The Houston Rockets unveiled new dining options at the Toyota Center for Friday’s home game against Dallas, including a jumbo mac and cheese hot dog with fruit loops and bacon toppings.
Needless to say, the response on social media has been quick and unforgiving. “This is the Rockets’ worst decision since trading Chris Paul and a pack of picks for Russell Westbrook,” tweeted ESPN’s Tim MacMahon.
It was tweeted more than 3,000 times within the first two hours of the team’s original post on Friday afternoon.
However, there were also other positive updates on Friday. Bench sniper Armoni Brooks is back on the team after a hiatus in health and safety protocols, and Houston native Gerald Green is attempting an NBA comeback by joining Houston’s G League subsidiary.
On the other hand, the Green News at the Toyota Center was also a bit bittersweet as he is giving up his last role as coach of player development with the Rockets – and league rules forbid him from moving to Houston as a player in the same season that he coached there.
Apart from the culinary concept, head coach Stephen Silas offered insights into many of these topics as well as an update on the sprained right ankle of the rookie center Alperen Sengun and his outlook on the future after his first training on the pitch since the December 31 injury.
