The Houston Rockets have a doghouse. Every team has a coach's doghouse.
There are varying reasons for players to find themselves in that dreaded place. It could be arriving at camp out of shape. Or maybe it has to do with a player not proving that they can be trusted in certain situations. It also could be that the player and coach have simply gotten off on the wrong foot.
No matter the reason, once players find themselves in the doghouse, they know that their cherished playing time will be hard to come by until they can play their way back into the good graces of the powers that be.
