The Rights To Ricky Sanchez: The Sixers (76ers) Podcast
At the All-Star break, the Sixers are leading the Eastern Conference, so the grades... are pretty good. We grade every Sixers player who has played meaningful minutes, as well as Doc Rivers and Daryl Morey. We discuss our role in educating the masses on the Ship Of Theseus in Wandvision, the great hacking of B-Ball Paul, some controversy in Mike's fantasy basketball league, and the mailbag includes a listener desperate to get one of the most ridiculous tattoos in history.

If you close your eyes, you can hear us doing the version of the pod that we'd have done if they lost... but they didn't. A celebration of the first place Sixers and Joel Embiid who go into the All-Star Break first in the conference. Tobias Harris was the closer, and Donovan Mitchell whines his way into the locker room. Spike explains why both Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell are frauds, we discuss how much is too much for Kyle Lowry, and Doc Rivers' last laugh with the all bench lineups.

The Sixers loss to the Cavs seemed to just be 'one of those games,' but did expose some larger issues for the team. We talk about those issues, Ben Simmons' continued offensive surge, whether the Sixers should consider trading for Kyle Lowry or Victor Oladipo, the comparisons of the current Sixers to the 08-10 Phillies, and what to do about urinal stage fright.
 
* Michael Bivins is not on the podcast as we said in the intro. We did have some technical issues and he will be on in a later episode.

Thank goodness that's over. The Sixers split against the Raptors, but looked pretty ugly doing it. We discuss the Raptors defense that wreaked havoc on Joel Embiid, Tobias Harris the finisher, and the welcome return of Shake Milton and the real Furkan Korkmaz. We discuss the importance of Ben Simmons' aggressive play and making the All-Star team, Tobias' snub, whether they should pursue Boogie Cousins, and whether James Harden is now in the MVP race. Finally, an intense Relationship Advice segment and a mailbag.

After several other Joel Embiid games, we had The Joel Embiid game, a 50 point masterpiece against the Bulls. We discuss Joel's growth and journey, as Mike slowly devolves into the most typical of Philadelphia fans to describe him. We also discuss Tobias Harris' growth as playmaker and rebounder, the varying perspectives on Danny Green, what Daryl Morey thinks about the Sixers three pointer deficit, and the departure of former Eagles quarterback, Carson Wentz.

The Sixers ended their three game losing streak as only they can do it, in an ugly win over the Rockets. We discuss performances from Seth Curry, Tyrese Maxey, and Isaiah Joe, while Joel Embiid's worst game of the year went for 30-11-9. We follow up with Joel's back issues, Thybulle's best game, whether Simmons' offense means he can play more minutes at center, two potential guard targets, shitting ice cream, who the next Sixers "snake guy" will be, B Ball Paul in Orlando, and the worst NBA player who could win MVP after curing cancer.

The Sixers have lost two straight on the road, and glaring was the production from bench units and their three point deficit. We talk about the reasons for both and whether it's a coaching change, a bench addition or a core change that will remedy them both (along with debating the merits of Devin Booker and DeAndre Ayton). We discuss possibly adding Nemanja Bjelica, a parents themed relationship advice, another round of Jokic vs. Embiid, another MVP discussion, and where you stand when you pee.

The Sixers are proving they can win games when they're not at their best, with a suffocating fourth quarter defense. We discuss accepting that this is just how good Embiid is, what will make a successful road trip, whether the Sixers would rather acquire a small ball five or a point guard, whether they can acquire Kyle Lowry, which Sixers player would be the best Valentine, foods from our youth, extreme heat vs. extreme cold, and which NBA team could survive best without its top player.

It wasn't the test we were looking forward to, but the Sixers starting lineup moved to 13-0 with a convincing win over the Nets. We discuss Embiid's continued dominance, Simmons'  (maybe) best game so far this season and whether Mike will put any respect on Danny Green's name. We debate a potential ban in the Morey family, and bring on Andrew Unterberger to talk about a column he never wrote that would currently be roasted every minute on the internet, along with whether he'll ever admit he's wrong.

