Every missed shot that hits the rim is a brick? So Steph Curry shoots 10 bricks a game?

I don't think a brick can be defined. It's more of a feeling. You watch a shot go up and it hits the front iron, hits the backboard, hits the rim again and falls...not really a brick. You put up a shot and it goes THUD and hits the rim and drops straight down? BRICK!

A brick is also a shot that hits the backboard hard and falls abnormally.

A total miss is an air ball.

Not a great description of it. A brick is a shot that clanks off the side of the rim or backboard. Lonzo shoots a lot of them.

Anyone get a brain cramp and put "Mackenzie" for Spud's last name? (Yes, I know that should be "Spuds' last name".)

I missed Swish, Hakeem and Mutombo because of spelling. I spelled Swish swoosh because I thought that is what it was called.

I guessed Ming for Yao and it didn't except. I know changing it would require a redo but still

Chinese family names are first, so accepting Ming would be like accepting Michael for Jordan or Charles for Barkley.
