I am a devoted Celtics and ringer enthusiast. I've fully enjoyed listening including the live Ricky if only to gauge the level of sixer fan about simmons' non jumper, Joel's health, and everything about fultz. keep on keeping on.

Just glad to finally have a sixers podcast. Maybe too much sixers talk though?

Description

The Rights To Ricky Sanchez is a podcast that is hosted by Spike Eskin and Michael Levin and mostly, sort of about Sixers basketball.

Episode Date
Improving Without Trading Maxey, Doc Rivers To Lakers Hopes
4052

We're at the point where all the things people say about the Sixers to make fun of them are maybe true? We talk about the Doc Rivers to the Lakers soap opera and how important it is to move on, if Daryl Morey actually watches ball and whether he has a blind spot, how the Sixers can, and if they can, build into a title team without trading Maxey, and what Steph Curry's place among all-time greats is and will be.

Oh No, Star Hunting Again?
4205

The first podcast of another Sixers offseason, here we are. This is when we thrive. We talked about the end of season interviews, the rumor that Daryl Morey is going "star hunting," who Mike would trade Maxey for, whether Thybulle has any value, and which one of us can see CJ during the pod.

Sixers Get Blown Out, Down 3-2 vs Heat
3399

The Sixers couldn’t get anything going in a crucial Game 5 and lost to the Heat. The loss was so bad that Spike was unable to show up, so Mike takes the lead and is joined by friends of the pod and Liberty Ballers Alumni, Dave Rueter and Tanner Steidel.

BONUS: Amy Winehouse 'Back To Black' and Sunny Day Real Estate 'Diary' (Carl Landry Record Club Podcast)
4771

We've got a music podcast called the Carl Landry Record Club! Every week we talk about two great albums, one from us, one listener suggested. It's hosted by Spike and Mutlu (aka Tommy from Down The Shore). We thought this week's albums would resonate well in the Ricky world. You can subscribe for weekly episodes wherever you get pods (Spotify, Apple, our website). 

Albums discussed are Amy Winehouse’s ‘Back To Black’ (9:55) and Sunny Day Real Estate’s ’Diary’ (43:28). We also discuss the Broadway show MJ (35:48), and the 1994 year In music. 

Get tickets to see Mutlu and Spike for CLRC Live (with a full Mutlu show as well) on 5/20 at World Cafe Life here: https://bit.ly/TheCarlLive

This week's listener album suggestion came from Twitter user @smylesr. 

To suggest an album for CLRC, leave a review on Apple Podcasts with the artist and title (five stars always helps).

For playlists and podcasts, visit us on the web at carllandryrecordclub.com and on Twitter @CLRCPod. 

The theme song for Carl Landry Record Club is "I Should Let You Know" by Marian Hill.

This is CLRC episode #71.

The Harden Game (Sixers Tie Heat 2-2)
2939

James Harden hit some big shots down the stretch, Danny Green stayed hot (while predictably missing the free throw on that four point play), and Joel Embiid attracted more attention that the Heat could spare. The series is tied 2-2, but it hasn't begun yet because the road team hasn't won.

Is Embiid's Thumb Going To Ruin The Playoffs? Sixers Lose, Up 3-1 On Raptors
2647

Joel Embiid's thumb injury seemed to affect his entire game, and the rest of the team followed. A James Harden takeover game wasn't in the cards, and Maxey seemed invisible for much of the game. There's no reason to worry. Is there?

Kevin Durant Picks Embiid, Raptors Series Over/Unders
3136

Spike gives Mike a chance to rescind his "Raptors in 7" pick, and then gives some over/unders for the series. We talk about Kevin Durant saying that Joel Embiid should be MVP, the new reports about Ben Simmons' swag level being at an 'all-time high," and we hit the mailbag and talk about the biggest concerns against Toronto.

Paul Reed Victory Tour, Raptors Preview
4005

Doc Rivers said it's not going to be a Paul Reed Victory Tour, but he's f**king wrong. We take a victory lap and wonder what Doc Rivers' problem is, as he was both wrong and condescending in his most recent press conference regarding B Ball Paul. Then we discuss the Raptors series, along with Matisse Thybulle's unavailability. Mike curses a lot, and makes a stunning prediction.

The Years Long Backup Center Nightmare Is Still Going On
3967

(Caution, pod is very funny) Joel Embiid was amazing and Tyrese Maxey shot the lights out, but the star of the show was how fucking terrible DeAndre Jordan was and Doc Rivers being so fixated on a soft landing spot in LA that he didn't notice. We are woozy and discuss our desperation to see B Ball Paul (now just Paul??) the Rivers to Lakers rumors, and final thoughts on the Embiid MVP bid.

