The Sixers open training camp today at Saint Joseph's University. Let's repeat that in case it gets lost in the shuffle of the Phillies trying to clinch their third straight division title and the buzz that always surrounds the local pro football team: The Sixers open training camp today. The Sixers might be under the radar in this city due to the success of the aforementioned teams, lest we forget about the high hopes for the Flyers, too. But that's OK with them. Whether they go unnoticed by local sports fans or anyone else who follows the NBA, it's really OK with them.

5 THINGS TO WATCH Five things to look for as Sixers training camp opens today: 1. The backcourt: Much praise is being heaped on second-year point guard Jrue Holiday, who has a new backcourt running mate in second overall pick Evan Turner. Holiday will be a staple at the point. When he is not in the game, Turner could spell him for a time there, as coach Doug Collins has talked about how well Turner has looked in preseason workouts at the point. If Turner is a little slow in adapting to the NBA game, Lou Williams could start at the "two," at least for the beginning of the season.

This is a posting yesterday by Les Bowen on the Daily News' Eagletarian blog. Everybody is weary of hearing that a settlement to end the NFL lockout is near, but this time, people on the management and players sides clearly are preparing to go back to work. Talks adjourned yesterday in New York without a signed agreement, but amid reports that major CBA issues were settled. Everyone involved seems to think the lockout is all but officially over. The joint statement issued by the league and the NFLPA referred to "legal and financial teams" working through the weekend.

The 49ers' training camp in Rocklin, Calif., has been intense, with an emphasis on the tense. Having missed its shot at a third consecutive Super Bowl title last season, San Francisco is unsettled at offensive line and running back; the defensive players are upset that the offensive linemen are cut blocking (blocking at the knees), and disputes such as the one last week between linebacker Charles Haley and offensive tackle Steve Wallace are not uncommon. After the Haley-Wallace incident, head coach George Seifert brought the squad together and announced that he didn't intend to lose control of the team and that he would start fining brawlers.

Ray Rhodes wasted no time making good on a warning he issued at his first training-camp press conference. He used his immense influence to can a misbehaving team mascot yesterday at the afternoon practice. The Eagle mascot - a costumed intern named Jeff Alexander - was a major distraction to Rhodes and his players in the morning session, squirting water at fans, TV cameramen and sideline observers. Later, he interrupted a special-teams drill by running past the bleachers waving a Dallas Cowboys banner high overhead.

On Thursday, the 76ers will open their practice facility doors for the first time since the NBA lockout began on July 1. At the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine on Wednesday, the Sixers made coach Doug Collins and president Rod Thorn available to talk with reporters for the first time in five months. Collins and Thorn still aren't allowed to talk to their players - the agreed-upon settlement has yet to be ratified into the league's next collective bargaining agreement - but they can talk about them.
