The Rockets will host the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The NBA should have just started the season in February and had 50 games.

Why? Why should the rest of the league have to wait for the Rockets to get their sh*t together? All other teams are not dealing with this except for Rondo in Atlanta who went to a funeral. The Rockets season is starting off the way it deserves to, lose a bunch of games because you have no players and then become irrelevant. Harden and Tillman have done so much damage to this team that it will be a decade or more before they’re viable again.

Westbrook reportedly was furious with how lackadaisical Houston was towards Covid and we are seeing it in real time.

You’re right, but this is actually a pretty funny mistake.
This movie is like the Rocky Horror Picture Show where everyone knows all the lines.

A bubble is what they should of done really. I know its kind of selfish, but damn some 500 vaccines would got rid of the problem for the players.

Game has been officially postponed as per ESPN. Heck of a start to the new season.
