J.J. Watt pleased fans mightily during Game 1 of the Rockets playoff series against Portland on Sunday night. Watt, showing his support for Houston, answered a jumbotron request to put on the red shirt given out to fans.
Then, Twitter nearly broke:

Watt wasn't the only celebrity enjoying postseason basketball in Houston. He posted this picture with Rockets Hall of Famer Hakeem Olajuwon.
Chris Myers was also sitting during Sunday's 102-100 overtime loss. Texans players have time off before Phase 2 of offseason workouts begin on April 28.
