Were they haymakers? Yes. Were they merited? Also yes. Yeah, Houston cheated back in the day. But if you keep poking the fan base by bringing that up, how do you think they'll clap back after completing a sweep?

Historic regular season, blah blah blah, and you can't even make it to the first round of the playoffs. You heard me right. The LCS is the ACTUAL first round of the playoffs. Houston 👏 has 👏 standards 👏.
