Joel Embiid has a sprained shoulder and is out for who knows how long. Ben Simmons has a back injury that the Sixers are lying about. The Sixers lost on the road to the Cleveland fucking Cavaliers and nobody seemed to care except Kyle O’Quinn, who somehow is still on the team even though he asked to leave. But at least we figured out how the Sixers are so much better at home, and it has to do with electronic rims. We just need to do the process just two or three more times.” - Tony T

Ben Simmons had a back injury but the Sixers let him play anyway, and now they not only lost a game to the Bucks but Simmons for likely an extended period of time. We discuss an organizational ethos that is to blame for repeated instances of carelessness with player injuries, what the ceiling of the team without Simmons is, the return of Bryan Colangelo Relationship Advice, and the Sixers’ decision to raise ticket prices substantially for a second consecutive year. Flip The Switch, the replacement to the Lottery Party is April 11th at Underground Arts and on sale now at this location.

The Sixers returned from the All-Star break and Joel Embiid answered the call with one of his most dominant nights of the season against the Brooklyn Nets. We discuss Embiid’s night, the impact of the two new Sixers, Josh Richardson and Tobias Harris’ underwhelming nights, and Al Horford’s place on the team. We also discuss Embiid and Simmons’ newfound love over the all-star break, the Sixers as the Thunder, and Horford as Foles.

While the Ricky is off for All-Star break, we're posting some of the older episodes you may have forgotten. Today's is from Thursday, July 2nd, 2015, reacting to Sam Hinkie's trade with the Kings that brought the Sixers two first round pick swaps, a first round pick, and Nik Stauskas.

The Sixers beat the Clippers convincingly, and we never doubted that this was possible. This entire season, we’ve all been very positive. Al Horford started the game on the bench, Furkan Korkmaz had the best zero point game ever, and the Sixers go into the All-Star break all smiles. We discuss how seriously you should take the Joel Embiid Instagram Jimmy Butler fiasco (Spike says pretty seriously), an amazing story of Process long distance love, why Philadelphia sports fans are so deranged, and much more. April 11th, 2020, save the date.

Furkan Korkmaz is the only player on the Sixers to score 30 points in consecutive games this year, which is amazing and a true joy, but is it enough to make the Sixers not so painful to watch? Hard to say. We talk about Joel Embiid’s game, with a line better than the eye test, their inability to find a way to make use of Al Horford, whether we’re going to want all of this time back when we’re on our death beds, buyout candidate Tyler Johnson, GRIII and Alec Burks taking five days to get to the team, and more.

Another trade deadline passes, and the Sixers say hello to Glen Robinson III and Alec Burks, goodbye to James Ennis, Trey Burke and three second round picks, and then hello to a second round pick. Then they got their asses handed to them in Milwaukee. We discuss how the Sixers did at the deadline compared to the rest of the league, the horrible performance from the team and Embiid against the Bucks, Spike’s opinion about ownership, the comments from Horford and Embiid and the Josh Richardson-led team meeting, and whether all of this is our fault (it is). April 11th, save the date. Read Sixers Adam’s trade deadline diary and review here.

After the Sixers loss in Boston to the Celtics, we discuss whether the team has the ability and personnel to be able to bring the kind of energy and execution needed to win a championship, why Joel Embiid looks as passive as he does, and whether anything can happen at the trade deadline to remedy it. We go into the SixersAdam Trade Machine to propose and debate three different potential Sixers trades. We talk about Matisse Thybulle’s exclusion from the Rising Stars game and his agent’s comments, a former NBA executive sort of saying the name, and if Zhaire Smith the player is worth more than his value on the open market.

Joel Embiid is back, but doesn’t look quite right yet, Shake Milton had the Shake Milton game but unfortunately it was in a loss to one of the worst teams in the league. We discuss the questionable defensive efforts on the road, the upcoming trade deadline, Ben Simmons’ play since Embiid has come back, and which Academy Award nominated movie the Sixers would be. We also discuss the passing of Kobe Bryant, and the complexities of idolizing people you barely know. We also play the final Tony Toni Tatone cover song.

