Where are the real fans at? Not the posers who just show up for the playoffs. The ones following their teams day in and day out — even in the off season. Fans who take serious offense to people talking any trash about their players, their team or their hometown. You know, fans like this kid.
Check it out. The below clip is from an ABC affiliate down in Houston and captures a young Rockets fan taking advantage of his camera time to respond to TNT analyst Shaquille O’Neal. Shaq recently criticized Dwight Howard for not being able to take the heat in L.A. and signing with a “little town like Houston.”
This is by far the best response we’ve heard yet from Rockets faithful. H-Town Pride.
