The Sixers Beat crew discusses the biggest and best move of the Sam Hinkie era.

With the Olympics done and dusted, there's very little live basketball to discuss for the next month or so. Knowing that, the Sixers Beat crew got together to discuss the past, offering up their take on the defining move(s) of the Sam Hinkie era.

What should come as no surprise is the positive tone for the podcast. Most of our focus was directed at the big wins of Hinkie's tenure in Philadelphia; the MCW-Lakers pick trade, the Kings swap and the 2014 Draft (unknown as it still is) were discussed at length as reflections of the over-arching philosophy under Hinkie. It wasn't all sunshine and rainbows -- the implications and unforeseen effects of the Jahlil Okafor selection had to be discussed as well, given that they played a significant part in the GM's eventual demise.

Though some will choose to scream into the abyss dwell on the latter portion, I'm interested in what you think the defining move of The Process era is. We touched on a few extra topics toward the end, from the Lakers pick to Lou Bega, so listen to the podcast and shout your thoughts below.
