This Was the Biggest Choke Job in NBA History

The Rockets had pushed the Golden State Warriors to the brink of elimination, but in Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals, the Rockets blew a 15 point lead to eventually lose the game. Now the Warriors will head to the NBA Finals to play the Cleveland Cavaliers for the 4th year in a row. 

Clay Travis thinks that when you factor everything in, the Rockets just completed the biggest choke job in NBA history. Everything was in the Rockets favor: up 3-2 after 5 games, a potential Game 7 at home, and a defense that was finally starting to gel. Well, then Chris Paul gets hurt and the team goes on one of the worst cold spells in the history of the the most inopportune time.
