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

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.

The Rights To Ricky Sanchez is presented by Draft Kings Sportsbook.

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.

Daryl Morey and his friend and famed fiction author Hugh Howey joined us for a 45 minute chat on Twitter Spaces, talking about too many threes in the NBA and how to fix it, how to judge what championship odds a team has, why Mike isn't verified on Twitter and Taylor Swift. It was a good time!

Sure, the Sixers blew a 19 point lead against the Bucks, but we'll find a way to make it a moral victory. 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.
 
* 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.
