The Rights To Ricky Sanchez: The Sixers (76ers) Podcast

Sam Hinkie has a new company that has nothing to do with sports, and Mark Eversley of the Sixers Front Office Collaborators got new jobs, and we talk about them both. We discuss the anxiety of news and not going outside, who Ben Simmons should watch, and Mike gives some early draft takes. Then Alyssa Litman and Taylor Misiak from The Table Flipping Podcast join us to talk Reality TV, The Bachelor, 90 Day Fiance, realty vs. game shows, and the season finale of Taylor’s TV show with Lil Dickey, Dave. Also Taylor likes JJ Redick.

Philadelphia legend G. Love joined the pod to talk about his love for the Sixers and Allen Iverson, why Philadelphians care so much about being from Philly, the Love From Philly Festival and the current situation for musicians. We also discuss the alternate-timeline Sixers playoffs with AU, discuss this week’s Carl Landry Record Club selection and name one for next week as well. Finally we discuss why Mike and Howard Eskin attended the same bachelor party.

An oddly timed profile on Ben Simmons talked about his health, attitude, and of course, why he doesn’t shoot three point shots. We discuss what Simmons said, and what the people around him said. We go over the six Al Horford trades that SixersAdam proposed, added a new album to the Carl Landry Record Club, discussed handsome NBA players, why Philly doesn’t have a WNBA team, what the best cereal is, who is the better dancer, and what it would take for Mike to allow Howard Eskin on the pod.

The 72 hours have elapsed, and the JJ Redick story closes with some controversy, as Spike and Mike work through the details. We catch up with Andrew Unterberger, who has continued to follow the Sixers season in an alternate reality, and start their 4 vs. 5 seed series with the Heat today. We come back to the Ricky Record Club (now named Carl Landry Record Club) to review Margo Price, discuss the new Fiona Apple album, and dip into the mailbag to discuss the meeting of Jimmy Butler and Bryan Colangelo.

Somehow during the NBA’s awful H.O.R.S.E. competition, a brief Twitter flurry between Spike and JJ Redick resulted in a few jabs back and forth, and an unfulfilled promise from Redick. What will be the consequences? We discuss Michael Jordan’s upcoming docuseries, legacy and the need to see basketball players to appreciate them, whether history starts at 2002, the Jigsaw Finals and world champion, and the first subject of the Ricky Record Club, Margo Price’s “All American Made.”

Somehow in all of our podcasts we’ve never discussed the idea of Joel Embiid needing to discover what his identity of a basketball player is (thanks Uriah!). We discuss that, we do the semifinals of the Jigsaw Final Four, decide on doing the weekly Ricky Record Club, revisit the Ship Of Theseus, discuss a Ricky mention in a Phd dissertation at the University of Michigan, sitings of both Bryan and Jerry Colangelo, and the greatest comedy duos in movies and television.

He’s finally emerged! Bryan Colangelo got his first interview since being ousted, shamefully, from the Sixers, as he was a candidate (??) for the Bulls President of Basketball Operations job. We, gleefully, discuss the possibility of Colangelo coming back to the NBA, and some of our favorite burner moments. We discuss the NBA and MLB’s plans to get back to action and how realistic and entertaining they are, some great news about the Jigsaw finals, and another rousing 50% Basketball Mailbag that ends with “I love you.”

What would have happened if the Sixers never traded up for Markelle Fultz? We discuss the possible and most likely outcomes of the scenario that Derek Bodner wrote about in The Athletic. We give our memories of Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett, and Kobe Bryant as they’re inducted into the Basketball Hall Of Fame. The Jigsaw Final Four is set as Mike does the Elite Eight matchups, a new Vallone’s Deli commercial and a mailbag about this offseason, what to do when the quarantine ends, booze, Kevin Ollie, all-time role-players, the best pizza topping combination and a role players.

A report out of New York says that Leon Rose is interested in hiring Elton Brand as the Knicks general manager, we discuss that, why the Sixers owners are not good sports owners, who we’d opt to trade between Milton and Thybulle if we had to trade one with Horford, we get to the Elite Eight in the Field Of 64 Jigsaws, and the 50% basketball mailbag brings Dario home, figures out who to amnesty, wonders if mead is vegan, and wonders if Spike or Mike would win a one-mile race.
