The Rights To Ricky Sanchez: The Sixers Podcast (Time's Yours)

Joel Embiid dominated, Jimmy Butler came through in the fourth quarter, and the Sixers beat the miserable, hate each other, hot seat coach having, Kyrie Irving hating, hate to see it, House Of Pain singing, Boston Celtics. We talk about Embiid and Butler’s performances, a surprise banning from our live shows, and Andrew Unterberger talks about which fans hate us the most. Let’s enjoy this one.

Happy birthday Joel Embiid! Brett Brown talked for 70 minutes to Zach Lowe, but what did he really say? We discuss Brown’s appearance on another podcast, the Sixers third straight win, why the team’s defense isn’t as good as last year’s, how far back we think Joel Embiid is, how good Zion Williamson is and will be, and who might be some good offseason targets for the Sixers. We also announce a special guest for the Final Lottery Party.

The Sixers sneak by the Cavs lifelessly, but a win is a win, especially after a win. We announce the 2019 Lottery Party details (check them out here), and the fact that it will be the final lottery party. We need you there to give the proper goodbye to the era. We discuss the short-lived Jonah Bolden era, the brand new Zhaire Smith era, Joel Embiid’s return and new dog, and what, in fact, makes Brett Brown a good coach.

With just a month or so left in the season, do the Sixers have enough time with all of their key players together to be good enough to get through the Eastern Conference? Also discussed are what’s going on with Jimmy Butler, the options the Sixers would have if he doesn’t resign, other players we like watching who have never been Sixers, LeBron passing Michael Jordan on the all-time scoring list. And a new Sixers song from Heemy76.

With three minutes left in the game against the tanking Bulls, the Sixers led by 10 points. They lost. We discuss the final minutes of the brutal game, and the final baffling play. We move on quickly to talk about how much of the team’s late game issues are Brett Brown related, and how much recent comments by Josh Harris puts pressure on him. Finally we cast the Process movie, talk about Redick’s haircut, talk bandwagons, and do a listener submitted Jigsaw.

Just about every Sixer is going to be reevaluated in a number of weeks. Joel Embiid, Furkan Korkmaz, and Boban Marjanovic are healing while the Sixers are playing. We discuss Jimmy Butler’s perceived coasting, the Processy spasticness of Jonathon Simmons, the aggressiveness of Ben Simmons, as well as the chances Ben Simmons makes a decision that turns the NBA on its head, and what it would have been like if LeBron chose the Sixers.

Because talking about the Sixers sleepwalking through a home loss to the Portland Trailblazers isn’t a ton of fun, we only spend about ten minutes on it. Then we get to a rare listener submitted Jigsaw that involves sneezing in the sack and being Bryan Colangelo’s personal assistant, a Lorenzo Brown mailbag where we talk about powering up certain Sixers and who would turn back a Pepsi when they ordered a coke, and Unterberger tries to convince us he likes Jimmy Butler.

The Celtics, fueled by being free of their poison-in-the-locker-room point guard Kyrie Irving, were able to squeak by the Sixers once again.

The new Sixers starting five, that doesn’t have a nickname, had an outstanding debut in beating the Nuggets and Nikola Jokic (who is doughy). Spike and Mike talk about the fit of the new starting lineup, and how the bench pieces fit in as well. Also, how insane it is that Elton Brand is the GM, which dog breed is each Sixers player most similar to, how much does ownership have to do with trade timing, and a historical ranking of trade deadlines since The Process began.

We talk about the Warriors win and Ben Simmons’ play, the case for Joel Embiid as the league’s MVP, the recent Anthony Davis and Kristaps Porzingis situations and how sad it is that the Celtics aren’t looking so hot, upcoming trade deadline targets, and Andrew Unterberger introduces a controversial theory.

Jimmy Butler fulfilled his dream of playing point guard and the Sixers won in Los Angeles while Brandon Ingram dunked on Corey Brewer but was thinking about Mike the entire time. We’re on the doorstep of the NBA trade deadline and the Sixers may trade the former first overall pick in the draft for a guy who was on the shirt. We discuss the possibility of Brett Brown talking too much, if Ben Simmons is a point guard, and Mike’s girlfriend makes a special appearance to be an insufferable Lakers fan. Good pod.

We also discuss Mike's new show about Ben Simmons and whether he can continue to do the podcast.

