    Le$ is a great owner. Very passionate and dies for the team

    Only person who can replace that is a combination of Clutchfans

    So let's all pull together. $20,000 each and we can raise over 1 billion. I know big texx himself is good for 100 mills

    We've had an owner since the early 1990s that has been determined to win a championship at any cost even if it hasn't happened.

    Say what you want, but under Les we've brought in Barkley, Pippen, Dwight, Harden, TMac, Chris Paul, etc. New ownership means a change in philosophy in the organization.

    Finding the right owner is going to be huge for the future of this franchise. Need one who is hands off and willing to pay the tax at the same time.... Gonna be interesting to see the suitors start to leak out.

    This is definitely bad news. In this day & age there has to be a higher probability that a new owner makes us worse.

    Les wasn't perfect but he always wanted to compete.

    not so sure??? this definitely isn't good news. Les has been a tremendous owner, one of the few that never rested on his laurels and was always looking at improving the team. more importantly is he hired the right guys to run the FO and got out of the way. there's a better chance than not that the next owner will not be a solid an owner as Les.

    Last time the Rockets had an ownership change, they won 2 championships in a row. Just curious why Les do it now.

    *%#$!!!!! He's been my favorite owner in this city. He's gone above and beyond to attempt to take us back to the glory days.
    What's next for Lex? with that laugh, I'd say world domination.
