Rights To Ricky Sanchez Podcast: Sixers Hire Ned Cohen And Marc Eversley, Lottery Party Looms

RTRS Image 050716

The Sixers hired some guys!

Bryan Colangelo hired a guy whose name is Ned and is almost impossible to find on the internet. It seems like he’s flirting with us. We discuss the hiring of Cohen and Eversley, what Bryan Colangelo actually does, Mike D’Antoni’s interview in Houston and what that means for Brett Brown, and we take Twitter questions.

The Lottery Party is REALLY REALLY CLOSE. All information is at the link below. If you want to order your Lottery Party shirt to pickup at the party, the deadline is 5/10. There are no exceptions.

Also, become a fan of the Liberty Ballers at The Basketball Tournament. It’s free, it’s awesome, and it’s also easy to do.

There are now TWO t-shirts. The original, and the Hinkie shirt, using a quote from his 13-page letter.

Rights To Ricky Sanchez Podcast: NBA Scout Elan Vinokurov And The Billboard

RTRS Image 042716

One of our most popular podcasts ever was with NBA Draft scout Elan Vinokurov, so we’re RUNNING IT BACK! Elan comes on the show to talk about what he (and we) got wrong and right about the 2015 Draft, and take a look at some of the bigger questions for the 2016 draft. Elan was nice enough to offer to come on twice this year, so we’ll have him on closer to the draft to get into some of the nitty gritty.

Follow Elan on Twitter @ElanVino, and visit his site at evhoops.com.

We also discuss what went into our now famous billboard.

RTRS Image 042316People have asked a lot of times, so we go over every possible free-agent target the Sixers could have this summer.

We also discuss the current NBA playoffs and give our predictions, discuss Bryan Colangelo’s appearance with Derek Bodner on Sixers Beat, once again talk about the snakiness of Jerry Colangelo, take some Twitter questions, and cryptically hint at something we won’t discuss.

All in all, a pretty full show.

RTRS Image 041616

In the first podcast not about what a disaster the Sixers organization is since Sam Hinkie stepped down, we give out some grades for the season, as well as our season awards, including LVP, MVP, and Lickface Of The Year.

We also discuss the rumors of Brett Brown’s dismissal, Bryan Colangelo’s denial, and Jerry Colangelo’s all-around snake-in-the-grassedness.

Rights To Ricky Sanchez Podcast: Picking Up The Pieces In Process & Sixers Land

RTRS 041016 Image

What a week it’s been for The Process. It’s pretty funny that our group is seen as small, but “The Process” and its proponents seem to have captured the ongoing narrative for an NBA team for the better part of three years.

In any case, this episode was recorded “live,” as Mike says, when in really means “when we’re both in the same room.” We discuss our feelings on the week, a few days later, the home court finale, which we both attended, the Josh Harris presser, the upcoming Lottery Party, and the future of the team and the podcast.

In case you were wondering, the Lottery Party is STILL ON, and will now be more massive than ever. All information by clicking the image below.

RTRS 040616 Image

Not much to say here.

There will still be a Lottery Party, which will be Sam Hinkie Appreciation Night.

Thanks for listening to our podcast. You guys are the best.

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 Present The 2016 Lottery Party At XFINITY Live!

RTRS Party Web

Date: May 17th, 2016

Time: 6pm till 10pm (all night if we get the #1 pick or if Hinkie shows up)

Place: XFinity Live, South Philadelphia

Ages: ALL

Cost: Free (parking free, but you must DOWNLOAD THIS TICKET)

**UPDATE** Given the Sam Hinkie news, we are STILL having the Lottery Party. This is Sam’s lottery. This is our tribute to Hinkie. This is even more important than before.

We will not go quietly into this goodnight.

The Place

You’ve been there, I’m sure. XFINITY Live!, which is in the parking lot of The Center, and across the street from both Lincoln Financial Field and Citizen’s Bank Park. We will have the lottery on the GIANT screen.

There IS a Phillies game on the 17th, so parking would normally not be free. You NEED TO DOWNLOAD and either print, or put on your phone, THIS FREE PARKING TICKET. Otherwise it’s $20 to park. Or you could always take the Broad Street Line.

You have to park in either LOT C or LOT D at the Wells Fargo Center. They are lots RIGHT NEXT to XFINITY Live! If you’d like to see exactly where to go in for lots C or D, GO TO THIS LINK.

RTRS Parking TicketThe T-Shirts

Every Lottery Party has a t-shirt, and this one is more culty and processy than ever!

