Clint Capela’s Range Rover was vandalized in the days following Rockets’ Game 6 loss to Warriors
The Range Rover of Houston Rockets center Clint Capela was vandalized in the days following the team’s Game 6 loss to the Golden State Warriors in the second round of the 2019 playoffs, according to Kelly Iko of The Athletic.
Capela struggled in the series against the Warriors and Houston fans were upset at the big man since he’s making a lot of money.
But the fans were even harder on him, calling for his head in trade talks and deeming his contract as a waste of money. His Range Rover was vandalized in the days following Game 6, according to two people close to Capela with knowledge of the situation. The windows were broken, the side panels ripped apart and the outside of the vehicle keyed and scratched.
Capela averaged 8.8 points and 10.0 rebounds in the six-game series versus the Warriors. He shot 53.5 percent from the field, but had a negative plus/minus box score in four out of the six games.
The Rockets signed Capela to a lucrative $90 million deal last offseason, so Houston fans want more from him. The center will make $14.9 million next season. There have been talks that the team is trying to trade Capela this offseason, but now that Jimmy Butler is reportedly headed to the Miami Heat, odds are Houston brings Clint back.
This is a bad look for Rockets fans. It’s just basketball at the end of the day. There’s no need to vandalize another human beings car.
