It's finally here. Our 2018 season previews had a more predictable ending than 'The Passion of the Christ.' The Warriors seem about as untouchable as the Roman Empire, except for KD who we discovered is a tad sensitive. How do we approach roasting one of the greatest basketball teams ever assembled? Just like Draymond Green. Close your eyes and swing for the nuts! Please rate and review us on iTunes. Reach out on Twitter: @brickhousepod

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Tom Thibodeau is Jake Elwood and he's getting the band back together. Will this be the year the Wolves end their fourteen year playoff drought? You can direct all comments, questions and concerns directly to Jimmy Butler's cell phone. Butler's trainer tests Jimmy's strength versus serial killers. Plus hear all about the "show chickens" from the land of 10,000 lakes.

The Raptors love co-opting pop culture. From Jurassic Park, to Drake, to Game of Thrones their team is looking for marketing schemes with a built-in audience. Hence the pressure for the Raps to keep their playoff team together. If they lost Lowry and Ibaka they might have chosen to become just another hockey team. We roast Canada even though, right now, we're pretty jealous of them.

Portland fights to stay the hipster capital of the NBA. Fortunately, Brooklyn is too bad for anyone to root for. If the Jail Blazers of the early oughts were a movie, what movie would they be? Portland is famous for beer and the adult soapbox derby and they recommend a combination of the two. Soak in the city's diversity from The Sierra Club to strip clubs.

Our Utah Jazz roast jokes so white they get a sunburn standing in front of the TV. Hear how Salt Lake City carries on without Gordon Hayward. We discuss SLC Punk and how the city embraces their no nightlife culture. Which Australian teammate will win the conch on Utah Jazz Survivor Island? Only one place to find out: Brickhouse.

We're taking our preview pod to South Beach! The comeback kids who went 30-11 the second half of the season are back. Not much has changed on their team except expectations. We've got roast jokes for all your favorite Heat characters: Dion Waiters, Pat Riley, Hassan Whiteside, Kelly Olynyk and even LeBron James. Plus, we breakdown the Miami crime rate, James Johnson's MMA career and white V-neck tees.
