    If Greg would have only shown up on time for practice and the bus, he might have been a better player and the playoff series could have gone the other way.

    He also could have taught Royce the proper way to conduct himself on buses.

    Don't forget, Rockets will be playing in the Philippines for an exhibition game as well.

    Wrong fit for the series' match-ups IMO.

    Good, I knew the Vegas games were televised, but I couldn't remember if they had televised the Orlando games.

    Nooooooooooo!

    Had a feeling this would be the case, but was holding onto the little bit of hope until it was official.

    I had an absolute blast at last year's and was hoping to make the trip an annual thing. The fan and player interaction was fantastic.

    Orlando summer league, why can't you be open to the public?

    Dammit.... This really sucks... I guess Vegas doesn't want me there consecutive years. Went 2010, lockout 2011, returned 2012, 2013 nothing.... :-(

    I may got still go to watch other teams, but like heypartner said to me, I'll probably more prone to gamble more

    Hope they'll return in 2014....

    Vegas games are useless anyway. You have scrubs that will never make it in the NBA going off. All it does is give fans false hope.
