Brewer shares thoughts on House incident
Former Houston Rockets forward Corey Brewer shared his thoughts on the incident, which got House sent home early and brought negative attention to the franchise. Brewer was on SportsTalk 790’s The A-Team and explained how House let the team down.
“I think it’s really disappointing. I don’t know all the details and I don’t know what happened but it’s disappointing for it to happen during a playoff series. When you’re in a playoff series and you’re on a team that has championship aspirations, you have to try to do the right thing.
I don’t like to judge people unless I have all the facts, but you could tell it affected them, because he was a big part of the team. He played great. Danuel House was a big part of their rotation, and Coach D’Antoni really had a short rotation in the first place. So when you take a guy like him who was playing 30+ minutes, that hurts the team a lot.
I hope they get to the bottom of whatever happened.”
As Brewer pointed out, we don’t exactly know what happened, as House hasn’t spoken out about it publicly and the NBA’s investigation was questionable at best. Brewer joins all Houston Rockets fans in being disappointed in House for putting himself in such a situation, and especially as the Rockets faced the top-seeded Los Angeles Lakers, who the Rockets needed a full crew to get past.