The Sixers dominated LeBron James, Anthony Davis and the Lakers on Saturday, bringing to light questions of how to reintroduce Joel Embiid, what the ceiling of the team really is, and what Simmons and Embiid can to do maximize the team’s championship potential. We also discuss 538’s new ranking that has the Sixers as the most likely team to win the Finals, if Shake Milton can be a regular contributor, and what will ultimately determine Burke vs. Neto. We also play some of the newest cover versions of Tony Toni Tatone’s newest hit. Note: this podcast was recorded before, and without the knowledge of the passing of Kobe Bryant. We offer our sincere condolences to the friends and family of Kobe.

It’s better to have both Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid, but can we see the version of Ben Simmons we saw against the Nets with Joel Embiid in the game? What will it take to bring out the best version of both players, and why is it so hard to have an honest, all encompassing conversation about Ben Simmons? We talk about Furkan Korkmaz’s development, Tobias Harris’ consistency, trade leaks and rumors, and the Toni Tony Tatone Cover Song Contest for “You Don’t F**k Wit’ Me (I Won’t F**ck Wit’ You).

The trade deadline is coming! The Sixers Adam Trade Machine is here! The Sixers continue to manage to take just all all of the fun out of basketball, and still win a couple of games, Furkan Korkmaz is the best player on the team, Markelle Fultz had a triple double and a game winner on the road against the Lakers, Mike Scott and Al Horford might be washed, and Sixers Adam makes his first appearance on the Ricky to propose some trade ideas including one for a high level point guard.

January 16, 2020
The Sixers pulled out a win at home over the Nets with a strong fourth quarter, in a game that featured many of the problems and issues they’ve had all season long. Even though it’s after a win, Mike sounds tortured and concerned, as we talk about what the team is, and what they could be. We discuss the job Brett Brown has done this year, what is and is not his fault, and if he could lose his job before the end of the season. Finally, we talk about Joel Embiid’s new shoe and piece in the Player’s Tribune.

The Sixers problems on the road, and creating offense in the half-court continued in Dallas after one of their best first half performances of the season. Can the Sixers adjust with the personnel they have or is a trade necessary? We diagnose the issues on offense and defense, talk about potential trade targets and who might go, and dip into the mailbag for some questions about Elton Brand, cloning Sixers players, Uncut Gems and more. The amazing “Adopt Don’t Shop” hoodie, with art of Rebel done by @digrupert and “Adopt Don’t Shop” under the Ricky logo will be available on January 18th at our t-shirt store for two weeks only, and then a limited supply in-store at Kinetic Skateboarding. It’s a high quality Independent brand hoodie, and proceeds will benefit Providence Animal Center.

Joel Embiid will be reevaluated in two weeks for an injury that he inexplicably returned to the game with. Brett Brown has decided to take a blowtorch to the defensive scheme without Embiid. We’ll discuss how they’ll survive and what we can expect, and if it can secretly be good for Embiid. Oh yeah, that stupid asshole Andrew Sharp is unbanned for one episode to promote his stupid new podcast, Greatest Of All Talk, which you have to pay for? We love our Australian Ricky listeners and are sad to see what’s happening with the brush fires going on, which have destroyed a ton of land, killed millions of animals, and threaten the lives of many. Please consider a donation to the Aussie Red Cross to help the people, if you’d like to help the animals who survived but need help donate to WIRES or Wildlife Victoria.

Joel Embiid looks miserable, Al Horford looks terrible, and the Sixers are in the midst of a four-game losing streak. The players are talking about accountability, Brett Brown likes their spirit and wonders if they can flip the switch, and everyone is begging Ben Simmons to shoot threes. Is it possible for the Sixers to right the ship in a real way without major roster changes, and who needs to sacrifice and change to make it happen?

