During the April 25 Houston Rockets game against the Oklahoma Thunder, the Rockets’ owner Les Alexander showed his passion for his team when he got up to confront the referee.
During the game the referees were missing obvious calls against Oklahoma like the one that the Rockets’ GM Daryl Morey posted to his Twitter of James Harden getting choked out during a play.
It happened during the remaining 13 seconds of the first quarter when Rockets’ owner Les Alexander decided to get up and give the refs a quick ear full.
The next day on April 26, the NBA released a notification saying:
“Houston Rockets owner Leslie Alexander has been fined $100,000 for confronting a referee during a live game action, it was announced today by Bryon Spruell, President, NBA League Operations.”
That’s ok Les Alexander, JJ Watt is here! JJ has your back Les!
JJ has been a visible Rockets’ supporter attending their home games when they’re playing.
With that, JJ posted a tweet saying:
“Les, I know you got it, but if you need us to chip in, we got you fam. #RunAsOne https://twitter.com/alexkennedynba/status/857343436776755202“
