On today’s episode of The Gastroenteritis Blues, Steve, Dan and Emily discuss the news of the week - Ben Simmons’ official trade request out of Philadelphia. The hosts discuss the significance of the request, what happens from here, the Klutch angle, and what to make of that odd Tyrese Maxey report. They also discuss Joel Embiid’s tweets on the issue and the way that Simmons’ representation has began to spin his Philadelphia tenure on his way out the door. They also make a significant pod-related announcement.
In the second half of the pod, Dan and Emily are joined by Bleeding Green Nation’s Brandon Lee Gowton to preview the season for the Eagles.