What a weird year! We look back at 2019, from the Tobias Harris trade, to the Embiid vs. Karl Anthony Townes fight, to the Jimmy Butler “film room fight,” to the Matisse Thybulle selection in the NBA Draft. From January through December, we recap and look back on all of the craziness. We welcome Sixers Adam as the newest member of the Ricky family, and Spike checks in from Indianapolis and Fly The Process V.
December 28, 2019
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.
December 26, 2019
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. Speaking of Two-Way Night, if you stop into Kinetic Skateboarding before the game, mention the name of your favorite Colangelo burner account for 20% all apparel and Vans.

Finally Furkan Korkmaz makes his appearance on the Rights To Ricky Sanchez podcast. Spike sat down with Furkan for a half hour to talk about yellow shoes, adjusting to life in the United States, the best moment of his life, and an exceptional TJ McConnell story. 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 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.

To think that we, The Ricky, would welcome Anna Horford, Al Horford’s sister on the podcast shows just how far we’ve come. Anna, younger sister of Al, and host of The Horford Happy Hour podcast, joins us to talk about growing up as Al’s sister, going from Boston to Philadelphia, what it would take to hate the Celtics, and many other Horford related topics. Anna is also brave enough to enter the Jigsaw. We also talk about Joel Embiid’s fun quotient, a Ricky engagement at the game, and a denied Hinkie t-shirt.

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 give grades to every Sixers player at the quarter-season (!!) mark of the NBA season. We grade them based on our expectations for this season, which does seem to favor Furkan Korkmaz in a lot of ways. 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.

Ways that the Sixers can get Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons opportunities on offense that aren’t post-ups or transition baskets, every single game is a nail-biter that comes down to the wire no matter who the Sixers play, where they play or how they play, Embiid playing in two back to backs, TJ McConnell’s value to the Process and return to Philadelphia, the Norvel Pelle experience, and Tobias Harris settling in to his midrange comfort zone.

Joel Embiid had the worst game of his career and then followed it up with one of his best games of the season. 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. All t-shirts are 30% off on Friday in our t-shirt store. On Friday, The Shirt will be back (in blue), Process or Die (in red), a restock of Al Horford Appreciator and our winter beanie.

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. Fly The Process V to Indianapolis for New Year's Eve is now cheaper for everyone thanks to Draft Kings Sportsbook! Each package is discounted, even if you already purchased it.

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.

Tobias Harris hasn’t made a three in weeks, the Sixers barely beat the Cavs and then lost in Orlando. We discuss the reality of the time it will take for the Sixers to come together, and what problems might not be cured with time. 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.
November 11, 2019
The Sixers have lost three in a row, their offense seems stagnant and their defense has shown some leaking. We talk about how much concern we should have, the title-readiness of the two young stars Simmons and Embiid, Matisse Thybulle’s first DNP-CD, hot Furkan and Kyle O’Quinn, and the possible of a Butler and Embiid Chernobyl type event. Also, Spike takes us deep into beef-corner with a former football writer.

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 got into a fight with Karl-Anthony Towns, and then called him a number of names on Instagram and Twitter afterward. Ben Simmons joined in, Al Horford did not, and Mike Scott really enjoyed all of it. We talk about the fight and how it can galvanize the team, the defensive efforts in the wins over the Timberwolves and the Hawks, the team’s evolution on offense, the Korkmaz game, and naming the new Victory Cigar player, as well as Frosty Freeze-Out leader.

Al Horford has been a player that we have appreciated and desired for almost a decade now. He had a huge fourth quarter to cement a Sixers win over the Pistons, and keep the team undefeated through two games. We discuss Horford’s big night, Tobias Harris’ explosive third quarter and how many threes he should shoot per game. We discuss Simmons’ attacking the rim in traffic, how heavy Josh Richardson’s jumper is, and where the Sixers might find shooting moving forward.

It was ugly at the start, but the Sixers, who are on pace to go 82-0, beat the Celtics into submission, 90s NBA style. 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. The Celtics are trash.
