The Houston Rockets welcome the Cleveland Cavaliers to Texas on Thursday night for a nationally televised tilt between two teams with title aspirations. For the Cavs, it’s a chance to build some positive momentum and get back to .500. For the Rockets, it’s a chance to add another high-profile victory to their early-season resume, and stay even with the rolling Golden State Warriors in the race for Western Conference supremacy.
The Rockets, as you might expect, are pretty amped up for the game … and they just couldn’t stop themselves from sharing their mood with the rest of us.
We’re sure LeBron James appreciates the Rockets’ timely and relevant hype video, as only a fellow Arthur-liking aficionado with a beautiful mind for social media can. We’ll also be watching intently for the first sign of James fist-pumping in anger/frustration/exaltation/all of the above tonight, because no meme story is complete until the snake (or aardvark, as it were) eats its own tail … and because, well, it wouldn’t be particularly surprising if the King enters Toyota Center in a bit of a mood.
