were let go only 11 months after being hired. Their firings came after the Sixers finished 22-60 - the third-worst record in franchise history.

Patience, Pat. That's the advice Turner Sports analyst Chuck Daly has for Sixers president Pat Croce after he fired first-year coach Johnny Davis and general manager Brad Greenberg on Sunday. Since Jim Lynam left after the 1991-92 season, the Sixers have gone through four coaches. "Ultimately, they're going to have to learn a certain amount of patience," Daly said during a conference call yesterday promoting Turner's NBA playoffs coverage. "Rebuilding a franchise and getting it to a point where it's competitive is not easy.

One team's castoff is another team's emergency measure. That is one way to look at the 76ers' anticipated signing of 6-9 free-agent forward-center Adrian Caldwell. Caldwell, waived Dec. 27 after appearing in 17 games with the New Jersey Nets, passed a physical examination yesterday. The 30-year-old veteran is expected to sign a 10-day contract and be available for tonight's game against the Golden State Warriors at the CoreStates Center. "He's a big, physical guy who has some experience playing against bigger people," Sixers general manager Brad Greenberg said.
