    Ive been preaching how lucky we are to have a competent owner for a while. It can get a lot worse.

    No way. I think Les also owns Toyota Center, so whoever buys will be buying the property as well. Not saying they couldn't flip it, or invest in it otherwise.

    But can't see them moving the team

    Not good, we have a really good thing here. A new owner can really only mess things up. Better chance at new uniforms though.

    Oh wait.. Le$ selling the team because he is old not because he is in financial trouble?

    What shitty timing.. right in the middle of trying to recruit Melo. Couldn't he have waited 2 more months!?!?

    This has to be why he wasn't at the CP3 press conference.... Crazy how they kept this under wraps.

    Not good news at all. Les was willing to spend and let Morey do his thing. Not happy about this.

    Meanwhile I bet the usual whining fools are thrilled.

    I hope Le$ sells it to James Harden and his posse. I am sure Harden can come up with the cash.

    That would be one more role for Harden. He is already player, coach and GM Make him the official owner too. And he know where home is

    Could Les buyout the Rockets and allow the team to pursue free agency?

    This was something weighing on him a bit & came to conclusion last few days something he wanted to pursue.

    He is always in everything 100% when he's in it. When he mentioned it to me this morning that he made up his mind, I was very surprised. At the end of the day, nothing truly surprises me. He's a man of many passions & things he wants to do & opportunities he wants to pursue. Not something we had a lot of conversations about. I was surprised.

    He made a decision. Once he makes up his mind, his mind is made up.
