Welcome to the Brickhouse Podcast

The Brickhouse Podcast is where to go when you can’t stand to hear another cliché to describe Stephen Curry’s “electric performance,” or how the Cavs need to take it “one game at a time”.

BUT if a player has Twitter-Beef, we’re on it. We break down why the NBA would NOT suspend Draymond Green for kicking Steven Adams in the nuts, but WOULD suspend him when he backhanded LeBron James.

The NBA is home to 450 really tall, really rich guys and every week someone does something ridiculous. Some players can’t seem to go 10 days without making headlines off the court (See: DeMarcus Cousins, Matt Barnes, Hassan Whiteside, JR Smith).

Brickhouse was created so others can enjoy NBA basketball in it’s ridiculous entirety. No Chinese brand shoe, owner’s self-funded space program, or player’s dating mistakes go unnoticed. We answer the tough questions like, “What is the Phoenix Suns obsession with twins?” And, “What compelled Sam Hinkie to compare himself to a flightless bird?” If it’s NBA and it’s funny you’ll hear it from us.

Come for the blog. Stay for the podcast. Tweet or email us questions and we will talk about on the show or in a column. Give us a great question and you can even win some Brickhouse swag!

Talk to you all again soon… on the next episode of Brickhouse.

Enjoy the show!

The Ranadive Five

Before Vivek Ranadive bought the Sacramento Kings and joined NBA basketball he had his own squad. He took an unlikely group of Silicon Valley daughters to national prominence with an unorthodox style of play. The team became the basis of a story by Malcolm Gladwell that was later featured in his book “Outliers”. Though we don’t know the name of the team we’ve affectionately dubbed them “The Ranadive Five.”
