64. 02/16/22: James Harden is a Sixer and Ben Simmons is Not
Our long local sports nightmare is over: Ben Simmons is no longer a Philadelphia 76er. In his stead is James Harden, and this week, the guys share their thoughts on the trade (6:17), whether it makes the Sixers a contender in the Eastern Conference this season (14:48), and the added pressure on Doc Rivers to make it work (21:53). Then, it's Super Bowl LVI, which sealed John's win the playoff pick 'em and earned Zac Taylor some criticism from Joe (28:51). What does this win mean for Matthew Stafford's legacy (32:48) and the chances of another team doing a Rams-style all-in push for a title (38:21)? Finally, a fairly nondescript set of Super Bowl commercials and a memorable, even if not mind-blowing, halftime show get some Frenetics-style analysis (43:07).