The Sixers got caught in a trap game against Portland, and even though they lost, survived a scary fall from Joel Embiid. Even in the forgettable game, Embiid's 25 point 2nd quarter was something to behold. We discuss how the Sixers will guard the Brooklyn Nets, if Tobias Harris is 75% of Bradley Beal, the NBA All-Star voting, and if Embiid's style of scoring by getting to the line can hold up in the playoffs.

The Dan Burke Revenge Game! January is our month, and the Sixers close it out with a stunning victory led by a 2-3 zone (RIP John Chaney), Furkan Korkmaz and Matisse Thybulle. We discuss whether Joel Embiid is better than Giannis Antetokounmpo, whether the Sixers should trade for JJ Redick, an on-court challenge from two losers, and the science of who picks up the ball after a made basket. Check out our website for the $TOBI shirt on Monday.

In a war of MVP leaders and MVP wannabes, the Sixers showed they belonged with the Lakers, and ultimately won on a game winner from Tobias Harris, who we've always believed in. We discuss the big shot, LeBron James' (debated) cheap shot on Joel Embiid, a Spike declaration of war, Ben Simmons coming to play, and the rest of the game. We also discuss "Championship or Bust," the odds of the top eight MVP candidates and who actually can overtake Embiid. We also discuss a stunning trade proposal from an Australian listener.

Ben Simmons has woken up. In the 4th quarter against the Celtics, Simmons came alive and kept it going into the Pistons game. We discuss the new and improved Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid's continued, improving and consistent domination, and their comments about each other afterward. Then we dip into the mailbag and compare these Sixers to the Doc Rivers Celtics, share some other roommate stories from listeners, and whether the almost-Harden trade could be an Iverson-almost-trade like moment.

Joel Embiid's MVP case grows by the game, as he quietly dominates again on both ends of the court. We discuss the differences in Embiid's game this year compared to previous seasons, the argument for keeping Shake Milton coming off the bench, the directions Ben Simmons' career could go and the Draymond Green comparison, Simmons confirmation bias, who is the smelliest NBA player, and some personal bad roommate stories.

The Sixers are positioned due to contact tracing, but we're talking about Shake Milton's bully-like performance against the Grizzlies, what is up with Ben Simmons on the offensive end, and Mike's never-ending commitment to the development of Matisse Thybulle. Then we bring on Corner Three Newsletter writing, James Harden desiring Alonzo Jones to talk about the Sixers pursuit of a star in the future, Delco vs. South Philly and whether faith in Daryl Morey is still solid.

The James Harden trade saga is over, and he did not get traded to the Sixers for Ben Simmons. We discuss the trade that didn’t happen (37:22), how we feel that it didn’t happen, the future of the team, Simmons, and trust in Daryl Morey. But first (2:28), we talk about the sweep of Miami, and the amazing performances from Shake Milton, Tyrese Maxey, Joel Embiid and Isaiah Joe.

While the situation that led up to it was regrettable, Tyrese Maxey's 39 point performance against the Nuggets will live on forever. We talk about Maxey's game, point Danny Green, Isaiah Joe letting them fly, and the NBA protocols that led to a game being played with seven active Sixers. We also go back in time to talk about our 2017 draft takes, whether Simmons could prefer Houston, and when it stopped being embarrassing to admit you met someone online.

The Sixers lost to the Nets, but we aren’t stressing, talking about good games from Shake Milton and Tyrese Maxey, Joel Embiid’s performance against the Wizards and whether he’s playing too many minutes, whether current Ben Simmons is better than prime Andre Iguodala, we rate the Eagles in-game tank against Washington, and talk about potential trades for Kyle Lowry or Zach LaVine.

The Sixers sit alone at the top of the Eastern Conference, with the offense building and the defense humming. We discuss the emergence of Tobias Harris and Mike's necessary apologies, the continued dominance and MVP case for Joel Embiid, the Ben Simmons three and more. We take arguments from Army members and PhD holders in the Tank vs. Babies debate, get a read on Mike's Harden Trade Monitor (and if Harden would stay in Houston), and some important relationship advice.
