After Giannis Wins MVP, Rockets Made It About Them
Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo officially won the 2019 NBA MVP award last night.
His accomplishment didn't come as a surprise.
Though Houston Rockets star James Harden was in the running, Antetokounmpo's win was not an upset. On the contrary, it was expected.
Despite that, the Rockets, a team that cried foul play during their playoff series against the Golden State Warriors, asking the refs to just give them a "fair chance", made Giannis' accomplishment about them.
This is what fan accounts are supposed to do, not the team's twitter profile.
Giannis earned the MVP, and Houston failing to even acknowledge his name in their self serving congratulatory tweet is a reminder of why the Rockets are an easy team to root against.
