On this week’s episode of the Blazer’s Edge podcast, Tara Bowen-Biggs and Danny Marang are joined by two guests; John Sabine of NBC Sports Chicago and Bulls Outsiders, and Cassidy Gemmet of the WHAT podcast. Together, they tackle John’s poorly seeded NBA nickname bracket to crown the best nickname in NBA history. What nicknames did John forget? Which ones did we get right and which did we get wrong?


Like last week, we’ve got the video feed in case you might want to see some human interaction.
