Pod: Sixers Beat the Raptors, Lose Embiid; Eagles Ace the Draft

Howie’s on the hunt!

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times; it’s Sixers playoff season.

The Sixers eliminated the Raptors last week but lost Joel Embiid to a cheap shot from Pascal Siakam, and then lost Game 1 on the Eastern Conference Semifinals to the Miami Heat. The guys share their thoughts before discussing the Eagles’ draft performance and the Phillies’ existence.

The rundown:

• It was a late-night recording session, so the pleasantries are dispensed with and beverages are introduced before pleasantries inevitably return

• The Sixers blew out the Raptors in Game 6 but lost Joel Embiid in, ahem, the process (1:52)

• The Sixers then lost Game 1 to the Heat in frustrating fashion (12:56); the discussion features what is arguably Philadelphia’s first anti-BBall Paul screed delivered by the Frenetics’ resident screeder and a rumination on the lack of depth that resulted from the Ben Simmons-James Harden trade (19:05)

• The Eagles get kudos for their NFL Draft haul, which included a $100 million receiver (30:46)

• The Phillies Thoughts of the Week, featuring Alec Bohm and, in a recurring feature-within-a-feature, the Mets (39:32)

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).
