    All the great games in NBA tonight and yet ESPN has the Houston Rockets win on its front page headline!

    Showing great respect to the Houston Rockets who dismantled the defending champions and the best team in the East with a fantastic record..

    ..behind the leadership and a TRIPLE DOUBLE, and thus a great game by Russell Westbrook, also as acknowledged by ESPN.

    "RUSSELL WESTBROOK"S TRIPPLE DOUBLE, ROCKETS' 22 TREYS FUEL WIN"

    Proof below in case anyone dares to say otherwise.

    So the real hate is on Harden instead of Rockets?

    ESPN glorifies triple doubles so much

    Russ shot 7-27...

    Surprised they talked about NBA at all with a Cowboy game being played.

    I've never seen a mediocre team get covered as much as the Cowboys do, it's sickening.

    Nah, I disagree. Even in a Rockets' win they're still talking about Trey Young. Terrible :p

    Russ shot 30+ times yet folks were acting like he wasn't getting a fair chance. They win, he shoots 27 times and all is right with the world. Winning is a helluva deodorant.

    He reduced his shooting volume by 10% from Tuesday and increased his efficiency. It's progress!

    This is one of those rare moments where they pretend to give a **** about the Rockets before going back to bashing routine, just so they can say, "see, we don't hAte the Rockets, hear a 'proof'" They have given me no reason to believe otherwise.

    Also, this season, guess who is being groomed by espn and national media to be a front runner for MPV? Come on, you know! Hint: Luka, I am your father.

    I have a problem more with their TV media than their online media.

    This.

    Cowboys lost. There weren't any good NBA games besides the Rockets game. Nothing else really happened in the sports world, so they might as well default to the Rockets beating Toronto.

    ESPN with that free real estate in @Zboy's head. Ya hate to see it.
