Former Death Row Records CEO Suge Knight picked the Houston Rockets to win the 2018 NBA Finals while sitting in a courtroom.
Per Marisa Gerber of the Los Angeles Times, after Knight was told to return to court in May for a criminal threats proceeding, the judge asked who he thought would win the NBA title.
"Houston," Knight answered.
The judge responded by telling Knight the Rockets are a "good pick."
They can clinch a spot in the Western Conference semifinals with a win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday.
Houston set a franchise record with 65 victories during the regular season to earn the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference playoffs. The Rockets' last championship came during the 1994-95 season when they swept the Orlando Magic in the NBA Finals.
