The Week In Sixers & Hinkie Resignation Letter All-Star Audiobook
6 days ago
It's been two weeks, so we have a lot to talk about. Also, it's the offseason, so we're committed to doing something pretty different or absurd in each podcast. First, we discuss Sam Hinkie's Twitter awakening, Allen Iverson's Hall Of Fame speech, Brett Brown's press lunch, the return of Elton Brand, and the various Embiid media of the week. Then, we provide you with something incredible and ridiculous. We've recorded and put together an audiobook of Sam Hinkie's resignation letter. The various pages are read by us, LL Pavorsky, Max Rappaport and Jim Adair, Chris Ryan and Andy Greenwald, Sean Carroll, Andrew Goldstein, Ben Detrick, Mike Weber, Michael Baumann, and Eliza Hardy Jones. This is an all-timer.

The ONLY 6ers podcast
Hipster son turned boss of a Philly fur-clad heel joins forces with a former Bustleton Bengal All-Star, Grinder (RIP) "writer" and Liberty Baller to discuss The Process and future of the 76ers based almost solely on YouTube clips and snarky hot takes wedged between LL Pavorsky plugs and an occasional guest on a 56k modem connection. Fortunately, the basketball is overshadowed by Rebel, the mailman-hating dog, typically bodily-function-related jigsaws, billboards, future former sixers, draft parties and Skype issues. I wish there was an option to give this podcast a million stars. #lickface

My only problem with this show...
is that it isn't on everyday. For reasons I can't explain, even to myself, I am (was?) obsessed with the Process, I can talk about it all day. Spike and Mike are hysterical, likable, and insightful, and they help make the sixers the "most interesting terrible team in sports history." I have one suggestion for a future show: a breakdown of all Hinkie's trades/signings/draft picks. Obviously some trades would warrant only cursory analysis - no one wants to hear another tired debate about who really won the Jason Thompson-Gerald Wallace blockbuster - and the jury is still out on Saric, Embiid, the Lakers pick, etc. But I think it would be really interesting to all of those who trusted the process, and who hope Hinkie is eventually vindicated. Thanks for the show.
