Following Thursday night’s 118-91 loss to the Utah Jazz, which was Houston’s sixth in its last eight games, veteran guard Eric Gordon shared some of his frustrations with Kelly Iko of The Athletic. One comment in particular probably won’t sit well with Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni.
“I’m just not having fun man. I’m just not. This sucks,” Gordon said. “Even the times where I have good games. We’re just not using some guys the right way. Are we gonna make the right sacrifices? Do we have the right attitude?”
The Houston Rockets stink. Last night, they were absolutely embarrassed by the Utah Jazz and the game wasn’t close at any point. The Jazz lost Rudy Gobert in the first 3 minutes after he was ejected for arguing with the refs and the Rockets still couldn’t score any points.
There are a lot of problems with this team. They were literally the best team in the league last season and this year they are the 13th seed and are about a week away from 2019 mock drafts projecting that the Rockets are drafting Zion Williamson with the No. 1 pick.
Eric Gordon has his own ideas of what’s wrong and he thinks the players aren’t being used properly. Hm, whose job is it to put the players in the best position to succeed? Yes, 6th man, Eric Gordon is out here pulling a superstar move and shitting on the head coach, Mike D’Antoni.
I don’t know what D’Antoni is supposed to do after GM Daryl Morey, decided to go all in on Chris Paul and Clint Capela and surrounded them with G-League level talent. James Ennis played 28 minutes. Daniel House played 24 minutes. Who the fuck are James Ennis and Daniel House?
There is a problem in D’Antoni’s coaching in that they don’t seem to have any plays are his gameplan of ‘James Harden..go do everything’ might not be enough especially considering that’s exactly what they did last year and teams have figured out the holes in that offense.
Shout out to Eric Gordon for being the guy on the team to start the ‘fire the coach’ rumors because we all know that as I write this, James Harden is pregaming for the club later and Chris Paul can’t move from his ice bath because his legs are so swollen after games that they look like Squidward when he had too many Krabby Patties.
*whispers* fire everyone.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you will laugh out loud if Eric Gordon gets Mike D’Antoni fired. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
