Houston Rockets Daily Social Buzz: Championship Flashback


While social media has been active especially with the NBA Finals the last few days the Houston Rockets have also been in the spotlight. As for the daily social media buzz from June 14th it was a relatively quiet day.

Rockets Players

The one player note is James Harden became the recipient of an award he likely wishes he didn’t win. Hopefully it will serve to motivate the bearded man in his offseason workouts:

Bottom line barring the Cavaliers forcing Draymond Green into a flagrant in the opening minute of Game 6 to get him ousted from the final 2 games (though nothing is impossible), they are still in control of this series:

So that suspension sure did help LeBron out, now what?

LeBron James was wise to get Draymond Green suspended, but now what? https://t.co/apu4SBxvNA

And if you listened to the Tamberlyn’s Tip Off podcast you’ll know exactly which play Antonio Davis is referring to (hint: it’s from the Raptors vs Cavs ECF when LeBron patted his bicep after powering through DeRozan only to flop immediately after and somehow draw a flagrant on the play vs Biyombo):

Ayesha Curry returned to social media. Now many said the game appeared to be called fairly, but upon closer examination I challenge anyone to find me ONE drive by Kyrie Irving that didn’t include a push off. If you want to see examples of how refs call offensive push-offs just go watch ANY of the Raptors games versus Cleveland!

Can refs get fined?
