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

Never missing a chance for perfect timing, it was revealed this week that the Sixers are asking to use public funding to help build a new arena in Philadelphia. We discuss the outrageous idea, and how and why they want it to happen. We talk about the names that have been floated as Sixers coach, while we wait for front office upheaval. Finally, we discuss the NBA's strike, the responsibility of athletes, and clean out the Lorenzo Brown Mailbag.

Josh Harris said he was going to do a deep dive into what went wrong with the Sixers and change it. Elton Brand, who is apparently not one of those things, gave some hints as to what might change. We talked about Brand's comments, the three key people he'll make decisions on (aside from the coach), and the constant ass backwards way the team decides things. We say farewell to Brett Brown, and Thea Gallagher, Sixers fan, Ricky person, clinical psychologist, assistant professor at Penn, and Director of the outpatient clinic at The Center for Treatment and Study of Anxiety joins us to tell you how to get through the pain of being a Sixers fan.

The Sixers fired Brett Brown on 4:59pm, August 24th, 2020. Brett was a good coach and a great guy and went through all of this with us. We'll have a full reaction podcast on the 25th, but we wanted to post our interviews with Brett. The first is from April of 2015, the second from Live Ricky IV, when he was inducted into the Process Hall Of Fame, in September 2019.

The Sixers were swept in the first round by the Celtics, and the team thinks it can get away with just changing the coach. Nope! We explain why everybody gotta go. Alonzo Jones of the Corner Three Newsletter joins us to join in the fun. Thanks for listening Celtics fans! Fuck off!

We just tried to have some fun on this one. At least they didn't quit? Maybe? The Sixers were in the game, but go down 3-0 to the Celtics in their first round playoff series. Mike continues to do the podcast in darkness, and now lays out how dumb he thinks everyone is. For the second half of the podcast, we surprise Mike with a special appearance from Andrew Sharp of Greatest Of All Talk (which you have to pay for). Sixers Adam had to cancel so the Sharp surprise both delighted and infuriated Mike.

Mike has finally broken. Doing the show in the dark, probably naked, Mike questions how we got here, and why we're still here, after an embarrassing blowout loss to the Celtics to go down 2-0 in their first round series. Then Andrew Unterberger joins us, who cannot see Mike, as he is sitting in the dark. Enjoy this one, Celtics fans. Fuck you guys.

Joel Embiid came out dominating, the Sixers came out hitting shots, but couldn't hold on to the ball, and were unable to take advantage. The Sixers were unable to get the ball to Embiid down the stretch, Alec Burks was their go-to guy, and Jayson Tatum had a great third quarter as the Sixers went down 1-0 to the Celtics. We discuss the game, and Mike O'Connor joins us to talk adjustments, the development of Tatum/Brown vs. Embiid/Simmons, and the most controversial tweet of 2020.

Once again, the Sixers will meet the Celtics in the playoffs. We go through the matchups, discuss how the team will once again torture us, and give our predictions. ESPN's Zach Lowe joins us (finally) to talk about the Sixers team, how we got here, what could happen in the future, and the Celtics series. We also discuss how Zach does his job, and whether he can handle more than one beer.

The Sixers locked up the six-seed and a first round matchup against the coaching-for-his-job Brad Stevens and the Boston Celtics. We talk about the takeaways from the Suns and Raptors games, including improved play from Horford, Richardson and Harris. We discuss Joel Embiid's appearance on the JJ Redick podcast, and give a live celebration as the Thunder lock up a victory that gives their 2020 first round pick to the Sixers.

Ben Simmons is likely out for the rest of the season, Joel Embiid left the Portland game with an ankle injury, so Josh Richardson had the best game of his life. We discuss how the team might operate with Simmons out and what their ceiling is, how they got into this situation, what non-Sixers teams we'd want to win the championship, Stan Van Gundy as Sixers coach, and some hockey guy.

Joel Embiid looks great, Shake Milton hit a game-winner, but we are somehow agonized by watching all three Sixers games since the return. We discuss the positives and negatives. Then The Ringer's Dan Devine, John Gonzalez, and Haley O'Shaughnessy, formerly known as Heat Check, join us to talk Sixers, Raptors, Philly fans, The Bubble, and who they would secret ban.

We waited four months, and the Sixers were nice enough to play all of the greatest hits in their return to the court. Ben isn't shooting! Why did Brett do that? What is wrong with Horford? Why do they look so miserable? We discuss the Sixers return, take some excellent mailbag questions, and talk to Tina Dixon Spence of Buddha Babe, whose children's pajamas store is making our new masks. Get the masks here, only 250 of them!