Amos Lee was the first person ever named Spike or Mike to co-host this podcast. He was also the first and only person to ever construct a song explicitly for the opening of this podcast. Also, Amos Lee is a recording artist loved around the world with a new album out today called My New Moon. Amos joined us to talk about Markelle Fultz, anxiety disorders, Sixers ownership, us ditching his theme song and hoagie mouth. We even got Amos to morph into his alter-ego, Tony, Toni, Ta-Tone and talk about his Sam Hinkie song.

Since the last time Ben Detrick came on the podcast, we think you know what happened. Ben joined us to talk about Burnergate, a story that somehow topped every weird story to happen with the Sixers, his favorite moments, some unreported moments, Jerry Colangelo's role, the team's current GMless situation, and what it's like to have hundreds of people change their Twitter profile picture to your face. You can follow Ben on Twitter and listen to his podcast Cookies.

February 19, 2014 - As the first Sam Hinkie trade deadline approached, Spike and Mike discussed what the team might get for its established players. This led to one of the most famous Spike vs. Mike fights, the "Evan Turner vs. Dion Waiters" fight.

February 15, 2015 - This episode has come to be known as the "Paul Millsap Story" episode. The original description was as follows: Spike did go to All-Star practice (thanks to his lovely wife), so we talk about that, the Sprite Slam Dunk, the Hawks All-Star failures, Patrick Beverly, Kenny Smith, Zach LaVine vs. Dario, Bob and Nerlens in the Rising Stars game, the failed NBA After-Dark takeover, Evan Turner's game winner, make fun of Charles Barkley, and much, much more!

June 29, 2013 - This is a rebroadcast of the very first podcast Spike and Mike ever did together. It was recorded just after Sam Hinkie's first draft as Sixers GM, when he traded Jrue Holiday for Nerlens Noel and a second first round pick. Two weeks later, Spike and Mike would record the first ever "Rights To Ricky Sanchez."

The podcast is on a two-week vacation. We'll be back stronger than ever?

Emergency pod! After a 48 hour frenzy that made it seem like the Sixers might get LeBron James and Kawhi Leonard, that particular dream ended tonight as James signed a four-year deal with the Lakers. Spike and Mike talk about the ramifications and Spike sort of lays into James. 

As well, there's a before and after podcast (before LeBron signed and after) with Mike and his Lakers fan girlfriend Alyssa that is at the end of this pod.

At midnight on Friday, the NBA Free Agency period will officially begin (sort of, you still can't sign anyone but they can talk and everyone will announce deals). We go through the available free agents and talk about the likelihood of them becoming Sixers, as well as the possible destinations for LeBron James. We discuss the strong reaction to Mike's CJ McCollum trade, and talk to Andrew Unterberger about his article about the Sixers doing nothing, and the five-year anniversary of The Ricky.

Also, we banned someone from the pod.

The Sixers surprised us all by doing what everyone expected, picking Mikal Bridges. Then they did what not of us expected by trading Bridges to Phoenix for Zhaire Smith and a 2021 Miami Heat first round pick. 

Then there was some trading, some picking, some more trading and then a little more picking. We recap the night!

Mike and guest host John Gonzalez talk about the state of the Sixers going into the draft, including why and how they still don't have a general manager. The huge question mark of Markelle Fultz is one that the Sixers must have some clarity on before they make their pick on Thursday. They weigh the pros and cons of moving up, and potentially taking on the Chandler Parsons contract, as well as LeBron/Kawhi/Paul George dreaming. Also, BurnerGate gets revisited and of course some Hinkie talk.

It took long enough, but all's well that ends well. Bryan Colangelo resigned from his position as President and General Manager of the Sixers after an 'investigation' proved that his wife tweeted team secrets on several different Twitter accounts.

Somehow we're in the ninth day of this, and the only people who don't know that the right move is to move on from Bryan Colangelo is the Sixers themselves. We try to keep our sanity, discuss what could be causing the delay, and decide what happens if they don't fire him.

We are in the fifth day of the Bryan Colangelo Twitter fiasco, with no communication from the team. We discuss how we think the situation should and will progress, the guy in San Francisco with the t-shirts, the reports and speculation, and The Americans finale. 

We've got a new shirt. This is self explanatory. Always go FULL DETRICK. Get it here. 

We'd like to be clear that this was our (Spike's) idea, and Tanner Lowry's design, and Ben Detrick did not have anything to do with its creation or promotion. 

We told Ben about it, and of course he thinks it's hilarious.

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.

It seemed like we might get the Process dream, a win led by Robert Covington and TJ McConnell. So close, but yet so far.
