Brickhouse Ep 217: Happy NBA Hanukkah!
To celebrate the holiday we discuss our eight biggest stories of the week. Like how Fred Hoiberg may have lost the team, and when. And how New Balance lost all their potential NBA endorsers until finally landing Kawhi. We weigh the possibility of John Wall trade rumors to the Lakers and Knicks and discuss the people pulling the strings behind them. The Rockets may look terrible but that isn’t stopping Chris Paul from talking trash to everyone. Plus, Joakim Noah to Memphis, Nikola Jokic for MVP of my heart, and Steph Curry’s revelation to try to market his shoes to girls. Diss of the Week submissions from a Wizards season ticket holder and Kobe Bryant.

Brickhouse Ep 216: The NBA’s Most Disappointing Team Awards
The season’s already a quarter finished and a few would-be playoff contenders look pretty finished too. The western conference features 14 competitive teams as well as Matt Baker’s Phoenix Suns.

We also weigh in on this season’s worst teammates and the players most deserving of a raise. Diss of the week submissions from and Jimmy Butler, Mike Malone and Bobby Portis… kind of.

Brickhouse Ep 215: Draymond Green Said What?
We always knew the only team that could stop the Warriors was the Warriors. And if any one player would be the one to tear it all down, it was always going to be Draymond Green. As the rumors swirl about what was said on the bench and in the locker room we’re here to fan the flames. The crazy thing about speculating on Draymond Green quotes is that you can picture him saying almost anything. Nothing is too offensive. Golden State is not the only place for drama though. We discuss the exploding tension in Washington DC and examine the latest chapter in the ballad of Markelle Fultz.

Brickhouse Ep 214: Always Sunny Jimmy Butler to Philadelphia
Tom Thibodeau finally found a trade for his disgruntled star, Jimmy Butler. If Butler thought Wiggins and Towns were too fragile just wait until he gets a load of Fultz! We examine how the shockwaves of the trade ripple throughout the league. Everyone from fans of the Chicago Bulls, to Jimmer Fredette, to ‘The Goonies’ movie felt it. Plus, the Rockets may not just be losing out on just Jimmy this week, but Carmelo too. Warriors execs hilariously lure fans with offer of $100 tickets to games with zero view. And it might be time to panic about Dwight Howard and the Washington Wizards.

Brickhouse Ep 213: Good & Bad NBA Marriages
Three weeks into the NBA season we’ve identified the coaches, players and teams that have found the perfect match. There’s still more teams throwing dishes and sleeping on the couch. Mike Budenholzer found a newer, younger European partner, while Jimmy Butler and the Timberwolves look like Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren. The Cavs need counseling for their coaches and their veteran shooting guard. The Wizards only consistency is their dysfunction and Kawhi on the Raptors seems about as real as Kim Kardashian’s TV wedding special. Plus, a Diss of the Week featuring Fergie’s ex-husband versus the Golden State Warriors.

Brickhouse Ep 212: #Spitgate Winners and Losers
Well it didn’t take long for one of the Lakers’ “meme team” to get into trouble, did it? Those punches were some of the only defense we’ve seen played this season! LeBron moved to LA for the entertainment business and his team is already delivering it on the court despite their slow start. We break down the biggest losers from Saturday’s fracas while also highlighting who benefits the most. That we already have an NBA conspiracy one week into the season is why this show exists and why we’re fans. Plus a the Marc Stein/Shams Charnia Battle Royale in our ‘Diss of the Week.’

Brickhouse Ep 207: Jimmy Butler Drama and the Dry Heave Team Previews
When Jimmy Butler forces a late off-season trade that means the NBA is back! This historic occasion may be the first time a player has ever actually tried to be traded to the Clippers. After months of searching, the 76ers found their new GM right under their noses. We discuss how the Elton Brand hiring came to be.
