    All of a sudden the Rockets are cocky. I've been watched a lot of these sports shows preparing for Monday and they keep saying Warriors are angry because of the sh-t talking the Rockets were doing all season. Warriors want to play the Rockets bad to "Shut them up". If anything, the Rockets have been very honest in their pursuit of the #1 seed while the rest of the league laughed.

    • Harden said in an interview he thought this was the Rockets time.
    • Clint said, if healthy, he thinks the Rocket are better than GSW
    • MDA says other teams need to matchup with the Rockets not the other way around
    • Morey says he is obsessed with beating the Warriors while saying the Warrios are the best team

    Correct me if I'm wrong, that's the extent of the "sh-t talking" I haven't heard one sound bite this post season diminishing the opponent or looking toward the future to play the Warriors because "The Rockets want the Warriors".

    The Media is helping the Warriors create fake bulletin board material by painting the Rockets as cocky sh-t talkers.

    Did you see @durvasa 's post about human psychology and needing a villain to root against? If not, I highly recommend reading the attached article in the thread. It keys you in on what the media is doing. They know that if there's a very REAL rooting interest for the country, more people will tune in on a nightly basis.

    media conspiracy

    That's exactly what the Barber is talking about in the beginning of Zach Lee's trailer. Worrriers are trying to play the underdog role. He's calling them on it.

    Exactly I haven't even heard from the rockets talk about this match up after they beat Utah. So I'm like huh, but it reinforces my belief we are in golden states hard n they may be doubting themselves. N to hear them say the warriors are more hungry is laughable. How can u be more hungry when u already have what we want, plus u have guys 10 years in that haven't won n want it so bad for legacy. But I'm like yea I see right thru yall.

    Yes I've been noticing this narrative gathering steam on biased sports media outlets. They are trying to turn us into lazy, choke artist, isolation playing team with a HC that never succeeds. Jalen rose did a video from 3 yrs ago! trying to show harden as a quitter in the previous WCF. Outside of harden, capela none of those guys are currently on the team... If i know this current team, i know they sitting back taking all this in. Kerrs arroance, greens mouth etc. I feel like we gonna come out on fire. Rockets in 6

    Lol warriors **** talk way more.

    Draymond straight up said “that team over there doesnt care about defense” when the year started.

    Kerr has criticized hardens game on twitter.

    West thought “we good, they wont catch us” when they were only up by like 3 games in the standings earlier this year

    Going forward, Capela must say that Golden State is better in every aspect of the game, or it would be taken as trash talking.

    Now the Rockets will be even extra motivated because of the narrative that the Warriors are really gunning for the Rockets because the Rockets were gunning for the Warriors.

    And once the Warriors hear about that, then they'll be even more motivated, gunning for the Rockets because the Rockets are gunning for the Warriors because the Warriors are gunning for the Rockets because the Rockets are gunning for the Warriors... now, of course, you know what that means!

    The Rockets will now REALLY be gunning for the Warriors, because the Warriors are gunning for the Rockets, because the Rockets are gunning for the Warriors, because the Warriors are gunning for the Rockets because the Rockets are gunning for the Warriors...

    Now, you know what that'll lead to...

    the rockets should be talking to the media and at a very loud volume. about moving screens and draymond cheap shots + yelling at the refs. make that the narrative of fresh meat for these media whores to jump at like a cackle of hyenas

    The NBA is trying to hype this series up. Media is paid to do just that.

    NBA will make ton of money off this series alone.

    I have noticed this too...all this talk about the Rockets 'talking'...The only mouth that keeps running is Draymond, with Kerr being a close second.
