    The Philadelphia 76ers new season gets underway this week.  Hope springs eternal, or does that apply in this case, coming off of last year’s 19-63 record?

    “Well, the hope is somewhat extended, maybe two or three years into the future,” explained Philadelphia Inquirer sports columnist Bob Ford. “The hope is that you’re going to see progress. At least, that’s the way the team likes to sell it.” He sat down with WHYY’s Dave Heller to give a preview of what lies ahead for the Sixers.
