Rights To Ricky Sanchez Podcast


Robert Covington struggled down the stretch and in the playoff for the Sixers, but we don't really care. It wasn't the time nor the place. 

For process trusters, Rock is a symbol of where we've come, the OG player of this whole. 

So Covington, who was a guest at the fourth Rights To Ricky Sanchez Lottery party at Xfinity Live on Tuesday night, joined Spike Eskin and Michael Levin on the live podcast and thanked the fans. 

ROCO in the building. Aka Rock, aka Big Shot Bobby. Thanks for hanging with us @atf_33! The @rightstorickysanchez Lottery Party was, to say the least, #TooGood! #trusttheprocess #xfinitylive #rtrs

“I thank you guys," Covington told the crowd of approximately 3,000. "Ya’ll passion, everything. I can say everything that I’ve done it started here. I was given an opportunity in Houston, but for me to become the person and player that I was, it all started with all of you guys behind me. All the tough criticism. Everything that we’ve been a part of, it started here. Like, we all went through it. We all lived in that moment. So without me – it starts with ya’ll first and I thank you guys for being that. Philly is a hard nosed city and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.”

Covington even took photos with the fans too. 

Cov, 27, was signed by Sam Hinkie on November 15, 2014. This season, Covington earned himself a four-year, $62 million contract extension with the Sixers. 

Other notes:

  • Process Truster from ESPN, Pablo S. Torre, also joined the live podcast and called Sixers fans the best in the NBA. He also married people. 
  • There was a great Process montage played that you can watch here. 
  • The Sixers got the No. 10 pick, as expected, and ironically one of the ideal draft candidates is Mikal Bridges -- who is a potential Covington upgrade.
