    Les sold it to him because he'd rather have MONEY than be an OWNER OF A NBA TEAM.

    That's the truth.

    Chicken or Egg?

    It's the Chicken.

    @LosPollosHermanos

    If you get rid of your dog to another person just because you'd get like $100 for it,
    does that mean you gave a damn about that dog?

    No real reason to rid of the dog, you aren't in bad health or suddenly become not able to take of it.

    Les had a reason. He saw the potential vet bills he’d have in the future.

    Les realized what he might be paying in LT and said

    tilman being an a hole and being cheap

    has nothing on

    les threatening to move the team of the city didn’t build him Toyota center

    @Air Yordan

    oh Hakeem left cause Les wouldn’t pay him thank you money

    and Barkley dogged us cause Les didn’t pay him the back end deal for taking the minimum to stay under the cap

    Les became a billionaire because of the Rockets
    And relentless Chinese investments and promoting and running Yao Ming to the ground

    he had his end game in selling at maximum profit

    after all he’s a bonds salesman from New York

    I don’t see Tilman selling the Rockets anytime soon

    probably more likely to sell his casinos first

    Dude, choose the dog. Maybe it'll be a chihuahua. Even a small horse is huge!

    You can't even comment about Les if you weren't alive when he bought the team.

    tillmen became the owner because the 99ers relaxed and fell asleep. it is up to you now to right the ship.

    The only credit I give Les is his ability to not sound like rich a-hole in an interview or should I say the lack of interviews he did.

    I’m hoping Tilman is in “new owner syndrome” wanting to make an impact right away. I hope he learns over time...but I doubt it especially if he does “let go” Morey.

    Henry Abbot from TrueHoop heard his sources that Morey is definitely being let go. It’s just a delayed firing for his China tweet for optics.

    How did he become owner?

    I'll tell you.

    He got TOOK by the better business man. Gamed out of millions. Because he (Tilman) is not even really that good at the one thing he thinks he is good at. LULZ.

    If you think Les robbed Barkley... holy ****, he bent Tilman over the bathroom sink then curb stomped him.

    But Les doesn't run his mouth, does he? There's no - LOOK AT ME, LOVE ME, LOVE ME - gimmicks going on with Les. He just surgically dismantles anyone that tries to negotiate with him.

    If you want to read a book about business, you'd want the one written by Les.

    If you want LOYALTY - give the team to a dog. Or a 99'er.
