There is no theoretical physicist, acclaimed writer, or audiobook on this week's Ricky, just some riffing about the Sixers.
We talk about Bryan Colangelo's appearance on The Vertical Podcast, the opening of the new practice facility, NBA2K 17, the 20 man roster, Vegas' over/under for the team, and Joel Embiid's upcoming debut. We also discuss Sam Hinkie's follows on Twitter.

It's been two weeks, so we have a lot to talk about. Also, it's the offseason, so we're committed to doing something pretty different or absurd in each podcast.
First, we discuss Sam Hinkie's Twitter awakening, Allen Iverson's Hall Of Fame speech, Brett Brown's press lunch, the return of Elton Brand, and the various Embiid media of the week.
Then, we provide you with something incredible and ridiculous. We've recorded and put together an audiobook of Sam Hinkie's resignation letter. The various pages are read by us, LL Pavorsky, Max Rappaport and Jim Adair, Chris Ryan and Andy Greenwald, Sean Carroll, Andrew Goldstein, Ben Detrick, Mike Weber, Michael Baumann, and Eliza Hardy Jones. This is an all-timer.

Our offseason of intelligence soldiers on with Philadelphia native and Caltech Theoretical Physicist Sean Carroll.
We talk about what he thought of Hinkie's departure, Noel vs. Okafor, and what it's like to be a theoretical physicist AND a Sixers fan.
We also talk about the multiverse, his new book The Big Picture, and whether or not we're living in a simulation.
