Can’t go wrong here

Less of the Schtick of the Ricky and more of the hardcore analysis from two strong and sharp 76ers journalists. This is a regular in my rotation and at certain time periods like after trades, fires/hires, and during the playoffs, one of my top listens. Long time reader too and they are both top notch writers. Well done to both of you!

Great Perspective

These guys know their hoops and they know the Sixers. I never miss an episode!

“Gentlemen’s Agreement”

Rather than handshake agreement, a gentlemen’s agreement is when nothing needs to be said, because everyone already knows they agree, they have a tacit understanding and therefore no hard evidence. There was a movie of the same name.
