Rights To Ricky Sanchez Podcast: Sixers Draft Redux And NBA Free Agency Primer

RTRS Image 062616

Now that we’ve had 60 hours to digest it, we revisit the draft and and to appropriately grade the job Bryan Colangelo has done.

We address the Sixers prospects in free-agency, and the (still) present glut of big men.

Also, we’d like to acknowledge the very sad passing of 21 year-old Zachary Simmons, Ben Simmons’ cousin, who was killed in a hit and run accident in New Jersey on Saturday.

Rights To Ricky Sanchez Podcast: Sixers Draft Simmons, Luwawu, Korkmaz! Hinkie Died For This

RTRS Image 062416

A bittersweet draft, for sure. We got everything we wanted, Ben Simmons, Timothe Luwawu and Furkan Korkmaz. But we wish Sam Hinkie was here to have it with us.

We discuss the draft, the flurry of trade rumor activity beforehand, and the roster construction for the Sixers moving forward.

Rights To Ricky Sanchez Podcast: Noel Teague Trade Rumors And Sixers Draft Countdown

RTRS Image 060416

Thank you rumor mill! If there’s anything that screams “Sam Hinkie is gone,” loud and from the rooftops, it’s a rumor that the Sixers are considering trading Nerlens Noel for a year of Jeff Teague.

**NEW!! Lick The Rights To Ricky Sanchez on FACEBOOK (account is run by new intern Kristin).**

We break down the trade rumors, speak with SB Nation’s Ricky O’Donnell (follow at @SBN_Ricky and read at SB Nation) about his thoughts on the draft and what the Sixers should do, celebrate the YouTube Big Board’s influence on the draft (hi Marquese Chriss!) and talk about a process moment with a big-time musician.

Rights To Ricky Sanchez Podcast: Sixers Have Five Chances To Win One

RTRS Image 040316
On some level, winning only nine games this season would be appropriate. If you’re going to be bad, you might as well be all-time bad.

On another level, giving people one last chance to take shots at the team is something we’d probably all like to avoid.

We discuss the final five games, the loss to the Pacers, Villanova’s big win, Buddy Hield’s disappearing act and place in the draft, Sam Hinkie squatting 500 pounds, and take a boat load of Twitter questions.

We’re almost there, gang.

Rights To Ricky Sanchez | Liberty Ballers 2016 NBA Lottery Party At XFinity Live

RTRS Party Web

YOU KNOW WE HAD TO DO IT!

When: May 17th, 6pm-10pm

Where: XFinity Live, Philadelphia

How Much: Free (Parking Free With This Ticket)

Ages: All

The Rights To Ricky Sanchez / Liberty Ballers Lottery Party is going to be even bigger, and even better in 2016. We had to find a place where we wouldn’t run out of room. We found one.

The 2016 Lottery Party will be at XFinity Live in South Philly. It will be Tuesday, May 17th, from 6pm until 10pm. It will be free to get inside. It will benefit (in part) The Alzheimer’s Association of the Delaware Valley, and RAINN. There will be giveaways, including a big one from our very own LL Pavorsky Jewelers.

They said we won’t run out of space at this place, but let’s try.

RTRS Parking Ticket

But most of all, we will be together. We will eat, drink, be merry, boo Doug Collins and cheer when the Sixers get “one, four, eleven.” We’re going to watch the NBA Lottery on that GIANT SCREEN at XFinity Live.

Parking will be FREE, but because there’s a Phillies game that night, you will need the FREE parking ticket provided by XFinity Live. Just CLICK HERE to get it, or click that giant thing above this that says CLICK HERE. Print out and bring the parking ticket with you, or download it to your phone. But probably just bring the print out.

Again, YOU NEED THE TICKET FOR THE FREE PARKING.

Yes there will be t-shirts from Cheesesteaktees.

Yes my wife will go.

No, Rebel will not go because he hates everyone.

More info is coming.

Let’s grow this orchard. On the MOON.

Rights To Ricky Sanchez Podcast: Joel Embiid Had A Setback, Sixers Fans In Panic

GettyImages-453264538

This is what we had written for the podcast that was supposed to be recorded on Friday.

Well, maybe they want Dario now.

There are some rumors that the Sixers would like Dario Saric to come over to the NBA this season. Are these rumors for real? Who knows, but let’s talk about them anyway! We also discuss the team’s decision to not say “Wells Fargo,” Andre Iguodala, NBA Finals MVP, Spike’s run-in with Brett Brown, and our ever-changing-for-n0-reason Big Boards for the NBA Draft!

My how plans have changed. Thanks Woj! Joel Embiid had a setback.

SETBACK!!

What does it all mean? How should you feel? Is it all over? Do you trust the process? Why did Spike have a mental breakdown on Saturday night? Is it related to the fact that he can’t turn his air conditioning off?

It’s all in today’s Ricky.
