Rationalizing A Dud
Andrew Unterberger has done some fine work for The Ricky in his short time writing If Not, Pick Will Convey As Two Second Rounders, but he may have just written his finest. Part of being a Sixers fan over the last half-decade is rationalizing the things that disappoint us (drafting Okafor, missed seasons due to injury, AK-47 never reporting). AU found a way to admit this offseason was a dud, but spend several hundred words explaining why that's fine. You'll feel better after reading it.
Unfortunately the big news isn't here, it's on Saturday's podcast. Just make sure you're subscribed. All Spike and Mike will let me say is that it's a first-ever situation for the pod. They'll also talk about the Kawhi non-trade, Bjelica the traitor, Daryl Morey not coming to the Sixers (??) and more.
Free Joel Em-mead Poster
Two important things regarding the Official Gluten-Free Booze Made From Honey of The Process and Saturday, July 21st: first, Joel Em-mead, Colony Meadery's Shirley Temple flavored mead is going on sale on that date. There will only be 76 cases available. And second, if you make any order from the Colony Meadery website on 7/21 and use the promo code RICKY, you'll get a free Joel Em-mead poster (pictured here), and $5 off your order.
Process Hall Of Fame Deadline
You only have one week left to nominate a person, place or thing (really only person or moment) for the Process Hall Of Fame. Remember, if you don't vote you're part of the problem (or it means you don't approve of the things to vote for which is a complicated moral issue that we're not comfortable discussing here).
The Kawhi Non-Trade
Kawhi Leonard didn't go to the Sixers, he went to Canada. Spike wrote a thing about why it was a good deal for the Raptors and probably a good deal to not make for the Sixers. He still manages to take a shot at Bryan Colangelo.
WAYS TO WASTE TIME AT WORK
