Will Kobe retire? Will Jim Buss fire himself? These are the story lines we’re following on Brickhouse for the Lakers going into the season.

Ep 164- Cleveland Cavaliers 2018 NBA Preview #2

The Emmy for Drama next year will be the Cleveland Cavaliers over Game of Thrones. LeBron’s team added three former All-Stars and a great new main plot for the year. Kyrie versus LeBron should entertain for seasons. Cavaliers Survivor pits LeBron against his teammates. Five Stars features movies, rock n’ roll and more from Cleveland.

Ep 163- Boston Celtics 2018 NBA Preview #3

Danny Ainge may have twelve new players but he’s getting coal in his stocking this Christmas. In an unprecedented offseason the number one seed in the East traded the number one pick in the draft AND brings back only four players from last year. Find out what MIT has promised Kyrie Irving and hear one of the worst Boston accents of all time. LeBron’s biggest rival in the East just got way more interesting.

Ep 162- Houston Rockets 2018 NBA Preview #4

The Houston Rockets prepare for a banner year. James Harden has his jersey retired in a strip club. The third round of the playoffs is all Chris Paul needs to be happy. We bring back a segment from Brickhouse Season One: “Who’s That Owner?!” and introduce the new Rockets owner and restaurant billionaire Tillman Fertitta. Liner notes prediction from listener Bjorn: Bet Chris Paul for MVP at 35/1 while you can!

Ep 161- Oklahoma City Thunder 2018 NBA Preview #5

Sam Presti is a mad scientist who made a Frankenstein NBA team with iso-scorers. No one’s accused Sam of sitting on his hand this summer. Can we give him the GM of the Year trophy today? We’ve got stripper jokes, Lakers jokes and ball hog jokes for days. Who will start? Who will sacrifice stats? We can’t wait to see this Presti-created monster unleashed against Golden State.

Ep 160- San Antonio Spurs 2018 NBA Preview #6

The Spurs are like high school girls and we’re all Matthew McConaughey: “Every year we get older, they stay the same age.” We’re not even sure if anyone has told Kawhi the NBA is televised and he’s a star. How would Popovich act in an interview with the census bureau? Find out how we rate the Alamo, the Riverwalk and Pee-Wee Herman’s Big Adventure.

Ep 159- FBI Posterizes College Basketball & NBA Media Day

The NBA is back! We pitch TV show ideas based on this season’s best storylines. Quotes from JR Smith, Steven Adams, Melo and LeBron on media day. Oh, and the FBI just blew the lid off the corrupt ties between shoe companies, high school players, college coaches, financial advisors and NBA agents. After six weeks we serve up a triple dose of the Diss of the Week. Nothing is better than basketball.

Ep 158- Milwaukee Bucks 2018 NBA Preview #7

Fear the Deer! The Greek Freak is on the loose. Milwaukee is near the top of the league with their nickname/slogan game, and this year, their basketball team looks pretty good too. That doesn’t stop us from roasting them, of course. Hear where Tony Snell was before the Bucks and Matt’s new nickname for Jabari Parker. Good thing Giannis is good at hoops because he’s even worse at comedy than we are.

Ep 157- Washington Wizards 2018 NBA Preview #8

Donald Trump makes everything else in Washington seem a little better, the NBA team included. John Wall is back on a deal closer to what he thinks he deserves (don’t try and tell him you can’t get more than the max). Marcin Gortat is back for another season with the bench he dissed publicly last year. Find out how the team that dresses for games like they were funerals will fare this year. Just a guess: probably without any trips to the White House.
