Why do the Rockets not create things for fans to laugh at?

    I have always wondered....why do the Rockets never really create anything as a joke or to get the players to laugh or have fun like the mavs and other teams do? Maybe the rockets do and I have not seen it, but I was just curious because I have never seen a team do it as much as dallas but I also know spurs and others do it to keep the fans smiling and the players laughing. Below is just the newest joke video but I can find like 100 from dallas alone.

    Have you been watching the 2015-2016 Houston Rockets?

    I think they've presented us with a joke of a season.

    1) Dallas IS a joke...

    2) Have you seen the Rockets this season? They're a joke themselves...

    Is this a joke OP?

    The Rockets play basketball. Doesn't that make you laugh?

    The Rockets' marketing team is clearly out of touch, or they are getting directives from individuals that are out of touch.

    How else could anyone explain why we still have such dated uniforms, logos, lettering and such a boring court?

    We can't really expect the same people that roll out the same crap every year to come up with something innovative or entertaining can we?

    I wonder why too. It took Les how many years to get a more modern cut to the home/away jerseys? That's all you need to know. Out of touch or maybe just lazy.

    Clutch the bear is funny, though.

    A library can be a great source of inspiration and motivation from a vast collection of diverse and priceless books.

    This is more like a ghost:eek:bustas:p library of defend defunct.................. shooosshhhh....... i aint afraid of our ghost D.... we wont contest all year wide open jumpers after they keep hittin and by the time we rotate they ate some marshmellows. Yeah double teams have done justice meanwhile opponents keep getten them career/season highs. Rox showcase masterpiece.

    I agree clutch is funny, but that is because the performer who is clutch is very talented and knows how to interact with the crowd and from working in college athletics office (prob not even close to same as pros) what the mascot does, dances, acts, etc. the office has nothing to do with nor does the marketing team. So those who make the funny promotional material or serious material have very little to do with what the mascot does, who it is, skits, etc.

    The Rockets do, and apparently you have not seen it.

    Maybe the difference is the Rockets don't replay them on Facebook, like you have shown Dallas doing?

    Like every game, multiple times.

    o ok see that is why I was confused....dallas is not the only team to post videos on social media btw...spurs do it, heat do it, warriors too....that is why I asked if rockets did or not because I see it from nearly every team just never see it from rockets....Maybe front office is not using social media as well as others idk
