    Too much, @tinman is right, Rocket fans are too soft and sensitive.

    Let them hate and lie.

    Sensitive?

    I live for this shyte!! I love the fight!

    And Tinny is right about very few things, more obsessed with 99ers than the Rockets. When he has to hijack every thread to fuel his Les hate he is even less tolerable.

    I can’t wait for the media to diss the rockets so the insecure fans can cry like their dog died when the Rockets WIN

    only thing that really bothers me, is the obnoxious slobberin on prime time tv from the announcers for the other team. Like god dam i want to enjoy a good game, but its kinda hard hearing bias announcing. putting it on mute and watching a quiet game is boring.

    I said this in the Janice thread and it’s just as appropriate here...

    I love how the world has come to the aid of a 7 foot tall physical phenom to show how “skilled” he is and yet I don’t recall any of these outlets coming to the aid of James Harden showing him playing defense or pointing out that he has led the NBA in assists and has consistently been a top tier playmaker for years. Buffoonery.

    Only furthers to solidify the point he made about certain agendas being pushed.

    I figured out

    not everyone is a rockets fan in the world
    @Clutch
    So I’m ok if the announcers aren’t rooting for the rockets knowing this fact

    For the people who watch baseball
    Wait til the media starts talking about the Astros this year
    And it only matters if you care about it

    There must be a clause in fine print that they must have their anti-Harden, anti-Rockets caps on or you won't get air time.

    Bonuses activated as they have "manufactured" a beef to make Harden look villainous and the other dude an angel.

    The media's "hot takes," hypocrisy, flips and back flips are so salty it could raise the salinity of a freshwater lake.

    I think the media addiction is real

    If ESPN were shut down 95% would feel worse than the corona and Ebola viruses hitting you at the same time

    Dude, a little bit of sensitivity?

    You could have used black plague or F'ing Ricketts and everyone would have understood the point you were making.

    There are real people dying right now from coronavirus.

    And some of them have diarrhea of the mouth...they can't shut up for two seconds...eh Hubie!

    I put it on mute too....they can be so annoying. This Thursday will probably be another muted game unless Jeff Van Gundy is covering the game.

    DA comes across like an a-hole and a moron.

    First, he trivializes what Morey and the Rockets are doing with microball, then, he denigrates the entire Rockets fan base, finally, he acts like he doesn't understand why Rockets fans aren't booing our starting point guard (because I suppose that's the norm when any team acquires a player from a rival?).

    Any amount of respect I may have had for this douche is long gone.

    LeBron had a HUGE travel the other day when he did a behind the back dribble around some defender then dribbled once and then took three huge steps through traffic to lay it in. It was advertised in slow mo Twitter as an amazing play by LeBron. I couldn't believe it. You could literally count the steps in slow motion and it was on a loop but no, we must all hail King LA James!! I don't even know why I pay this crap any attention anymore. The older I get the worse the BS gets with this league.

    I am just so sick of people crying. @tinman shtick is not 1/100th as bad as compared to all the whining about x says y about the Rockets. Who the F cares? They either win a championship or they don't.

    That's why no one should care. Because only one thing matters.

    I agree.

    Do not care about MVPs and popularity votes but narratives are important because they affect headspace of our team, opposing teams and refs. They are human so positive and negative influencers do matter.

    Negative influences especially false narratives need to be corrected or better yet stamped out. Ignoring a problem is never a solution.

    In any industry.
