You've Got Sixers Email, Vol. 7: The Mount Bustmore Of Podcast Names

Brian Bahr

The Liberty Ballers crew discuss who should go on the Sixers Mount Bustmore and the potential name of a Liberty Ballers podcast.

Michael Baumann
Someone else is going to have to publish this week--I'm going to be away from the computer all weekend, because my life is now so awful that I go to Milwaukee on vacation.

Derek Bodner
You went to Milwaukee voluntarily ? You were at least talked into it by a family member, right?

Michael Baumann
The Phillies are there this weekend. The thought of going there voluntarily has only even occurred to me when a team I like is in town.

Derek Bodner
Okay. You're forgiven.

Michael Baumann
Besides, I hear tell that there's beer in Milwaukee. I might make like the Pacers when they drafted that high school forward a while back and go on an ill-advised Bender.
Hello...is this thing on?

Brandon Lee
Solely getting to see DOM BROWN justifies it.

Michael Levin
Big fan of Madison, WI. Not so much 'Waukee.

I've watched so many Dom Brown clips the past month that I start cackling every time he bats.

Michael Levin
So everybody is doing a Mount Rushmore for Philly sports teams and since I'm a R3B3L, I'm gonna do the opposite.

Should I call it: Mount Flushmore (because toilets!), Mount Tushmore (kid-friendly!), Mount Rustmore (old and decrepit!), Mount Crustmore (crust is bad? I'm reaching.) or something funnier? All I know is: Willie's going on there.

Derek Bodner
We could go Mount Bustmore and make it draft focused. We have ample selection to select from.

Michael Baumann
Kevin Ollie. He was an NBA Live player with all the attribute sliders all the way down. He made the mustache uncool. And he kept coming back.

Michael Levin
Love Mount Bustmore. Awesome. I'm gonna extend it more than just draft choices though.

I need two more: Willie Green, Bynum's Knees. What do we think?

I'm asking ARWL to get a photoshop up for me.

Michael Baumann
Glenn Robinson. Shawn Bradley. Jamal Mashburn (though I forget if he was ever actually expected to play).

Derek Bodner
Nah, he was a contract.

Sharone Wright was the other draftee to come to mind, but looking back on that draft, there wasn't 'a whole lot great after him. But man, we could have had Penny if we didn't take Bradley. That hurt.

Michael Levin
I'll bite on Bradley.

I guess the final spot has to be someone among the Keith Van Horn/Big Dog/Chris Webber trifecta.

Although if we're calling it Mount Bustmore, maybe Willie Green isn't the right guy for it. Should we go Webber/KVH/Bynum/Bradley?

Derek Bodner
We could go with Eddie Jordan. I just want an excuse to laugh at Eddie Jordan.

Michael Baumann
But I liked Van Horn.

Michael Levin
I'm in. I guess it comes down to KVH vs. Webber. Clearly Baumann votes C-Web.

BYNUM/EDDIE/BRADLEY/________

Michael Baumann
But I like Webber too...

Sean O'Connor
I know he really wasn't meaningful enough, but Derrick Coleman belongs over either C-Webb or KVH.

Dave Rueter
Van Horn was absolutely rancid in that Pistons series and I'm the only one with the courage to talk about it.

Michael Levin
I'm gonna go with Van Horn for hilarity's sake. Only guy in high socks I didn't like.

Also, SBN is spotting every team blog for Blog Talk Radio podcasts. What should ours be called? Some clever variation of Liberty Ballers. Clever people -- go!

Rich Hofmann
Didn't DC have a couple of big games in that Detroit series? Big thing I remember from those playoffs was the IPod commercials, which were kinda new and massively overplayed.

Sean O'Connor
My favorite DC story is that, when Randy Ayers (I think) went to take him out of the game once, he responded "AW HELL NAW". They took Kenny Thomas out instead.

Sean O'Connor
It's not really much of a story, per se, but that's a very DC moment.

Brandon Lee
The LAWAD Pod.

Michael Baumann
Rodney Podgers.

Tanner Steidel
Podricks Large Sixer

Rich Hofmann
Hahahahahaha.

Roy Burton
(World B.) Free Ballers

Sean O'Connor
The Knee Lube Chronicles

Michael Levin
Wait, guys.

Pod McCullough.

Justin F.
How has no one thought of the Hinkie Panky Podcast?

Roy Burton
Pod Macculloch isn't bad at all. Other suggestions:

Game of Sharones
Locking All Windows and Doors
The Big Lang Theory
Turning Garbage Into Gold

Dave Rueter
Game of Sharones and Pod Macculloch have some serious legs, IMO.

Michael Levin
I do want to have Pod or Cast in there somewhere although Y'ALL KNOW any Sharone reference is my game.

So let's say Pod MacCulloch is the top choice for now unless there's someone either more or less relevant we can make a pun out of.

Justin F.
YOU GUYS! IT WAS AT CITIZENS PARK THIS AFTERNOON! I SAW DOM BROWN HIT A HOME RUN! WITH MY EYES! LIVE! IN FRONT OF ME!

To answer Baumann's original question, I can put up the e-mail thread this weekend.

Michael Levin
Only if it's pubic, please.

Michael Levin
Oh hey, other email thread. I'm definitely getting pretty cocky in my trade savvy on the other thread, so I figured I'd pop by here for a quick breather. Anybody feel like trading the whole franchise?

(NOT TO BE INCLUDED: don't mention trade/draft specifics - only speak vaguely about it if you're gonna. luv u)

[ED. NOTE: Once the SBNBA mock draft is finished and publicly revealed, these much talked about emails will be published here as well. All 199 and counting.]

Justin F.
As long as those threads go public after this whole thing is over, I'll do anything you want.

Justin F.
As fascinating as it is to see Domonic Brown learn what amount of aggressiveness is and is not appropriate at the plate, it is equally fascinating to see one man descend into madness the way Levin has in these SBNBA mock draft email threads.

Tanner Steidel
Roy - please tell me you saw the Brian Williams rap of Regulate.

Roy Burton
I didn't until I pulled it up after reading your email. That is absolutely fantastic.

BTW, they also have a "Nuthin' But A G Thang" version, too:
