The good folks at The Ringer designed a beat-em-up style game where the titular hero is Sam Hinkie. Don’t believe me? Here are some of the best moments from my play through of Hinkie’s Revenge.

Here’s digital Hinkie executing a deal with the shopkeeper version of Vlade Divac, as part of his effort to thwart the Colangelo family.

Here’s Hinkie riding around in a tank, with an issue of Men’s Collar Monthly attached to the wall of the Sixers’ offices.

Here’s Jerry Colangelo with a snake tongue coming out of his mouth, threatening to foil Hinkie’s plot.

Here’s Sam Hinkie giving Joel Embiid a piggy-back ride to protect his feet, as the duo forms the weirdest Voltron ever to throw Shirley Temples at / defeat Bryan Colangelo.

Do I really need to keep going over this with you? The animosity for Bryan Colangelo around here has subsided a ton—rightfully so!—but this is a fun look back on the last few years, and an absolute must play.

But don’t take my word for it, go check it out for yourself now. Here’s the link to Hinkie’s Revenge, now go wreck their offices for the fake first-round pick trade.
