Rockets in the News: Jabari Smith Jr., Rafael Stone, Tilman Fertitta

Sponsored by Clutch City Lager of Karbach Brewing, Monday’s The Lager Line podcast features reaction to recent Rockets news stories involving Jabari Smith Jr., owner Tilman Fertitta, and general manager Rafael Stone.

What on-court factors can Smith’s rookie shooting slump be attributed to? Hosts Ben DuBose and Paulo Alves explore where the blame should go and why head coach Stephen Silas and lead guards Kevin Porter Jr. and Jalen Green shouldn’t get too much of it.

Other discussion topics include Fertitta’s epic “Pray for Victor” rant on local television (clearly referring to top draft prospect Victor Wembanyama); Stone’s comments in a new Houston Chronicle interview regarding the status of the rebuild; and how Rockets players fared in several events at All-Star weekend.
