What do we want? The Sixers draft! We’ve been waiting months to see what pick the Sixers would acquire in the 2017 NBA Draft. With the draft lottery now in the books and the Sixers picking at No. 3 overall, we asked Jake Pavorsky (@JakePavorsky) from LibertyBallers.com to join us on this week’s show for an in-depth discussion about where this Sixers team goes from here.
But first, on the Brief News & Views segment:
1. The one sports team we’re looking forward to watching in the future outside of Philly. (7:05)
2. Under the radar NFL news and notes: new helmets, new announcer. (12:50)
3. The Eagles sign RB LeGarrette Blount to a 1-year deal. (19:35)
4. Flyers prospect Sam Morin had double wrist surgery. (25:25)
5. TAKE IT or LEAVE IT: Vince Velasquez will be the Phillies closer of the future. (29:00)
6. TAKE IT or LEAVE IT: If the Phillies lose over 100 games this year, Pete Mackanin will be fired. (32:30)
Our Listener Feedback this week got into Phillies fans who have issues with Odubel Herrra and also Sam Hinkie’s mark on the Sixers in this year’s draft with some comments about our beloved Philly sports fan base. (35:10)
Then what we’re throwing down on the Table is an interview with Jake Pavorsky from SB Nation’s Liberty Ballers website. With the continuous rebuild, will Kyle Lowry be a good fit for the Sixers should they acquire him? Might the Sixers actually decide to move down in the draft this year? Jake also discussed talent he believes may be good fit for the Sixers with the No. 3 overall pick. Another topic we closed out the interview with was whether or not Jahlil Okafor could be traded for some kind of value in the future. All of these topics and much more this week! (45:50)
