When thinking about the Houston Rockets and Donatas Motiejunas drama, some thoughts that come to mind for fans: rage, annoyance and confusion, plus plenty more.

While fans may think since Donuts has refused to rejoin the team, it's his way of turning his back on them. But head coach Mike D'Antoni says if and when this is all over, it will just be water under the bridge.

Patrick Beverley shared it doesn't matter what happens his friendship with the seven-footer will stay the same.

"It's a very fickle situation of course,” Pat told TDS. “At the end of the day, regardless of what happens, me and D-Mo are going to be friends. We came in together, we played overseas together, so that won't change anything. He understands it's not against any player, it's not personal, it's business. As players we can be friends with whoever we friends with, but whatever happens up top, that's out of our control. Whatever D-Mo's decision is, it won't change the love I have for him, the love he has for me. We communicate, we talk, we play video games together. It's always love with D-Mo, but at the same time, we can't control what goes on upstairs."

Fans may be upset/annoyed about everything that has taken place between Motiejunas and management.

What won't happen is players getting upset Motiejunas, it's a business. Players will always side with players.
