Pod: Sixers vs. Raptors: Games 1 and 2

Photo courtesy of friend of the pod Chal Houng who went to Game 1 but didn’t invite us so I guess he’s not THAT good a friend?

The guys are back this week with their analysis of what can only be described as a dream start to the NBA Playoffs for your Philadelphia 76ers. The conversation includes a discussion on the physical nature of the series and the Raptors’ response to it, plus John puts Joe on the spot to answer some tough questions. Then, of course, comes the contractually-obligated mention of the start of baseball season.

The rundown:

• In a surprising development, John was actually able to watch both games of the series so far, while Joe waxes nostalgic for an era that never existed and brags about watching three games at once, as if it’s an accomplishment in 2022

• John continues to show no respect for the “What Are You Drinking?” segment, while Joe goes back to the well for a good joke, and some whiskey (5:16)

• The first two games of the Sixers-Raptors series probably went as well as you could have hoped from a Sixers perspective (5:58)

• Even through just two games, the overt physicality of the series is apparent, and the guys discuss its effect on both teams (12:29)

• John hits Joe with some Sixers-Raptors “Fill in the Blank” questions before Joe disappoints John by actually giving some good answers (18:00)

• Baseball season has begun, so the guys share their respective Phillies Thoughts of the Week in an effort to put things into perspective (34:13)

KD is (Maybe) Coming to Philadelphia; Hugh Douglas is an Eagles Hall of Famer The Philly Frenetics Podcast

The guys are back to discuss the NBA investigation into the Sixers (5:28) and the rumors of Kevin Durant's potential interest in coming to Philadelphia (11:10).  Then, it's August, so it's time to talk Phillies (25:39) before segueing into a discussion of the respective team Halls/Walls of Fame (31:09) – including the Eagles' imminent enshrinement of Hugh Douglas – and the NBA's plan to honor the late Bill Russell (38:06).
