One Houston Rockets veteran may be having his Eric Bledsoe “I don’t wanna be here” moment.

The Rockets got thumped at home on Monday by the LA Clippers, losing 122-106. The loss dropped Houston to a grotesque 2-12 on the season, making them the worst team in the NBA right now.

After the game, Rockets veteran Eric Gordon posted a curious message to Twitter. His tweet consisted of a single angry-face emoji.

Gordon is by far the longest-tenured Rockets player, having been with the team since the James Harden-Patrick Beverley era in 2016. But that also means Gordon has been subjected to a whole lot of losing recently with Houston going 39-129 (.232) over the last three seasons combined.

On a team predominantly populated by young guns under 25 years old, Gordon is an anomaly at 33 (soon to be 34 next month). Houston is clearly no place right now for a veteran still looking for his first career NBA title, so maybe Gordon is hoping that the recent trade rumors involving him start to pick back up again.