And now that Sam has been uncerimoniously forced out, we have two shirts. One is a tribute to him.

The first is a two sided affair. The front a memory of the event. The back, a list of every process-era Sixer. As a memory of all we’ve been through. And when the shirts are printed, Sam’s name will be added to the list as a tribute.

That shirt is available for $15 for pick up at the party (CLICK TO BUY) or $20 shipped to you (CLICK TO BUY). We make no guarantees as to the arrival date for the shipping of the shirts, so if you’re going to the party, I suggest you do that so you get it in time.

If you want to order the shirt to SHIP, order by 5/6 to get it by the party. If you’re picking up the shirt, order by 5/10 to get it at the party.

There is now a SECOND shirt as a tribute to Sam. It is below. It uses a quote from Hinkie’s resignation letter. This shirt also is available for ship and pickup.

Cheat Sheet T-Shirtmaxresdefault

Giveaways

We will have some great giveaways that you’d expect (Sixers stuff, XFINITY Live! gift cards, pictures with Jake Pavorsky), but the BIG stuff is coming from our great sponsor, LL Pavorsky Jewelers (707 Walnut, always at llpavorsky.com).

Lee will be giving away the following stuff:

* The first 250 people to go greet LL at his table will receive an LL Pavorsky gift bag, including a $100 gift certificate to LL Pavorsky Jewelers.

* A unique 36″ pearl and black spinel necklace, valued at $525.

* A $250 gift card to LL Pavorsky Jewelers.

* A pair of 1.00 carat diamond stud earrings, valued at $1595.

* And the final prize, a one time only, insane, ring with “TTP” on it, fully encrusted in diamonds. A diamond TTP ring. The value on this prize is $2500+.

* And if the Sixers get the #1 pick, LL has another secret prize he will give away.

Other Stuff

Every lottery party has gotten bigger, and more fun. We’ve had the party itself on just about every local TV station, the Sixers themselves send their video and web team to OUR party, the t-shirt has been featured on Around The Horn (thanks Pablo!), and the NBA Draft. The other events have made it on just about every sports site imaginable, and still, we have one rung before Phase II. That rung is this party, the launch party to the off-season we’ve been waiting for, the Summer Of Sam.

Sam will not be directing things this summer, but it is still what HE built. What we have all sat through the last three years is for this summer. This is our lottery, and his lottery, not evil Uncle Jerry’s. We will be saluting Hinkie throughout the night.

We’ll have some other things planned (maybe a live podcast, maybe we will bring Andrew Sharp again and tar and feather him), but really this is just a place for us all to get together, have some drinks, and celebrate the fact that we made it through these three years. In spite of my father, Deadspin, Jerry Colangelo and Dick Jerardi.

See you there.

Rights To Ricky Sanchez Podcast: Future Sixer, D’Angelo Russell, Odds The Sixers Win Again & Lottery Party Shirts

RTRS Image 033016

It’s sort of perfect that the scandal (?) involving D’Angelo Russell, also involves Swaggy P. This has Sixers written all over it.

We discuss the always-was-going-to-happen Okafor for Russell trade, the recent reports about Sam Hinkie’s future with the team, the odds the Sixers win again this season, Nerlens Noel’s sadness, and basically an hour of Elton Brand and Carl Landry talk.

The Lottery Party Shirt is available! Thanks the the amazing folks at Cheesesteaktees and Mercantile 13. The theme this year is “Surviving The Process.”

It features ALL of the Sixers on the back. All of them. Every Sixer involved in the Hinkie era. They were all part of this, and we talked about every one of them like they were important. We made it through these three years, this Summer Of Sam is the payoff, and these guys are the symbol. On the front is full fledged RTRS and Liberty Ballers.

There are a bunch of errors on the image below because Spike is an idiot  but everything will be fixed for printing time.

What better way to stay cool during the SUMMER OF SAM than with this sweet t-shirt? There’s no better way.

The shirt is $15 if you want to pick it up at the party, and $20 if you want it delivered (just pick it up). It’s more expensive this  year because a) it’s two sided, and b) if we’re going to do this many, it takes more man hours which becomes more valuable. GET IT BY CLICKING HERE.

White_screen

When: May 17th, 6pm-10pm

Where: XFinity Live, Philadelphia

How Much: Free (Parking Free With This Ticket)

Ages: All

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 (as well as 250 smaller ones!). T-shirt info by the end of the month.