We also talk about the performance of role players Shake Milton and Furkan Korkmaz, as well as Doc's refusal to Free B-Ball Paul. Then we guess who will play more games for the rest of his career, Harden or Ben Simmons.

Simmons Returns and Sixers Self-Destruct (plus a Beal Rumor)
4085

Ben Simmons returned to Philly in a Louis Vuitton hockey jersey and the Sixers got their doors blown off by the Nets as James Harden looked as bad as we could possibly imagine. We go through all of the concerns and determine which ones are playoff-valid as Mike totally keeps his cool.

Maxey Best Player Of All Time? Niang or Tobias, Rest or Regular Season
4022

Nobody figured that the player taking the biggest leap with James Harden's arrival would be Tyrese Maxey, but we are here. We also discuss the big questions for the rest of the season, will Niang take minutes from Tobias, should Embiid build in more rest days, why does Doc Rivers not play any of the centers they have, and who of Green, Joe, Furk and Shake will prevail?

The Harden Era Has Begun, Vibes Are Immaculate
4548

We discuss the first game of the Harden era, his play, and how all of the pieces fit and will continue to fit around him and Embiid. After a brief argument, Spike and Mike move on to the rumors that Joel Embiid wanted the Sixers to trade for Bradley Beal instead of Harden, that Tyrese Haliburton thought he'd be a Sixer, the teams we'd least like to face in the playoffs, and the right way to use toilet paper.

Sixers Win Six Straight, Good Vibes Only
3877

The Sixers survived a rally from the Bulls to win their sixth straight, behind Embiid's best game of the season and a red hot Furkan Korkmaz. We talk about the streak and win the good Sixers become 'real.' We barely discuss the Simmons saga, bring up an appeal to our recent banning, and get back into the bathroom in the mailbag.

Sixers Keep On Winning, Team Frustrated With Ben Simmons
3961

The Sixers were plodding along, until wins over the Hawks, Blazers and Bulls brought them to 6-2, still with the best offense in the NBA. We talk about the team hanging on for the win, Georges Niang's excellence, Furkan's skills and a gutty performance from Embiid. Then we discuss the latest in the Ben Simmons fiasco, if it's loser shit to cheer for Damian Lillard, and a Ricky contestant on Jeopardy getting banned.

The Sixers beat the Pistons, Joel Embiid played well, Shake Milton returned, but everything this season feels kind of... empty?

Ben Simmons has cleared protocols, but isn't playing due to something or other. We discuss the article from Ramona Shelbourne that talks about Simmons' fear of failure and teammate suspicions. We also discuss 538's optimistic view of the team, Isaiah Joe, B Ball Paul and Tyrese Maxey's roles, the new Ricky beer, One Beer, a double IPA from Four Fingers Brewery dedicated to Zach Lowe, and whether Spike bullies Mike.

The Ben Simmons Sh*t Show Somehow Gets Dumber
3816

Ben Simmons ended his holdout, sort of, by showing up at the Wells Fargo Center unannounced and texting Elton Brand? Or something? We try to discern what's happening, as we are trained to do so. We also discuss the win over the Nets, the winner of the Ricky Reprint shirt contest, pay tribute to Spike's late cat, and Mike decides if he wants to eat pudding that tastes like shit.

Embiid Is Back, Joe Is Here, Simmons Front Is Quiet (?)
4315

The Sixers looked much better in their second preseason game. We talk about the switch of starting point guards, and if Shake Milton will remain while Tyrese Maxey comes off the bench. We also discuss the incredible play so far of Isaiah Joe, and B Ball Paul's limited opportunities. Trade ideas for Ben Simmons with Indiana and Brooklyn surfaced this week. Finally, a mailbag about the worst way to die, dogs pooping on lawns, and Sixers rebounding, ending with another epic email from Chip Mitchell.

We discuss that, the Sixers decision not to pay him, if Morey knows a Lillard demand is on the horizon, this week's preseason games, and what we'd like to see out of Tyrese Maxey, before hitting an entertaining mailbag.

Then we welcome Coach David Thorpe of TrueHoop, to talk about his recent writing and podcasting on Ben Simmons (and the ire of a Ricky emailer), as well as his history coaching players, and Henry Abbot's reporting of the Damian Lillard situation.

