    See:

    Clippers (Donald Sterling who was notoriously cheap and ran his team like a business)
    Knicks (James Dolan)
    Thunder (cost the Thunder championships because he didn't want to pay luxury tax)
    Kings (meddles in draft picks and the team has no direction)
    Lakers (After Jerry Buss died, the rest of the Busses aren't good owners)
    Suns (also arguably cost the Suns a shot at winning it all by being cheap)


    where does this guy rank in the landscape of NBA owners?

    Yea, that’s the scary part, the positive aspects of this organization came before him.

    I think you're not the realist you believe yourself to be.

    It’s early, but I have to say I don’t have a good feeling about Fertitta’s ownership so far. Hopefully he’s on that learning curve and things will improve, but I don’t think there’s any doubt that he’s got the Rockets operating at less than an optimal level.

    Were 1,000 threads not enough for this conjecture, you needed 1,001?

    So this is the main reason why everyone has spurned us in NBA Free Agency/NBA Trades?

    Do you think we’re going to overthrow him? He owns the team! Either deal with it or GTFO but please, for the love of god, stop your incessant whining!
