Ethan Rothstein, our editor in chief and chief who is also an editor, asked me to start a weekly column, in which I bring you the Weird Rockets Video of the Week. At first I was like, "Are there really that many videos that I could use," and the answer to that question was yes, yes, an overwhelmingly intense and absolute yes. I don't think we knew what we were getting ourselves into.
Here is this week's video.
Houston Rockets Broadcasters Discover that Kyle Korver Looks Like Ashton Kutcher
So, the Rockets broadcast team catches a lot of flack. Probably rightfully so. They are some of the most blatant homers available on NBA League Pass. It often seems to them like the Rockets have never committed a foul or flopped or deserved to lose a game. They certainly have done all three of those things, but in most moments, most in-game happenings, Bill Worrell, Matt Bullard, and Clyde Drexler (home games only) would heavily disagree and it would be hilarious and beautiful and perfect.
For some context, Kyle Korver is a super good shooter who has been in the league for a while now and although he didn't play well on Tuesday, I am absolutely choosing this video because the Rockets blew a 19-point lead to his current team, the Atlanta Hawks. So I guess, take that, Peachtree Hoops.
Call me crazy, but I think they must've talked to Jeff Van Gundy too much while he was coaching in Houston. The ROOT Sports broadcast teams goes on very JVG-esque rants often, and I would argue that not many of them are more entertaining than that video above. I mean, seriously. Some of the quotes in here are just overly glorious.
"I gotta like Ashton's side of that deal..." - Bill Worrell, speaking about the wives of Kyle Korver and Ashton Kutcher
"Ashton Kutcher looks like a baaaaabe" - Bill Worrell, HE HAS ACTUALLY SAID THIS WHERE IS A PLAQUE COMMEMORATING THIS?
Plus, Clyde's out here, asking about Demi Moore when he knew damn well who Demi Moore was married to. You can't fool me, Clyde. I see right through you, Clyde. Stay woke, Clyde.
Here is the best comment from this video. I had 14 to choose from.
Well that just seems...
That's fair, I guess.
That was your Weird Rockets Video of the Week. Come back next week when I'll show you some other ridiculous thing because this is who I am now.
