The Rights To Ricky Sanchez (time's yours)

One of our most popular podcasts ever was with NBA Draft scout Elan Vinokurov, so we're RUNNING IT BACK! Elan comes on the show to talk about what he (and we) got wrong and right about the 2015 Draft, and take a look at some of the bigger questions for the 2016 draft. Elan was nice enough to offer to come on twice this year, so we'll have him on closer to the draft to get into some of the nitty gritty.

Follow Elan on Twitter @ElanVino, and visit his site at evhoops.com.

We also discuss what went into our now famous billboard.

What a week it's been for The Process. It's pretty funny that our group is seen as small, but "The Process" and its proponents seem to have captured the ongoing narrative for an NBA team for the better part of three years.

In any case, this episode was recorded "live," as Mike says, when in really means "when we're both in the same room." We discuss our feelings on the week, a few days later, the home court finale, which we both attended, the Josh Harris presser, the upcoming Lottery Party, and the future of the team and the podcast.

In case you were wondering, the Lottery Party is STILL ON, and will now be more massive than ever.

Not much to say here.

There will still be a Lottery Party, which will be Sam Hinkie Appreciation Night.

We will look to add Sam's name to the shirt.

Thanks for listening to our podcast. You guys are the best.

On some level, winning only nine games this season would be appropriate. If you're going to be bad, you might as well be all-time bad.

On another level, giving people one last chance to take shots at the team is something we'd probably all like to avoid.

We discuss the final five games, the loss to the Pacers, Villanova's big win, Buddy Hield's disappearing act and place in the draft, Sam Hinkie squatting 500 pounds, and take a boat load of Twitter questions.

We're almost there, gang.

It's sort of perfect that the scandal (?) involving D'Angelo Russell, also involves Swaggy P. This has Sixers written all over it.

We discuss the always-was-going-to-happen Okafor for Russell trade, the recent reports about Sam Hinkie's future with the team, the odds the Sixers win again this season, Nerlens Noel's sadness, and basically an hour of Elton Brand and Carl Landry talk.

Mike is celebrating his anniversary with the wonderful Alyssa, and driving up to the Bay Area to watch the Sixers play the Warriors. Spike is suffering from the worst allergy attack in the history of allergies.

We will do a full podcast this week. While you wait, here is the Sam Hinkie interview we did in October of 2013, that many new Ricky listeners have never heard. It's funny to hear what we thought then, and what we think now. Sam was great, and this is still one of the best pods we've done.

Until later this week, keep on processing.

A pretty big week for The Process, I think we'd all agree.

We talk about the #BusTheProcess trip and reaction, the Ricky basketball game at the Center, Max Rappaport's deep dive on the Trusters in Complex Mag, Kevin Durant's inevitable signing with the Sixers, Brett Brown on the Zach Lowe podcast, Mike's big board, Joel Embiid back in Qatar, TJ vs. Ish, and if the Sixers will win again this season.

The Sixers won a game! Unfortunately it may have come at a high cost, as we give an update on Robert Covington's injury.

We discuss the big win, the loss of Jahlil Okafor for the rest of the season, the very Process article from Tom Haberstroh, and tie up some odds and ends!

Deadspin said we have Stockholm Syndrome, Max Rappaport got like a thousand retweets, we confused other fans and most of the beat writers, and a bunch of Process Trusters refused to chant "Let's Go Sixers" on the big screen, to the confusion of one Christian Crosby. It was a successful RTRS Night at The Center.

We wrap up the evening's highlights, talk about the (probably fake) Dennis Schroeder trade, and try to figure out why the Sixers stink so bad again.

The Sixers made a franchise-altering trade at the deadline once again, acquiring Joel Anthony and a second round pick.

We discuss the trades, and non-trade of Jahlil Okafor, announce the 2016 Lottery Party location, and talking about how you actually get to the moon.
