The Rights To Ricky Sanchez: The Sixers Podcast

Joel Embiid is sitting out with a knee injury that he played against Houston with. We go over conspiracy theories and just what is going on with The Process' knee.

We discuss trade options for Jahlil Okafor and the rumor that Richaun Holmes is in demand.

And the long awaited appearance of Nerlens Noel Twitter leader and father of Alt-Process Ben Detrick of Cookies Hoops, The Ringer and The New York Times.

It's a LIVE RICKY. Well they're always recorded live, and you always listen when it's recorded, but this time we were in the same room when it was recorded. Mike calls this a "live Ricky."

The NBA and its coaches decided that the world would rather see Paul Millsap in the All-Star game than Joel Embiid. This is not a world we want to live in. We discuss the Embiid All-Star snub, the TJ McConnell Rising Stars Challenge snub, who we believe the enemies of the Sixers (us) are, this week's games, and take some questions on Facebook Live on the Rights To Ricky Sanchez page.

We often talk about Retweet Armageddon, and getting online retribution for the anti-Process takes over the last few years. But within the Process-folks, there was a lot of anti-Brett Brown and Robert Covington discussion, is it finally time to walk that back?

We also discuss the limited playing time for Chasson Randle, Joel Embiid's chances at being a backup All-Star, Bryan Colangelo's recent interview on the TV broadcast, the Sixers career of Mo Williams, and whether or not the Sixers are #TooGood.

Bus The Process was a fantastic success. ESPN said the name, Joel Embiid almost said the name. Comcast Sportsnet said the name, and nobody got injured. We wrap up the evening.

We also talk about Embiid's growth, TJ's game-winner, and what our new projections for Sixers wins is. 

Finally, we reveal the winners of the Retweet Armageddon Congress listener vote.

It was a very sad day for The Process, as Hollis Thompson was released this week. We reflect on the career of the most Process player (arguably) of the Process era.

We also discuss Joel Embiid's All-Star bid, TJ McConnell's starting spot, a potential trade for Jimmy Butler, the wins over the Wolves and the Nuggets, the Joel-Noel pairing, Ben Simmons' potential return, and announce the finalists for the listener spots in the Retweet Armageddon Congress.

For the listing of the candidates and your chance to vote for the in-town and out-of-town candidate (once per day), scroll down in this post below the podcast.

Since our last podcast, nothing changed with the Nerlens Noel situation and the Sixers, and everything changed. Bryan Colangelo spoke, and Joel Embiid spoke *out*, saying that he'd like to give the Twin Towers experience a try with Noel instead of Okafor. We also discuss Alt-Process leader Ben Detrick's piece on The Ringer suggesting possible trades for each.

Finally, we took some questions from our friends at r/Sixers, for the first ever Ricky AMA.

We also play the brand new song from Process Truster and actual musician, John Vincent, called "Chu Chu The F**kin' Legend."

For the first time ever, Joel Embiid said he did not trust the process. Coincidentally, that was the first time that Jahlil Okafor started along side him. And then it got even less fun when Nerlens Noel returned against the Lakers and only played eight minutes. We talk about the Triple Towers experiment, Jerryd Bayless' wrist surgery and subsequent missing of the season, the "return" of Ben Simmons to the court, and recap the week's games.

We also reveal the original members of the Retweet Armageddon Congress.

They said it would never happen! Well, Spike said it would never happen. It looks like Nerlens Noel is going to return to play for the Sixers. We'll discuss how he'll fit. We also recap the week in Sixers, give out some quarter-season grades, talk about Bus The Process II (F*ck Andrew Sharp), the Retweet Armageddon Congress, and the new Ricky theme song by Amos Lee and Jaron Olevsky.

You heard us right! There is a Bus The Process II, on January 14th, to Washington D.C. to see Sixers vs. Wizards. For just $85, you'll get the bus down to D.C. (yes there is an option for those who live there and don't need the bus), a ticket to the game, snacks on the bus, a commemorative t-shirt from Cheesesteaktees, your picture on center court, and you'll shoot a free throw on the court after the game. Go to THIS LOCATION for all the details and purchase tickets from Phans Of Philly. It's going to be a lot of fun.

A huge, unreal thanks to Chef Olev And Sammos Hinklie, also known to the world as Amos Lee and his keyboardist/musical director Jaron Olevsky for the new Ricky theme song "Stay A Believer (Trust The Process)," a song written and recorded for Process Trusters everywhere (also I just named the song). Amos, in case you haven't heard, is from Philadelphia and a huge Truster Of The Process (read this great profile on Amos and the Sixers by Jason Lipshutz at Billboard). You can buy Amos' new album 'Spirit,' which is great. His entire library is great. Thanks Amos and Jaron!

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.
