June 18, 2022

On today's episode of The Gastroenteritis Blues, Steve and Dan are joined by the Slopmaster himself, Porter AKA TrillBroDude, who returns to the podcast once again. First, he discusses this week's slop: James Harden is reportedly set to re-sign with the Sixers on a short-term extension after opting into his option for next season. How do the guys feel about this development? Also, Tobias Harris is evidently unhappy with the role he grew into at the end of last season! That's a bummer. They discuss.

Who would represent a reach at 23? Does he expect the Sixers to trade the pick? All that and more on this week's episode of the Gastro Blues.

(126) Mitchell is Unnerved, ’Hustle’ is Released, The Finals are Tied Up

June 12, 2022

On tonight’s episode of The Gastroenteritis Blues, Steve, Dan and Emily discuss the latest rumors from around the NBA. Utah Jazz star guard Donovan Mitchell is reportedly ‘unnerved’ with the situation in Salt Lake City after Quin Snyder stepped down. Should the Sixers consider a trade that includes Tyrese Maxey for him? Elsewhere, apparently this time Bradley Beal really wants to play for a winner, and the Denver Nuggets are making two of their bench guards available.

Then, they break down the Adam Sandler/Sixers movie Hustle, which just premiered on Netflix, and features cameos from Tobias Harris, Maxey, Matisse Thybulle, Seth Curry, Dr. J, and many other notable NBA figures.

Finally, they discuss the latest happenings in the 2-2 NBA Finals and how Draymond Green is going to deliver us podcasts whether we like it or not.

(125) The Sixers Will be Drafting & Please do not Relitigate the Al Horford Experience

(125) The Sixers Will be Drafting & Please do not Relitigate the Al Horford Experience

June 5, 2022

On tonight's episode, the Gastro Gang is back in full force and Dan, Emily and Steve discuss the Sixers officially having the 23rd overall pick in this year's NBA draft. Do they predict the team to select and keep a draftee or to pick a player and then trade him elsewhere? Will that player have a parent who works for the team?

They also discuss the news of the day: Utah Jazz longtime head coach Quin Snyder stepped down. Will the Sixers now fire Doc Rivers and hire him instead? Probably not. But still fun to dream.

Then, finally they talk about the NBA Finals, and how the Sixers have been tangentially brought up in recent days as one-time Sixer Al Horford had a tremendous Game 1 for the Boston Celtics. Was Horford really all that bad in Philly? Did the Sixers make a mistake moving off of him after one season?

(124) Doc Stays in Philly, Joel Snubbed by First Team, Tobias Harris Year in Review

May 30, 2022

On tonight's episode of The Gastroenteritis Blues, Steve and Emily discuss the sad news of the Lakers hiring Darvin Ham as head coach, rather than Doc Rivers. They forlornly discuss what is all but sure to be another year of Rivers coaching the Sixers, and whether or not things with Doc are as bad as they at times feel. Also, what about the widespread fan opinion that Daryl Morey would like to fire Doc if not for Sixers' owners pinching pennies?

Then, they lash out NBA media voters for once again snubbing Joel Embiid from All-NBA First Team despite ranking second in MVP voting for the second consecutive season.

After the break, Emily and Steve are joined by Drew to take a comprehensive look at Tobias Harris' year in Philadelphia. A mostly down year from the forward has his future in Philly once again in doubt, so the trio takes a look at his stats, contract, and where he and the Sixers are likely to go from here.

(123) Daryl is Going Star Hunting Again & Matisse Thybulle Season in Review

May 22, 2022

On tonight's episode of The Gastroenteritis Blues, Steve and Emily first discuss a handful of assorted notes from the week: a rumor that Daryl Morey is dead-set on acquiring a third star this summer, the status of Doc Rivers' rumored flirtation with the Los Angeles Lakers, Danny Green's ever-so-brief trash talk to Patrick Beverley, and whether or not Tyrese Maxey ought to be untouchable on the trade market.

In the second half of the podcast, the hosts discuss Sixers swingman Matisse Thybulle being named to his second consecutive All-Defense team before diving deep on what they make of his turbulent season in Philadelphia. Is his defense overrated? Do they want him traded this offseason? If his Sixers career is over, what will serve as the inflection point of his stint in red, white, and blue? Notes on his statistics and contract status within.

(122) Hello Darkness My Old Friend, The Sixers are Out, Doc is Still the Coach; In Retrospect, Trying More Could’ve Helped

May 15, 2022

Well, that's that. The Sixers are out after an embarrassing display in Games 5 and 6 versus the Miami Heat, and Emily and Steve are here to dissect what the hell happened. First, Emily and Drew talk about what it was like to be in the arena for the final game (hint: not good!) before they talk about the littany of things that went wrong in the series, in addition to Joel Embiid's injuries.

They go through quotes from after the the dust settled from Embiid, James Harden, Doc Rivers, Daryl Morey, Matisse Thybulle, Tobias Harris and more.

Also discussed: initial thoughts on where the team should go from here, some player grades from the season that was, whether or not we believe Morey when he says Rivers will be returning as head coach, and how exactly it's possible that trying was such an issue in an elimination game.

Thanks so much for listening all year, Sixers fans. It's going to be, yet again, one hell of an off-season.

(120) Sixers Close out Toronto, Embiid Fractures Face, We’re Onto Miami and Feeling (Mostly) Good

May 1, 2022

On tonight's episode of The Gastroenteritis Blues, Emily, Dan and Steve discuss the Sixers' ability to close out the plucky Raptors' team in six games, thankfully, and all it took to get it done. After laying an egg at home in Game 5, the Sixers got it together and blew out the Raps in their building in Toronto for the decisive game on Thursday. How encouraged were our hosts by the improved play of Joel Embiid, James Harden and Tyrese Maxey.

Then, they talk about the fateful elbow from Pascal Siakam to Embiid's eye which concussed Embiid, broke his orbital bone and has put his status in doubt for the beginning of the Sixers' upcoming series versus Miami. Was it a dirty play by the Toronto forward? Do they blame head coach Doc Rivers for having Embiid in the game with the score so out of reach?

And now, with the reports circling that Embiid could return as soon as Game 3 versus Miami, how do our hosts feel about this series? How will the center rotation shake out? How important will Matisse Thybulle be? They take a look at the other series around the league and make official predictions.
