Why The Rockets and Melo is a Good Idea

First thing people jump to when this is brought up is, the Houston Rockets don’t need any more scorers they need defense! Fans of the NBA like to think that scorers can’t co-exist or it would be bad for the team because everyone will want the ball.

From Beverly’s body language, he wasn’t playing around, he looked like he was ready to do something that he was going to regret. Luckly, Omer Asik got a hold of him before it went any further. Those fans were way too close to the Rockets bench, they need some sort of buffer zone. H/T CJ Zero
