Finally, a talk about the draft on the Ricky that involves two people! Spike has finally watched a bunch of YouTube, and has some barely informed opinions.
We go over who the Sixers may pick in the draft, take some fantastic Twitter questions, talk about the current NBA Playoffs, Bill Simmons’ exit from ESPN, a jigsaw and more!
Thanks for buying so many Lottery Party shirts. We can tell you, there will be A LOT of people there. If you never ordered, you can still get one to be sent from Cheesesteaktees, and we’ll have a VERY LIMITED number of shirts at the party.
Of course the RTRS/Liberty Ballers is May 19th at Buffalo Wild Wings at Grant and the Boulevard. All info is HERE.
Next, the podcast is a SWEET one. Of course, we talk about Marcus Mariota. We discuss the NBA R.O.Y. vote, the social media dude from the Rockets getting canned, the loss of Chad Iske, the NBA playoffs and former Sixers still playing, the reports that the Sixers like D’Angelo Russell, Dario Saric and some Twitter questions.
Another season in the books, and it was one of the best in the last decade, perhaps the best.
The fact that we’re saying that about a team that won 18 games says a lot about a lot of things. We’ll let you decide what those are.
We give out year end awards, including Team MVP, The Ricky Sanchez Award, Lickface Of The Year, and much more (including a rap song by Hollis Thompson).
A reminder, The RTRS/Liberty Ballers Lottery Party is May 19th at Buffalo Wild Wings in the Great Northeast, all the info is HERE. The t-shirts are just FIVE BUCKS?! and available HEREfrom Cheesesteaktees. Don’t miss out by waiting too long.
Also, become a fan of the Liberty Ballers team in The Basketball Tournament HERE.
The t-shirts are amazing and are available for $5 for pickup at the party HERE, or for out-of-towners, for $15 HERE.
On today’s Ricky, we take a bunch of questions from Twitter, a TANKATHON update, Spike goes in on Liberty Ballers commenters, Mike reveals which questions he wanted to ask Brett Brown and didn’t, and some talk about Bill Simmons recent Sixers writings.
I don’t know where to start. Let’s just start here.
First, the place, it’s at Buffalo Wild Wings in the great northeast. It is ALL AGES. There is LOTS OF PARKING. There is BEER and OTHER ALCOHOL and mad SNACKS. You can eat all the snacks you can handle.
You can eat WINGS or BONELESS WINGS, or FLATBREADS or maybe some friggin’ NACHOS. Or perhaps some PULLED PORK SLAMMERS.
They will have some sweet food and drink specials for us.
Most importantly, they are happy to have us, and they will have a million loud TVs on the lottery so we can cheer when the Sixers steal the Lakers pick and we can boo when they show Doug Collins.
These shirts are amazing but are no longer for sale for party pickup.
You may be asking, WHO DESIGNED THIS FRIGGIN AMAZING SHIRT?! Well that is amazing artist Kevin Lennertz. He is an amazing artist and alumni of University Of The Arts, and he volunteered his services. Look at HINKIE! You can see all of Kevin’s really amazing art at his WEBSITE. Also, please follow Kevin on Twitter @KevinLennertz.
Kevin is the best, please hire him!
We will have more to add, but we’re starting off BIG. Thanks to our friends at Sports Authority (thanks Marty), we’ve got some SWEET Sixers Throwback Starter satin jackets to give away. You’re going to come into the party looking like a SCHLUB and will leave looking friggin’ FLY in your Lottery Party t-shirt and Starter satin jacket from Sports Authority.
Let’s be together for this. It was really fun last year, and it will be fun again.
Trust The Process. Join Our Cult. Fuck Andrew Sharp.
When you think about it, when you really think about it, the only thing of any value in the NBA that is in any way associated with New England is Brett Brown. And he’s all ours.
We were lucky enough to have the 2014-15 NBA Coach Of The Year on the Rights To Ricky Sanchez podcast. He was as charming as you’d imagine.
As an aside, we will have ALL Lottery Party details, as well as t-shirts sales up and running this week. The shirts are bananas, and the party will be bananas. May 19th at Buffalo Wild Wings at 9701 Roosevelt Blvd in the Northeast.
The Nerlens Noel Rookie Of The Year push is in full force. WHY NOT US?! WHY NOT NERLENS?!
An update on the Lottery Party T-Shirts, how Ish Smith has made the Sixers better, an update on MCW, a hot take about Brett Brown, the Clippers are annoying, Sixers Nerd Armageddon, Twitter questions, a draft update, an AMAZING Tony Wroten story, and a Wrestlemania Preview with Ange Goldstein.
Spike and Mike tackle Ish’s revival, his stats vs. Michael Carter-Williams, some Twitter questions, Nerlens Rookie Of The Year momentum, wins over the Kings and Hawks, Mike’s big board, Glenn Robinson III, some quick lottery party updates, and perhaps the most awful Jigsaw of all time.
Only 20 games left in what is widely considered the best Sixers season in over a decade.
They only have to go 12-8 to match Mike’s prediction of 25 wins.
This episode includes T-Rob’s per minute explosion, Nerlens Rookie Of The Year hopes, a little Ish and Isaiah talk, and Embiid’s now internet famous between the legs dunk. Also perhaps a little Andrew Sharp ether and some lottery party details.
