They've Still Got Jobs
The Opening Tip
Hello and Happy Thursday, it's the Corner Three!
Our Rockets and Playoff ROCO sadly met their demise but shoutout to them on a great season and thanks in advance for sending Morey our way.
Jerami Grant and his Nuggets play in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals tonight. Even when it went wrong, we were right.
THEY ALL STILL HAVE JOBS #EverybodyGottaGo
STAY WARM WITH STATESIDE
Does time exist anymore? Debatable. But it seems like we've made it far enough into the year where it's getting cooler outside. Who wants to make multiple trips for booze in the cold? Get the huge 1.75 litre MAGNUM bottle of Stateside Vodka. All vodka, no gluten. They've got Philly delivery and pickup at their website, and you can also get MAGNUM at Fine Wine & Spirits and all those spots in Jersey and Delaware.
This Week In The Pod
Well. It happened. The darkest timeline got darker. It's a Heat vs Celtics Eastern Conference Finals. The guys pick their respective winners, talk about Run it Back part Deux and debate Big Jah vs Shawn Bradley.
And just last night! The guys dive into Spike's comeuppance, as every team he's ever fucked with (and Millsap) is in the conference finals. Scott O'Neil gets deeper in the crosshairs of our fearless leaders, and a discussion on wiping standing up (seriously, what the fuck is even this podcast)
I thought 2020 would be the year, but 2021 is when I start riding a bike again. I swear! For those of you already in Bike Life, great organizations like Neighborhood Bike Works are around today to help kids in underserved Philadelphia neighborhoods with educational, recreational and career building through bicycling and are always looking for helping hands. Read so much more about them and how you can help here.
Autographed Embiid Ones: Deadline Tomorrow
Friday at midnight is the deadline to enter to win our contest for a pair of autographed Under Armour Embiid Ones. Enter here. They're released worldwide tomorrow as well. Once again, here is where you enter.
Oh Yeah,The Sixers
On the front office "Evaluation":
The NBA draft is 63 days away and a front office that was deemed for upheaval is still very much intact. I don't trust them to do anything right, especially not with 5 draft picks, because they'll sell 4 of them so Josh Harris can afford a new submarine with rocket launchers. I just don't understand how people you expect so little of continue to produce the least amount of results. It's actually pretty impressive when you think about it.
On the coaching search:
And they still need a coach! This week's sexy suit is none other than former Process associate coach, Mike D'Antoni. This roster, this front office, is the complete antithesis of what D'Antoni had in Houston, so naturally he's considered a front runner. My D'Antoni thoughts are fairly simple. Where there's smoke there's fire, and the front office groupthink has wanted him to be the main guy for quite some time. However, he wouldn't be my choice mostly because you'd be asking a coach who loves to run and gun to build his attack around a post up center and a guy who won't shoot. However, However! He mighttttt be the kind of coach to get the most out of a player who excels at putting pressure on defenses in a fastbreak (Hi Ben) So what the hell do I know. Again, this is all very much a moot point because the front office that was supposed to be evaluated almost a month ago is STILL INTACT so I could care less about a coach until those changes are met.
The Rest From The Best
In what is shaping up to be the most important offseason in recent memory (since last year), Mike O'Connor laid out 4 major questions among the many facing a team that has little answers at the moment.
My guy, Andrew Unterberger dropped some straight heat this week and took the backlash like a true steward of the Process. The Sixers as currently constituted simply weren't good enough this year but AU wants us to slow down and think about running it back.
It took a few years and countless months to get the (sometimes shitty) on court product this team has. Sixers Adam took the baton and did his best to fix it for us in 8 simple moves. What a guy.
Peace, Love and Process
Be Good, Read a book, and Take a walk (with your mask on)