We talk about the deal, the fact that he did it without an agent, and what the odds are that he opts out before the last year, and ends his career with the Sixers. We also discuss the Sixers signing Grant Riller to a two-way deal, releasing Rayjon Tucker, the odd circumstances of the Charles Bassey contract, Ben Simmons workout videos and Minnesota rumors, and whether you're supposed to pull your pants down in the ocean when you pee.

We also discuss The Athletic's new tiers of NBA players, whether we'd rather have Seth Curry or Tobias Harris, the evolving Ben Simmons and Damian Lillard situations, and whether acai bowls are a fad.

The Sixers signed Andre Drummond (yes that Andre Drummond), Georges Niang, and re-signed Kork, but have been otherwise quiet. Is it just the calm before the Lillard storm, or are they losing ground in the East? We talk about that, Embiid's super max, and which Sixer would take a lesser deal because he just started dating a girl he thinks he really likes.

What Does The Bucks Title Mean For The Sixers?
3557

The Milwaukee Bucks won the NBA championship behind a herculean effort from Giannis (and Jrue Holiday by his side). What does it say about the present and future Sixers? We also discuss Ben Simmons' birthday (and Embiid's lack of public well wishes), the Al Horford trade exception, which one person is most to blame for the Sixers failures, and an amazing new email from Chip Mitchell.

Daryl Morey eulogized the season, Doc Rivers said they can fix Ben Simmons, and we’re off into the first full offseason of the Morey era for the Sixers. We address some of the biggest things we were too pissed off to talk about after Game 7, including the market for Ben Simmons, if the Sixers have to trade him, which young players and veterans are most important to keep, should they consider moving on from Doc Rivers, and whether there is a market for Tobias Harris. We also discuss the Celtics head coach hiring, the Pistons winning the lottery and more.

We talk about Maxey and Curry's great games, Embiid's so-so game, and another Ben Simmons disappearance. We also discuss the Joel Embiid supermax, and Brad Stevens trading for Al Horford.

The Sixers 'Other Guys' Come Through, The Lowry Waiting Game
4376
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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

They just won't give us a break. The NBA is looking to return before Christmas, putting the draft and free agency into a very small window, and forcing the Sixers upon us again in 2020. We talk about the plan to restart and who it benefits, this year's edition of the official Enemies Of The Process rankings, Jameer Nelson's hiring, the ridiculous CNBC article about the Sixers, and most importantly, how late do people actually stay up?

Butch Walker is on the Mount Rushmore of Spike’s favorite musicians, and joined us to talk about his new album American Love Story, a rock opera about our divided country, how he’s ended up with only superfans, the two cafes in Australia named in his honor, when he knew he made it, his dog Aldo, and producing mega-acts like Green Day and Weezer. We also discussed the NBAs potential playoff setups in Orlando, as well as the players desire to have nice hotel rooms (amazingly we did not hear anything about the owners who are probably happy with whatever!).

Two Way Night: Haywood Highsmith, Shizz Alston. Blue Coats Coach & General Manager, Process Memories
2751

Delaware, where the Process still lives. We spent Friday night in Wilmington while the Sixers were losing a game we all knew they’d lose and having much more fun. We interviewed Shizz Alston, Haywood Highsmith, Blue Coats coach Connor Johnson and Blue Coats GM Matt Lilly in front of the biggest crowd in 76ers Field House history. Yes, everyone got a Jigsaw.

Thanks to Draft Kings Sportsbook, we’ve got a special bet for Fly The Process V. Download the app, go to the Promotions section, and opt in to the Ricky Special. The bet is this: the Sixers win, TJ scores more than 4.5 points, and you got +500 odds on it! You don’t even need to go on the trip. The odds are so good that they’re limiting the bet to $5.

Sixers Built For Playoffs, Bucks Are Regular Season Trash
2718

Christmas in Philadelphia was a success, as the Sixers ran the overrated, regular season Bucks right out of the building. Giannis was exposed, and Joel Embiid looked like the best player in the NBA. We talk about what we can take from the game in a positive way, and lessons the team should learn moving forward. We also talk about Mike’s three point competition with a Blue Coats player a two-way night, and potential chant instructions for Fly The Process V.

We also talk about the win over the Wizards, and the struggles the Sixers continue to have with zone defense, potentially trading for Patty Mills, and the final 20 spots in the Top 100 Sixers of the 2010s.

Trade season has opened in the NBA, and there are some former Sixers who are available that could help the current club. What will it take to get them? The Sixers look half-asleep against the Heat and unable to bust their college-style loser zone, and lose their second in a row after a disappointing loss to the Nets. Finally, Mike is sick, so some old Liberty Ballers jokes and references make him feel better. We also discuss the Top 100 Sixers of the 2010s.

