Huq’s Pen: Houston Rockets 2018-2019 postmortem

  • I’ve already tweeted a lot of my initial reactions in the hours since the loss, but I kind of see this place as a refuge for more nuanced takes. That’s the thing I hate about Internet culture today, particularly with respect to politics but also seeping its way down to sports. No one wants to hear about some white paper and the impact on GDP and other economic indicators of some policy position; all that matters is “TRADE DEFICIT!!11” or “MOAR FACTORY JOBS CREATED!” or whatever else can be bundled up conveniently into a catchphrase or sound bite.
