There seems to be some animosity brewing between the Golden State Warriors and the Houston Rockets.
According to Slam Online, the Houston Chronicle reported that Warriors head coach Mark Jackson and Rockets forward Chandler Parsons have a little feud going. It started when Jackson complimented Parsons on his versatility earlier in the season but also added that “He should probably stay off Twitter.”
Parsons, obviously took offense to that comment because, following the Rockets demolition of the Warriors in a 140-109 victory in early February – where Houston tied an NBA record by knocking down 23 3-pointers – he tweeted one of Jackson’s popular phrases “Hand down, man down.”
After the Warriors gained some measure of revenge by blowing out the Rockets 108-78 on Sunday, they were at it again.
“@jacksonmark13: @chandlerparsons Congrats on a great year. GREAT seeing U 2night!!!!!#Warriors”just be glad u don’t have to c us again.

The whole situation is actually quite funny, and the fact that both teams are battling for a favorable position in the Western Conference standings with Golden State leading Houston by two games in the 6th and 7th spot respectively, makes it even more interesting. It’s just a shame they won’t be facing each other again in the regular season.

WHAT A MESS
Houston Rockets rookie Royce White believes that not only his team but the NBA want him out of the league because he's "not afraid to say what I think."
Royce White thinks the Houston Rockets and the NBA in general want him to just go away.
The Houston Rockets rookie said this in an interview with the Huffington Post, the latest in a seemingly unending series of interviews with various media outlets in which White, a first-round pick in the 2012 NBA draft, casts himself as a trailblazing, truth-telling everyman going to war with...
It’s hard being both a sports fan while not being a Jeremy Lin fan. As sports lovers, whether it be basketball, football, tennis, whatever, we cheer on the underdog. The guy no one saw coming, one who was given an opportunity many questioned, and killed it. Last year Lin personified the underdog story, and how monumental it can be. That’s old news though, so I won’t go over...
If you thought the Royce White saga couldn’t get any worse, well, you thought wrong. White, the anxiety-riddled first round pick of the Houston Rockets — who recently joined (finally) the Rockets’ D-League affiliate Rio Grande Valley Vipers — hopped on a video chat with Huffington Post Sports and dropped perhaps the most explosive comment of his season-long war of words with...
Royce White is one of those people who get in their own way. White’s issues with the Houston Rockets organization this season have been well documented. White finally returned to the court in February to the Rockets D League affiliate team. White has once again come out faulting the Houston Rockets organization. White believes that in addition to the Rockets, the NBA, David Stern...
HOUSTON The best news these days in Houston is no news. The Rockets are jamming along in seventh place in the Western Conference, and the last thing they need is drama. Drama means trouble.
There was no drama Wednesday at Toyota Center. There almost was. The Rockets never trailed and led by 26 points at the crest of the evening, but it wouldn't have been a Rockets game if some...
I want Royce White to address why he doesn’t use condoms and has 2 kids and 2 more kids on the way. Let’s talk about that instead of his whining about how everyone is out to get him.
The Rockets have bent over backwards to accommodate White and he is still acting like a spoiled brat.
“I went through the bumps and bruises of having to advocate for myself against a billion-dollar...
Can the Houston Rockets Avoid Another Late Season Collapse?:
Fans of the Houston Rockets have had plenty to cheer about this season, but will they finally be able to cheer some post season play?
For the last three seasons fans of the Houston Rockets have not had anyone to cheer for come playoff time. Each season the team finished in ninth; the worst spot you can possibly...
Tracy McGrady was a core player in the Houston Rockets 22 game win streak back in the 2007-2008 season, and has no qualms in saying that the Rockets’ win streak was more impressive than the Heat’s 23 straight wins.
As reported by ESPN McGrady’s frankness wasn’t without a full-on explanation of just why the Rockets, according to McGrady, were superior with their win streak...
James Harden had 29 points and the Houston Rockets improved their positioning in the Western Conference playoff race with a 100-93 win over the Utah Jazz on Wednesday night.
Jeremy Lin added 24 for the Rockets, who currently hold the No. 7 spot in the West. They lead the idle Los Angeles Lakers by 1 1/2 games and are three ahead of the sliding Jazz.
The Rockets led by 19 points...
The Utah Jazz and Houston Rockets sound like desperate teams with 15 games remaining and their postseason fates uncertain.
That's just fine with coaches Tyrone Corbin and Kevin McHale, who hope to see more inspired play when their clubs meet in a crucial matchup Wednesday night in Houston.
Utah (34-33) sits in ninth place in the Western Conference, one game behind the Los Angeles...
