I always knew the Rockets, particularly Chris Paul & James Harden, have had a tendency to complain about the refs (which is laughable considering James Harden has shot more free throws in the last 3 seasons than any other player in the league.) But this is just ridiculous!
The refs aren't perfect. They make bad calls, on both sides. But maybe the Rockets losing Game 7 last year had more to do with missing 27 threes in a row, and not, at any point during that slump, deciding to STOP SHOOTING THE DAMN THREE and TAKE THE BALL INSIDE! Even without Chris Paul, they could have won that game if they decided to put more pressure inside and force the Warriors, specifically Durant and Curry if they were fortunate, into foul trouble. But they didn't. That Game 7 was the epitome of "Live By the Three. Die By the Three."
What do they want to accomplish out of bringing up Game 7 of last year? Strip the Warriors of the championship and reward it to the Rockets? There's nothing they can do about it! Move on! Shut up and play basketball!
