Rights To Ricky Sanchez Podcast: Hold Me, Sixers Select Jahlil Okafor And 50 Other Centers In NBA Draft

RTRS Draft

Complete impossibility. Sounds about right.

The Lakers selected D’Angelo Russell. The Sixers selected Jahlil Okafor. You may have noticed, he’s another center. Should be an interesting season.

Spike and Mike react to the Okafor selection, and the rest of the NBA Draft adventure, including many, many, many big men.

Forget about setbacks, buyouts and all that nonsense. The NBA Draft is in 48 hours.

Spike and Mike give their final big boards, and do it without a guest for once.

Rest in peace to the great Harvey Pollack. He will be missed by many.

Rights To Ricky Sanchez Podcast: Sixers Draft Countdown and NBA Scout Elan Vinokurov

kristaps-2

The draft is just days away, and we haven’t had any setbacks. Things are just not healing as quickly as we’d like them to.

We recap the week in Sixers, including the new uniforms, Spike’s fight on WIP, and the lack of updates on Joel Embiid. Then the guys have real life NBA Scout Elan Vinokurov, founder of EV Hoops on to explain what the life of a scout is like, his relationship with NBA teams, and his thoughts on any potential Sixers. They also give their last thoughts on the NBA Finals, including Andre Iguodala’s Finals MVP Award.

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.

Rights To Ricky Sanchez Podcast: Live From The Sixers Lottery Party

RTRS Live

Who’d have guessed, two years ago when we started The Rights To Ricky Sanchez podcast would be doing a live version, that barely anyone could hear, in a packed Buffalo Wild Wings, in front of hundreds… (deep breath through nose) AND HUNDREDS of the pod’s supporters? No one would have guessed that. You’d be a moron to have guessed that.

But it happened, and it sounds, well, it sounds like it sounds. It’s a funny listen. You hear people boo Doug Collins and Howard Eskin. You hear people chant “asshole” at Andrew Sharp. And you hear Mike and I sort of try to do a show, and then eventually give up.

We showed up to Ricky, and chew bubblegum, and we were all out of bubblegum.

Next time, we’ll be more prepared. We didn’t expect so many people. We’ll bring bigger speakers. But for now, this is a fun listen if you were there and want to bask in the memory, or didn’t make it because you were stuck outside because we filled up the place, like this guy.

Thanks again for coming. You guys and gals are awesome.

Rights To Ricky Sanchez Podcast: #OneSixEleven Sixers Lottery Party Recap

474019402

Well, that was pretty great.

There are two things you have to know about the second annual Rights To Ricky Sanchez / Liberty Ballers Lottery Party. 1. Andrew Sharp showed up, and took a picture with this guy. 2. They had to stop letting people into Buffalo Wild Wings on a Tuesday night because they were at capacity. Yikes!

Thank you so much for coming out. Mike and I decided that rather than eat like civilized human beings, we’d go do a podcast. Live podcast highlights will be released sometime on Wednesday.

Thank you so much for supporting the podcast. It means a lot to both of us.

TIMING

People get there very early last year. You should do that this year as well. Because the lottery itself is about 10 minutes long, the party itself is mostly before the lottery happens. Of course, when we get #OneSixEleven, we’ll stay all night. We’ll start officially at 6pm, but Mike and Spike will be there earlier than that.

THE LIVE RICKY RECORDING

We’ll be recording a LIVE version of The Rights To Ricky Sanchez (we think). It will start around 6:45. It might be a disaster, but we’re going to try. There will likely be a VERY SPECIAL GUEST.

SPECIALS

It’s TRADITIONAL TUESDAY at Buffalo Wild Wings, meaning wings are just .65 cents each. ARE YOU SERIOUS?! Eat a lot of them. Eat the hell out of them with their 16 signature sauces and five dry rubs. Also, if you can get there before 6pm, you can take advantage of their Happy Hour specials, including $3 select appetizers(Mozzarella sticks, Roasted Garlic Mushrooms, Chili con Queso Dip & tortilla chips, Mini Corn Dogs, a Regular sized order of Beer Battered Onion Rings and Tortila Chips & Salsa). They have $3 liquor specials for Absolut, Jack Daniels and Captain Morgan, as well as $3-$5 23oz Tall Draft Beers with 30 beers on tap!

Also, while you’re there, sign up to host your Fantasy Football Draft Party at BWW. Book your Fantasy Football party with 10 or more people and receive a FF Draft Kit filled with: A draft board, stickers with the players names on them, (20) $5 coupons for future purchases, the Brag Flag, and (10) bottle openers with the BWW logo. The kits are limited, so book your party ASAP!

GIVEAWAYS

Thanks to our friend Marty at Sports Authority, we have a couple of sweet Sixers Starter satin jackets to give away. Buy all your Sixers gear at Sports Authority. 

HASHTAG

The official hashtag of the event for all of your tweeting and instagramming and Pinterest needs is #OneSixEleven. 

BEHAVIOR

Behave yourself. Have a great time.

This is going to be a really fun time, and Mike, myself and everyone at Liberty Ballers is so amazed and thrilled that this event can happen at all, and can be as big as it seems like it will be. Remember, when the ping pong balls fall our way, you’re going to need someone to hug.
