First, shout out to two new podcasts I'm listening to:
- "Best Episode Ever Podcast - Brett Rader and Carmen Angelica discuss, what they think, the best episode of various long running TV shows is.
- the Daily Zeitgeist - Jack O'Brien and Miles Gray in the most aptly named podcast talk everything going on right now! Check it out.
Today's topic came about from the classic post-credit part of "based on a true story." We mention how despite how movies often make these positive, sometimes they're actually negative. And with that in mind, we discuss the post-credits of "The Process" story. As I noted in one of my most liked Tweets to date:
The 76ers are finally doing well and it's a ton do with the performance of Covington, Simmons, and Embiid. They should give whoever grabbed those guys a raise!— Andrés Alvarez (@NerdNumbers) November 14, 2017
We talk about how despite the process eventually "winning" by getting two high-caliber NBA players via the draft, how the post-credit scenes have very few winners.
One of the winners is Robert Covington, who is set to get a major raise. Brian and I debate if the 76ers current MVP (as of this writing) is worth the money.
We shout out Stan Van Gundy's support of Collin Kaepernick.
