The Sixer Sense Podcast has a very special surprise for the listeners with their 300th(!!) podcast episode! Jonathan Geib and Lucas Johnson are joined by former podcast hosts Christopher Kline and Uriah Young for a hearty conversation about all things Sixers. 300 episodes is truly a milestone and we cannot thank our podcast listeners enough for all the support. Here’s to 300 more.
First up, the group dives into the most recent Sixers preseason game, a 127-119 win over the Brooklyn Nets. Joel Embiid, James Harden, Danuel House, and Furkan Korkmaz did not play and we will dive more into Harden in a minute. The guys give their selections for players of the game and identify the good and bad that they saw on the court for the Sixers.
As promised, the big news of the week (and all summer) is James Harden. Most notably, Harden was absent from practice on Wednesday and reports have him in Houston in what appears to be another step in making Daryl Morey and the team uncomfortable. This all stems from the Los Angeles Clippers and the Sixers still being far apart in terms of trade compensation for Harden. Do the guys think Harden will be traded by the start of the regular season next week? And are the Clippers the only option or are there dark horse teams that could enter the Harden sweepstakes?
Next on the agenda, Lucas asks Uriah and Chris their reactions to the ESPN NBA Top 100 article from last week. Tyrese Maxey is ranked at 42, which just so happens to be one spot higher than Harden at 43. Do Uriah and Chris agree with the rankings here? Is Harden being disrespected? Also, Joel Embiid was ranked as the 3rd best player in the NBA for the upcoming season. Is this the correct spot for the reigning MVP?
The podcast closes out with Jonathan, Lucas, Chris, and Uriah reminiscing on the past 300 episodes of The Sixer Sense Podcast. A lot has changed over the years, and the guys give their favorite takes over the years, episodes, and guests that have joined the podcast. The group had a lot of fun recording this episode and this is a podcast you will not want to miss.
