NOT ALWAYS SUNNY? In New Jersey, Wes Szafran writes of the 76ers' average attendance of 15,592 through 10 home games, "If you sit inside the Wells Fargo Center during a Sixer game, it’s hard to believe there are that many people around you." In an "attempt to boost attendance during the holiday season, the Sixers have started selling 'Sixer Holiday Packs.'" The ticket packages, which start at $60, include a "pair of tickets to three different games, an autographed player photo and a $50 gift certificate to Golden Nugget Jewelers." Still, Szafran writes, "There's no obvious solution for what the Sixers can do to bring in more fans" (SOUTH JERSEY TIMES, 12/5).