Tobias Harris' All-Star Case, Embiid vs. Barkley vs. Shaq, Sixers 4th Quarter Struggles

Tobias Harris has become the Sixers most reliable scorer and an above average defender, what has caused it, and does he have a better All-Star case than Ben Simmons. The net result of the Joel Embiid, his fun factor, and the Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal back and forth. We diagnose the team’s fourth quarter struggles, Spike names his favorite non-Embiid Sixers player, and we asses Elton Brand’s performance as general manager.

The Wizards game never happened. The Sixers obliterated the Cavs in what may have been Ben Simmons’ most dominant offensive performance, and then turned around and beat the Raptors, even with Joel Embiid struggling once again. We talk about Brett Brown’s demand of one three pointer and eight free throws, the malaise that has surrounded Embiid and the difference between him physically in 2016 to today, the consistency of Tobias Harris, Thybulle settling in, and whether or not Spike and Mike are actually friends.

We also discuss the newest enemy of the Process, who we will see in Indiana, and whether Joel Embiid “gets away with” a lot of stuff.

Matisse Thybulle took advantage of some playing time given to him because of a Josh Richardson injury and a Furkan Korkmaz roasting to play his best minutes of the season. We talk about the ups and downs of the Simmons and Embiid experience, the fact that Jimmy Butler won’t shut up, and Mike gets mad at an emailer.

Washed Jimmy Butler Who Just Wants To Win, Gets Roasted By Sixers
4927

Jimmy Butler, who just wants to win, and works harder than anyone, chose to play with a bunch of sixth men in Miami instead of the Sixers. In his return to to Philadelphia, he was booed lustily, and got his ass kicked by the guy he was traded for, Josh Richardson. Joel Embiid looked like himself, and the Sixers were at their best on both sides of the ball. We talk about Butler’s return, Horford’s good few games, and the first time Brett Brown ever wasn’t nice about someone. We rule on whether to once again ban Kevin O’Connor, talk about the Sixers City Edition jerseys, and the most disturbing Jigsaw of all time.

Ben Simmons Hits A Three In Sixers Win Over Knicks, Just Like We All Knew He Would
3782

We all knew that Ben Simmons was going to shoot and make a three this year, and he did, from the corner, like a boss. It was Simmons whose defensive frenzy later led the Sixers, who once again made things more difficult than they should, past the Knicks. We discuss Korkmaz vs. Thybulle, Joel Embiid’s Chernobyl syndrome, why Mike doesn’t believe in clutch (even though he believes Mike Scott is), whether Mike Muscala is now a different guy, and one of the funniest Jigsaws of all time.

After five straight road losses, the Sixers sit at 7-5, with an offense that is often times excruciating, and a defense that isn’t living up to the hype. We talk about how much is personnel, effort, execution or scheme? Will time and adjustments turn them into the championship contender we’d hoped, or will it take a change in personnel? The jigsaw makes its triumphant return, and the Lorenzo Brown mailbag is a comical blend of panic and sadness.

Also, Embiid' playing himself into shape while sitting out games, Brett Brown’s responsibility, Simmons around the rim, the revelation that is Kyle O’Quinn, some panicked emails with trade proposals, and Mike’s old player descriptions.

Furkan Korkmaz was mad that he wasn’t playing enough so he wanted to be traded, the Sixers then didn’t pick up his rookie option. He became an unrestricted free agent, and no one wanted him, but the Sixers couldn’t find anyone else, so they re-signed him. That’s what made the game winner so sweet. We discuss the Portland game, the Horford screen, O’Quinn passing, and Anfernee Simons. We also talk about whether Embiid should cool it in a number of ways.

Joel Embiid only had to play 23 minutes, Josh Richardson was an animal on defense, and Al Horford rang the bell. We talk about the play of each starter, and the bench, which featured Furkan Korkmaz for nearly 20 minutes, Kyle O’Quinn shooting threes, and neither Neto nor Burke till the very end.

3405

“Give me the 2020 second round, and I’ll make an NBA champion.” - Michael Levin - The Sixers traded up with the Boston Celtics to take a player from the University Of Washington… again. The 76ers exchange the 24th and 33rd picks to select Matisse Thybulle at 20, with the Celtics knowing the they were interested in the defensive standout. To Spike’s dismay, the Celtics took Carsen Edwards with the 33rd pick.
