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.
The Sixers are going to win it all again. This decision is made after their first Bubble scrimmage against Memphis. We discuss Simmons' shooting, Milton's playmaking and zombie optimism. Then Houston Rockets GM and Process Godfather Daryl Morey joins us to talk about Sam Hinkie, Robert Covington, front office decision making, coaching and corn hole.

Chuck Klosterman showed up to the podcast with two Miller High Lifes in hand, ready to talk about whatever we wanted. We discussed his weird, cool book of short stories Raised In Captivity which is now out now on paperback, Ben Simmons, the NBA bubble, what Covid-19 would have been like 25 years ago, the legacy of Grantland, Bill Simmons, and comparing UFOs and The Shining.
