Original Source: The Athletic
Synopsis: In the latest edition of The Raptors Reasonablists Podcast, Eric Koreen and I bring on Yaron Weitzman to discuss his 76ers book, Tanking To The Top, the Raptors-76ers playoff what-if, Bryan Colangelo eras, and more.
With little news happening around the Raptors, Blake and Eric chat with Bleacher Report’s Yaron Weitzman about his new book ‘Tanking to the Top: The Philadelphia 76ers and the Most Audacious Process in the History of Professional Sports’, as part of an upcoming series on the Raptors biggest rivals in the Eastern Conference. Yaron discusses the recent controversy surrounding the Sixers ownership, then details some of the research that went into writing the book, including the Sixers lack of cooperation, how Sam Hinkie alienated himself from the rest of the NBA, how the Raptors Game 7 win over Philadelphia shaped the team’s current trajectory, and the rise and fall of Bryan Colangelo as Sixers president of basketball operations.
