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. The Rights To Ricky Sanchez is presented by Draft Kings Sportsbook.
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. The Rights To Ricky Sanchez is presented by Draft Kings Sportsbook.
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! The Rights To Ricky Sanchez podcast is presented by Draft Kings Sportsbook.
Joel Embiid finally appears on the Ricky. It took a global pandemic, and a weird NBA hostage scenario in Orlando, and who knows what else, but here he is. We talk to The Process about his relationship with fans, his free throw wedgies, his relationship with Ben Simmons, his new Under Armour signature shoe The Embiid 1 (out in September), whether Dario will ever come over, and much more. We also preview the Bubble season but who cares? The Rights To Ricky Sanchez is presented by Draft Kings Sportsbook.
