    I've been following the Rockets since '84 when they drafted Dream. As a fan, I've seen and experienced it all over the past 33 years. Though not a perfect owner, I always thought that Les did a great job by pursuing talent and not being satisfied with the status quo.
    Thank you, Mr. Alexander. You did a great job as a steward of the Rockets, and you leave it in great hands for the next owner. May you enjoy this next phase of your life.

    A great owner. Greatest in Houston history. Good luck to him. One of my favorite recent Uncle Les moments

    We complained about Le$ but he really grew the Rockets into a much bigger international brand. No hate if he wants to cash out.

    They should let Clutchfans vet potential owner candidates though. I'm just sayin

    Les will always get my love, granted, if he sells to a complete douche like Dolan or Vivek it will affect his legacy negatively. So lets wait and see how this turns out.

    No thanks, not going to give thanks until I see whom he sells it to.

    I'm going to miss him. He's been a great owner. I'm looking forward to the possibilities of bringing in someone younger. Hopefully they're committed to Houston the way les was.

    This offseason has been ****ing bananas.
