Training camp, which began Saturday and concluded Wednesday morning at St. Joseph's University, was an eye-opening experience for 76ers rookie point guard Michael Carter-Williams. The No. 11 overall pick in the draft from Syracuse is expected to run the offense from day one. It's no surprise that the 6-foot-6, 185-pound Williams has taken some hits to his slender frame while trying to process an inordinate amount of information that his position requires. "There are a lot of things thrown at me and coaches testing me and a lot of different things, and sometimes I get a little bit overwhelmed, but I have to sit back and take everything in," Carter-Williams said after Wednesday's workout.

Spencer Hawes said Tuesday that his left knee injury is not serious. The 76ers center gave the organization a scare Monday when he hurt his knee doing defensive slides at training camp. The 7-foot, 245-pound center missed the remainder of practice and did not work out on Tuesday. "It's good," Hawes said after Tuesday's first session at St. Joseph's University. "I just kind of twisted my knee yesterday doing a drill, slipped on a wet spot. So it's kind of one of those things that you really can't do anything about.

THIS PROBABLY isn't a good preview to the 76ers' season, but the two players who stood out during a roughly 45-minute run observed by the media were guard Tony Wroten and newly signed center Solomon Alabi. Wroten has impressed coach Brett Brown with his activity throughout the five practices in 3 days at Saint Joseph's. He appears to play a very cerebral game, and made the nicest play of the scrimmage when he drove baseline and made a dump pass back in the lane to Alabi for an easy slam, as the second team played evenly with a first team that consisted of Michael Carter-Williams, James Anderson, Evan Turner, Thaddeus Young and Lavoy Allen.

At 25, Spencer Hawes will be an elder statesman on what could be among the youngest teams in the NBA. That point was accented Friday when the seventh-year center was asked during the team's media day whether he sees similarities in the youthfulness of this team and the Sacramento Kings squads he played on during his first three NBA seasons. "Even [on] those [Sacramento] teams, I don't know if there were this many young guys, but it is fun," he said. In his final season in Sacramento, 2009-10, the 25-57 Kings roster was filled with young players.

THADDEUS YOUNG is entering his seventh season as an NBA player, all with the 76ers. Brett Brown will be the fifth person he's called coach during his tenure. Spencer Hawes and Evan Turner have both been in Philly for four seasons - Hawes after three years in Sacramento, Turner after being selected second overall following a player-of-the-year season at Ohio State. They are now getting to know their second head coach after the resignation of Doug Collins following last season. Young has been a starter, a key reserve, a small forward, power forward and sometimes a center.

THERE IS one thing 76ers coach Doug Collins has been searching for all season. It hasn't been the return of Andrew Bynum, nor any other form of help from an outside object. No, with the roster being littered with injuries throughout the season, Collins still sought just one thing from whoever was available from night to night: consistency. Saturday against the visiting Charlotte Bobcats and with former star Allen Iverson in the house (please no more emails about how they should try to get him to come back and play)

When things aren't going, well, like most folks anticipated, the obligatory fallout has to get directed somewhere. We'll never know what might have happened, had Andrew Bynum's knees just cooperated this season. Alas, they didn't. And the result is a 28-43 record for the Sixers as they head into Friday night's game at Cleveland, still barely mathematically in contention for a playoff berth, though reality strongly suggests otherwise. So management gets blamed for pulling the trigger on such a risky trade, even though everybody seemed to be on board way back when.

Although the 76ers have recently turned in some of their best performances of the season and ended a 15-game road losing streak, the bottom line is that just 11 games remain until the playoffs, and the Sixers are on the outside looking in. On the bright side, the Sixers' 100-92 win over Milwaukee on Wednesday prevented the Bucks from sweeping the season series from the Sixers. Also, the Sixers, who play at Cleveland on Friday night at 7:30, have gotten great play from center Spencer Hawes.

LOS ANGELES – During a four-game homestand that saw them play some of the better basketball of the season, the 76ers put together some impressive wins against teams like Indiana, Brooklyn and Portland, But the brutal reality of where they stand in the NBA pecking order reared its ugly face again as the Los Angeles Clippers completed a season sweep of them at the Staples Center on Wednesday, easily beating the Sixers 101-72. The Sixers loss extended their road losing streak to 14 games.

FROM 32,000 FEET, HEADING TO LA - The news that has dominated the happenings of the 76ers the past couple of days has revolved around center Andrew Bynum and the revelation he underwent season-ending surgery on both knees Tuesday in New York (more on that later). As has been the case for much of the season, the primary focus of the team hasn't been what's happening on the court, but rather what is going on with the balky knees of the prized offseason acquisition and when or whether he would ever make his debut for his new team.
