Brickhouse Ep 190: Playoffs, Rumors and Draft Smokescreens

Brickhouse Ep 187: Round One Playoff Roast

They say the playoffs are the time when teams exploit their opponent’s weaknesses. For us it’s a time to make jokes about those same shortcomings. Blog Boys represent! We rank ever team in the playoffs from 16-1 starting with the already eliminated Blazers. I guess Portland decided they no longer like winning ever since it got so popular.

How will the Uncle Drew movie perform at the box office? And will the Miami Heat ever play in another jersey again since the release of their “Miami...


Brickhouse Ep 179: The Most Distracting Cavalier Rankings
