The Rights To Ricky Sanchez: The Sixers Podcast

We celebrate Robert Covington's selection to the NBA All-Defense team, and Joel Embiid's second team selection. We dig deep into the Lorzenzo Brown mailbag to discuss some galaxy brain draft analysis, non-premier free-agent targets, and a listener upset with a non-ban. There's also the return of the Jigsaw.

Ah, the offseason. It feels like home, doesn't it? We talk about the respective futures of the Sixers and the Celtics, start to look toward the draft and free agency, discuss perspective trades for Kawhi Leonard, and recap the Lottery Party. We also include Eliza Hardy Jones' "Imagine The Process."

Look, is this the most coherent, technically sound Ricky you're ever going to hear? The answer is no. There's a lot of yelling and craziness but it's fun to relive if you went, and to hear and actual wedding take place on our podcast. And the guest lineup is pretty crazy, it's like we're a big deal! Finally, listen for no other reason than to hear the ovation Robert Covington got, Spike being a jerk about not being able to hear himself and Mike's Jason Kelce speech. 

Lottery Party t-shirts on sale until 8pm Wednesday.

The 2018 Rights To Ricky Sanchez Lottery Party is almost upon us! On this mini-bonus pod we run down some important details, give you some tips and instructions, and basically wonder why this is all happening. 

Disclaimer: sorry the sound quality is a little less than normal, Spike deleted it the first time we did it so we had to go old school. 

See you at the party!

The 2017-18 Sixers exceeded the expectations of anyone who isn't a maniac or perhaps a parent of one of the players. We go back and talk about the things and players that surprised and disappointed us most. We hand out the annual Ricky Awards as well; everyone is eagerly anticipating who will win TJ McConnell of The Year. And we pivot to the offseason, as If Not, Pick Will Convey As Two Seconds writer and star Andrew Unterberger joins us to discuss his piece about this summer being the best ever. 

The Lottery Party is TUESDAY, Robert Covington WILL be attending, Pablo Torre WILL be marrying Lauren and Zeke, and the event IS sold out, and we'll be releasing a podcast on Monday about the party.

Now we remember what it's like to lose. The Sixers looked like they might get blown out as the first half ended, but they TJd, Joel'd and Dario'd their way back into the game. It wasn't enough and the first Process Playoff run ended. We talked about what went wrong and right in the series. 

We'll do a season in review this weekend, and see you at the Lottery Party.

The Sixers' backs were up against the wall, so they called a man who they knew could get the job done; TJ McConnell. Brett Brown started McConnell, who played 39 minutes and led the Sixers past the Celtics, and sent the series back to Boston.

The Sixers had a shot to win this one, like they had a shot to win the last one, but weren't able to get it done. There was Embiid trying to end the lives of Baynes and Horford, another great TJ game, but no win. There's no anger or mopeyness here, but a podcast of perspective, reflection, some honest realities, and a look at the game itself. One of our best!

It seemed like we might get the Process dream, a win led by Robert Covington and TJ McConnell. So close, but yet so far. Ben Simmons had the worst game of his career, Brett Brown decided not to call a timeout, and in the cruelest of finishes, Al Horford hit a big bucket. Can they still win the series?

The Sixers lost an ugly one to the Celtics in game one of the Eastern Conference Semifinals. When we say ugly, it was mostly the Sixers who were ugly. Bad defense, missed shots, questionable decisions from the coach, just a disaster all around. Mike is pretty mad, it's one of his best performances.
