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

Joel Embiid finally appears on the Ricky. It took a global pandemic, and a weird NBA hostage scenario in Orlando, and who knows what else, but here he is. We talk to The Process about his relationship with fans, his free throw wedgies, his relationship with Ben Simmons, his new Under Armour signature shoe The Embiid 1 (out in September), whether Dario will ever come over, and much more. We also preview the Bubble season but who cares?

We discuss the big news out of Orlando, that Ben Simmons has been playing power forward exclusively, and Shake Milton has been the primary point guard, its effects on the team and why it took so long. The former-forever Sixers guard Larry Hughes joins us to talk about life after the NBA, playing with Iverson, playing with LeBron, the Orlando Bubble and the Nelly video for Dilemma. You can hear Larry on the Bleav In Wizards podcast with Matt Modderno.
