The Rights To Ricky Sanchez: The Sixers (76ers) Podcast
The Sixers bench, once a weakness, has come together through development, the addition of George Hill, and... Dwight Howard? We talk about the bench's development, Furkan's next contract, Matisse Thybulle at power forward, and how wrong we were about Dwight. We discuss the on-court rhythm between Simmons and Embiid which seems better than ever, Josh Harris' troubles at Apollo Holdings, a one on one game between Maxey and Thybulle, and which Sixers moment we wish the podcast was around for.

With two straight easy wins, the Sixers have clinched a playoff birth, and continue to chase the Nets for the #1 seed in the Eastern Conference. We talk about the quality of play in the NBA this season, the play of Ben Simmons and Tyrese Maxey in the wins, as well as the consistent offense from Furkan Korkmaz. We discuss George Hill's fit so far, and playing Matisse Thybulle at the four. There are new rumors about the Sixers and Kyle Lowry, a listener wrote a Joel Embiid poem, and Daryl Morey does an impression of "High Mike."

76ers President of Basketball Operations and General Manager Daryl Morey only has one Spotify playlist, and it's 42 hours long. That's right. Daryl joined Spike and Mutlu on the Carl Landry Record Club to explain himself and go through many of the songs. This is a clip of the episode, but you can find the full hour-long episode on the Carl Landry Record Club podcast, which is available "wherever you get your podcasts" including Apple or Spotify or right here

The Sixers got swept in Milwaukee and have lost four straight. Joel Embiid is nursing a knee and a shoulder injury, Tobias Harris has a knee injury, and Ben Simmons is recovering from an illness. With the #1 seed now something they have to really work for, what are the true panic levels on injuries, seeding and vibes? Also, we talk about starting a team with Ben Simmons, Julius Randle, Brandon Ingram or Tobias Harris, whether the Bucks are title threats, Shake Milton's loser-energy and Sam Presti responds to a question about what the Thunder are doing compared to what the Sixers did.

The undermanned Sixers came within a Joel Embiid full-court prayer of sending the game to overtime. It should have counted anyway. Matisse Thybulle plays maybe his best defensive game of his career, George Hill looks like a contributor and Shake Milton continues his poor play. Mike continues to rail against availability, Furk hasn't stepped out of bounds in a while and where does Ben Simmons rank among Sixers defensive players.

If the best availability is not availability, is it actually just ability? And if that's the case, why are Denver fans so angry with Mike? The Sixers beat the Clippers to hold on to first in the East, the MVP race continues to tighten, Embiid and Simmons begin their campaigns for award season, a law school Ricky connection, and a Hofstra student makes a hostage-style video directed at the NBA commissioner.

The Nets decided they were mostly not taking part in the Eastern Conference clash, and the Sixers took advantage (even though it got hairy). We talk about the game, Embiid's knee brace, Korkmaz and Milton's place in the playoff rotation, the weirdest NBA regular season ever, we rank the Sixers' rivals, talk about the idea of Dwight Howard sympathy, and give Daryl Morey an impossible skill in evaluating draft talent.

Furkan Korkmaz got the call, and answered it against the Thunder, as two-way Furk showed all the tools. We wonder if the Process Sixers ever looked as overmatched as the current Thunder, if Anthony Tolliver will last more than one 10-day, when George Hill might actually play for the Sixers, rivisit Spike's "we are fucked" take about the Celtics in 2018, and Ben Simmons centrism.

The Sixers swept the Celtics because their team is basically a disgrace (and Joel Embiid looked like himself again). We discuss the game, the five year anniversary of the Sam Hinkie resignation letter, what lineup will close playoff games, the Jrue Holiday contract, and what a shitty disgrace the Celtics are.

We talk about the big guy's return, Tobias Harris' finishing and reassessing the value of his contract, a plea to NBA Commissioner Dave Silver to restore the sanctity of the game, remember Lou Williams' Easter game winner over the Heat and find out what fish we are.

The Sixers ended their stretch without Joel Embiid with an unbelievable record of 7-3 after their win over the Cavs. We talk about Embiid's impending return, his chance at winning the MVP, and how they'll integrate him. We discuss about Ben Simmons' struggles, and what can get him back on track, Mike decides on the Joel Embiid Sweet 16 Moments, and we disagree about JJ Redick's trade request story on his podcast. Also, Mike got verified on Twitter, thanks Bob.

The Sixers Embiidless winning streak came to an end, but Tobias Harris and Danny Green continued their hot shooting and solid play. We discuss that, Doc Rivers' potential playoff rotation stubbornness, Ben Simmons' post All-Star break offense, whether George Hill is in closing lineups, how much LeMarcus Alrdidge helps the Nets, whether B-Ball Paul should play regular minutes and what the NBA will do to stop the blatant tanking going on.

Another trade deadline is in the books and Daryl Morey did a very normal thing. The Sixers traded for George Hill, didn't trade for Kyle Lowry, and sent out a few second round picks and Tony Bradley in the process. We discuss the Sixers deadline moves and non-moves, the rest of the NBA and how that will work out, and what this all means for B-Ball Paul.

We talk about the good and the bad of the Bucks loss, the Knicks win, we take our temperature on the trade deadline, an all-star mailbag, and we preview our Twitter Spaces discussion with Daryl Morey and his friend Hugh.

The "Other Guys" on the Sixers dominated again, sending the Spurs to the their worst loss of all time. We joyfully discuss the win, then play "dark side vs. light side" with all of the aspects of the Joel Embiid injury, a shocking new development in the Embiid tattoo saga, whether the NBA should do something to make the league less three-heavy, why Daryl Morey is insisting to talk to us on Twitter Spaces, and do Danny Green and Spike both have old guy young guy hair,.

Without Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons it seemed like we were in for a loss, but we were met with the Tony Bradley Game, The Matisse Thybulle Game, The Dwight Howard Game. We talk about the very nice victory, as well as Tyrese Maxey's struggles to get off the bench. We discuss the one year anniversary of the NBA shut down, whether Mike will get a haircut, if Kyle Lowry will be traded, the prospect of adding Will Barton, what the NBA would look like without a three point line, and which Western Conference team would be the most fun to beat in the Finals.

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.

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.

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.

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.
