    Les is slick. Sold the Rockets to TF right before the covid virus destroyed value of the franchise.

    sold the comets to the Hilton furniture guy 1 year before they folded.

    les is like Morey, you don’t want to deal with him.

    Could this be a wright off? I glad he chose Houston kids and animals as the recipients. I am sure he benefits from it long term. Still nice to see Houston get some help. As bond salesman he doing better than most.

    Trying to move the team to Kentucky was pretty embarrassing.

    Good for Les, but the people that are trying to make this a love fest for him, he willingly sold the team to Tilman when many doubted he had the true funds to run a competitive team. I am all for getting the best deal but he also gave the team to a grifter and that is predictably turning us into a joke. Philanthropy aside, he dumped us to the highest bidder not accounting for if that person truly wanted to put a successful product on the court.

    Not even close because Les sold
    he's not an owner

    People who are owners are Cuban, Jordan, Bus family, etc

    He only sold for greed too

    If sell my house, it's not my house. I don't qualify as a owner

    I want my trophies and Rockets history back
