Alarming trend taking form within the Rockets

After James Harden finished second in the MVP race, the Rockets took to Twitter to respectfully disagree with the decision to name Giannis Antetokounmpo as this year's winner.

The Rockets are showing a pattern of behavior when it comes to disagreeing with decisions and rulings from the NBA and the media. Let's not forget the report they put together about the officiating in Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals in 2018.

ESPN 97.5's Joel Blank shares his thoughts on the Rockets pattern of poor sportsmanship and shares how they should handle these situations going forward.

ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio talks with Chris Simms about the latest information regarding Deshaun Watson and the cases against him. Lawyer Tony Buzbee told Fox 26's Mark Berman that a settlement is not close to happening, and the women that spoke with the NFL did not feel respected.

So what do we make of this? Florio's opinion is that Buzbee is making these comments to put pressure on Deshaun Watson and the NFL, because stirring up this "hornet's nest" will blow back on Watson and the NFL, not Buzbee and his clients. Buzbee must believe that stirring the pot could help nudge the cases toward resolution in a more timely manner.

Finally, Florio spells out how the game is played with lawyers. Meaning, Rusty Hardin and his team are going to make this process as uncomfortable as possible for all the accusers. According to Florio, that's right out of the legal playbook if such a thing existed.

Check out the video to hear Florio's full take on the latest information.
