Kevin Porter Jr. in the eye of the storm – NBA

Date:

SHARE POST

Houston, we have a problem… The young promise, Kevin Porter Jr., starred in a scandal in the Rockets locker room and went to his house after the break. His team fell to the Denver Nuggets and is last in the Western Conference.

The Houston Rockets dressing room was turned into a Roman circus last night during halftime against the Denver Nuggets game. At the center of the controversy, two team starters: Kevin Porter Jr. and Christian Wood.

The match started and the home team’s most important player this season, Christian Wood, was not in the starting lineup, a strange situation. Even stranger was seeing him play only 8 minutes in the first half (0 points, 1 rebounds and -17 for Houston with him on the court) and that he did not jump onto the court for a single second after the break. There was more.

A common suspect, a classic, despite his youth, anger and excess, Kevin Porter Jr. The young man started as a starter and played 16 minutes in the first half (8 points and 3 assists). All normal, but he did not come out again in the second half and, what was even weirder, he was not on the bench.

The team said that he had a physical problem, but what really happened is that, according to US media, the player had a big row in the locker room with assistant John Lucas. Porter Jr. even threw an object at the General Manager. Immediately afterwards, the player left the locker room and, in the middle of the game, he grabbed his vehicle and went home, leaving the team stranded. Unusual.

Kevin Porter Jr. has a long history of extra-sporting situations. With a character that cost him his departure from the Cleveland Cavaliers after facing in the locker room with Koby Altman, the general manager of the club.

When he was playing for the same Cleveland team, Porter Jr. made improper contact with a referee and cost him a one-game penalty. The same player was the one who had an arrest for possession of weapons.

When he was already playing for the Houston Rockets, he ran away to a strip club and received another penalty from the NBA. Far was the youngest player in history to get a double-double with 50 points.

As for Wood, it transpired that he was a substitute because he breached the club’s rules by missing a Covid-19 test before the game.

The fact that he did not play in the second half was justified by the team saying that it was a technical decision, but it seems that what really happened was that Wood refused to play in the second half.
