Sam Hinkie, Philanthropist: Sixers GM on the Rights to Ricky Sanchez Podcast

friend - USA TODAY Sports

After months of flirting, Spike and I finally sealed the deal with Sam Hinkie.

So this is cool. Sam Hinkie, he of my everlasting love, reached out to Spike Eskin and I through Sixers PR bro Mike Preston about coming onto our podcast. Spike shoved a sock in my mouth and didn't let me say anything for fear of Hinkie cancelling and us looking like fools. But as he waited for his flight to take off for Spain, Sam spoke to us idiots for a half hour about the Sixers.

LISTEN HERE. RIGHT HERE. DOWNLOAD AND SUBSCRIBE AND LISTEN. RIGHT HERE.

I love that Spike left in the dropped call. Really gives you a sense of the panic we felt when it happened. The ringing on the other end as well. Man, that's good radio.

I had to challenge him with a Ricky Sanchez joke. HAD TO. Great to give Primoz Brezec and Francisco Elson (FROZONE!) some love as well.

God, Sam Hinkie is so effing cool.

This was like Step 8 in the plan for me to take over the Sixers with Sam. We're almost there, guys.
