It’s a jam-packed episode this week with Liberty Ballers’ own Dave Early back on the show.

Dave and Sean wonder why the Sixers couldn’t beat a Wizards team that was missing Bradley Beal.

Then, they celebrate a couple of recent accolades recipients on the Sixers roster. Joel Embiid secured back-to-back Player of the Month awards for the first time in Philadelphia franchise history.

Tyrese Maxey will be joining him in Cleveland for All-Star weekend as part of the Rising Stars games. Sean and Dave discuss how many Rising Stars they would take over Maxey (hint: it’s not many).

In weekly Ben Simmons news, they bring up Shaq’s most recent comments before diving into the latest trade rumors, with the deadline approaching next week.

What are the odds Daryl Morey’s less likely than likely words come to fruition? Is it Harden, Beal, or bust?

Finally, the Sixers are a game out of 1st place in the East as of this recording but have the 6th-toughest remaining schedule. What are their expectations for this team over the second half of the season?
