Things are not going well in Houston this year. Despite the NBA’s best shooting guard, a top 10 center and some next-level geniuses in the front office, the Rockets are sitting at 30-31, barely hanging on to the West’s final playoff spot.
Now the team's getting desperate. In what appears to be a part of a Dr. Seuss birthday celebration, two women straight out of a Brazzers Cat in the Hat parody tried to distract free throw shooting Pelicans in Tuesday's game.
It didn't work, but they kept trying. Later in the game the same women appeared under the Pelicans basket in trench coats and flashed Ryan Anderson as he sank two free throws.
Again, if the goal was to induce missed free throws, it didn't work. But if the goal was to distract people from the Rockets going the way of the Challenger? Success!
