Zo's Mid-Season Sixers Awards
The Opening Tip
Hello and Happy Friday. It's the Corner Three!
You know "got a guy" for a Mortgage!
Welcome to new Ricky partner MortgageCS! Quite simply, if you need a mortgage (or refinance, or debt consolidation), you need someone who is going to be honest, reliable, always available, and and a friend of The Ricky. Enter, MortgageCS.
Spike had a good talk with Ben (watch it here), the CEO, about why they're independent, and why that's better for you. You can either call or text him ANYTIME at 267-391-7425, or go to mortgagecs.com/ricky to set up an appointment. You've also GOT to go to the website to see all of the awesome Ricky art they created (featuring Rebel, Ship of Theseus, etc...).
New Kinetic Stuff!
New Kinetic t-shirts and hoodies with the SICK reaper logo, it comes out Saturday. Check it out here.
Oh Yeah, The Sixers
Not too shabby for our guys, doing all of this without their second star (James Harden!) The team is in great position heading into the break and as James Harden said when he was introduced at his press conference as a 76er, after the break it's time to go.
1. Midseason MVP
Jo-Jo Embiid, our guy. Not much else to say. I'm so excited for him and what the rest of the season looks like, especially with JH.
2. Pleasant Surprise
HARDEN. Seems cheap but I really didn't think it would happen. In my heart of hearts I didn't buy it happening at all. I'm sorry, I'm tearing up again.
3. "You gotta give me more"
Tobias. Harris. I'm not even trying to pile on but man, 20 ppg a night Tobias catapults this time right into a championship parade. Please Tobias, we are all, once again, begging.
4. Never Allowed to be talked about or included in a trade
Tyrese Maxey, Paul Reed, Charles Bassey
The Mandate has been set. AU says now they actually HAVE to win.
What a damn win, on the road, in Milwaukee, last game before the all-star break and (hopefully) last game without Harden. Sixers Adam has more on last night's big dub.
