On this episode of the Sixer Sense Podcast, we welcome back the hilarious co-creator of Game of Zones, Adam Malamut. Although we discuss various topics related to the Sixers, the podcast travels around the league with topics that Adam would consider worthy of a Game of Zones reboot.

The initial topic we introduce is none other than the Ben Simmons quagmire in Brooklyn. We also touch on the Kevin Durant trade request, the Lakers’ acquisition of Patrick Beverley, and how the NBA is full of villainous characters who would populate new Game of Zones episodes.

The podcast pivots to the Sixers and some interesting lineups that Doc Rivers could incorporate into his game plan. Which Sixers player would fit in a small-ball lineup? How do we feel about a Maxey-Embiid tandem again this year? Does Matisse Thybulle fit in anywhere, considering the rough ending from last season?

The discussion then turns to Sixers rivals. Which teams in the NBA Eastern Conference pose as the ultimate adversaries on the court against the 76ers? How do we rank Toronto, Miami, Boston, Brooklyn, and Milwaukee?

Finally, the podcast dives into a segment that we started last episode. We call it “Would You Rather” (part II). In the conversation, we have to choose between two options despite the choice itself being difficult. We ask things like: Would you rather Joel Embiid win the scoring title or James Harden win the assist title? Would you rather Tyrese Maxey earn an All-Star spot or Paul Reed win NBA Most Improved Player?
