    1. Michael Dell, a Houston billionaire worth $20 billion- Dell is in a slump as of the last 5 years maybe he buys his hometown team- dont know his sports interest

    2. Scott Duncan- inherited billionaire through his late father his net worth is $5 billion but his father broke his company of enterprise into 3 pieces into all siblings- maybe he can buy and own the rockets. Best thing is he is 34- he lives a low key lifestyle and i dont know his sports interest as well.

    I wouldn't sell to any Dallas or San Antonio or Los Angeles billionaires. Need someone young and as passionate as Leslie in the basketball side but know more on business side enough to have a larger crowd during games and bring lower bowl attendance up. Need someone who is as good as leslie at building relationships and committed to winning.

    Would it then become America's basketball team? :D

    Can we facilitate an ownership trade with Yao Ming?

    Lil Flip has said he was negotiating to buy the team before. Wonder if he shows interest.

    ....But in all seriousness. I would love Michael Dell to buy the team if he is willing to let the staff do there jobs and spend any amount to just win.

    May need a owner with Houston sports interest. Hope we get a great owner like we had in Les Alexander.

    Yao would be the best thing. Would probably have to round up quite a few partners though.

    Yao/Hakeem as part of any ownership group.... We need to be able to keep the "family" PR thread.

    I hope and pray it is some silicon valley geek, or a Microsoft guy who wants to own a team with unlimited amount of money....... but do not EVER want to get involved in how the team is running besides from a normal stuff....... So sits and watches every game, but lets the Gm and basketball minds run the show. That would be a dream.
