The Rights To Ricky Sanchez

Joel Embiid is playing basketball, Dario Saric is a Sixer in Philadelphia, and the Sixers won the lottery. So it's time for Retweet Armageddon, right? Not so fast. We take your suggestions on when the online day of reckoning should happen, talk about the new Sam Hinkie long-read in Sports Illustrated, discuss the losses to the Cavs, Raptors and Magic, and the debut of the twin-towers lineup with Embiid and Okafor.

Also we talk about the Sixers as compared to The Ship Of Theseus, thanks to Sean Carroll.

We recap the week in Sixers, including the double-overtime loss to the Grizzlies, the Embiid-less obliteration by the Bulls, the win over the Heat, and Robert Covington's sorta-break out of his slump. We also briefly preview the Cavs game, and take a ton of questions from Twitter.

Somehow, someway, Nik Stauskas is playing like a man possessed. Somehow, some way, Robert Covington has forgotten how to shoot. We those things, the win over the Wizards, the matchup with the Timberwolves, and the Sixers decision to rest Joel Embiid at home.

For the first time in a few years, the Sixers won a game before December. To put that in perspective, the last time the Sixers won a game before December, that Sixers team had Evan Turner and Spencer Hawes on it.

We do talk about the election for the first 45 or 46 minutes. It is spirited but we still love each other and you. You can skip past it if you've had enough.

We discuss the win over the Pacers, the near-win over the Pacers, the return of Robert Covington to the land of the living, the Joel Embiid podcast with Woj, JoJo's rest and the early success of the Los Angeles Lakers. Also, the newly discovered controversy regarding Bryan Colangelo.

Here we are, winless and arguing about Brett Brown's late-game coaching. Is it a product of a young, flawed roster, or is it time to hold Brown accountable? Sounds familiar.

We discuss Brown's coaching and the chances he makes it through the year, the greatness that is Joel Embiid, the Jerami Grant trade, the Nerlens Noel rumors, Robert Covington's shooting struggles, Jerry Colangelo's stepping down at USA Basketball, and more!

'Trust The Process,' is a little phrase that we're all probably a little sick of and proud of at the same time.

When we look back at where it started (in this context at least), we can whittle it down to this; Tony Wroten said it, Pablo Torre wrote it, we ran with it, Joel Embiid perfected it.

It's been a long time coming, but we've finally got ESPN's Pablo Torre on the podcast to talk about his original Hinkie article, where it all went, and how awesome Joel Embiid is.

The season begins this week, and we look ahead and make our predictions for the 2016-17 Sixers. How long will Nerlens Noel be on the team? How much longer will everyone fight about it? How many games will they win? Will Ben Simmons play at all? Will Hollis Thompson shoot 40% from three? How long will it take us to make a lewd joke about Jerryd Bayless' wrist soreness?

And finally... Joel Embiid?

Joel Embiid really played a game! Then he played another one! And he looked good! We discuss Embiid's debut, his embracing of his new nickname, and how everyone else on the team looked in the first two games. 

Then, we're treated to a game of TEST THE PROCESS! Boy, this will be embarrassing. Spike and Mike compete against each other in a round of trivia hosted by none other than Andrew 'Invented Sauce Castillo, The Nickname Not The Guy,' Unterberger. You can follow the great Andrew Unterberger on Twitter @AUGetOffMyGold. You can read his work and his questionable opinions about music at Billboard.

Hey, here we are again! We discuss the news about Ben Simmons, make up scenarios, and help you get through it. Let us know if you find out who is helping us get through it. 

We also talk about Nerlens Noel's comments at camp, and what the Sixers lineup may look like now.
