    Lebron James and his Friends

    And right after that he plays for us. Probably short term.

    Don't move the goalposts.

    You were blowing this off as something "people" were bringing up, I simply stated that it isn't a out of left field idea brought up by fans for no reason if the guy himself inserted himself into the conversation.

    AS I said, I dont care whether he has the money or not, nor do I think he has any chance.

    Learn to actually keep up with what is being said.

    Fertitta, Beyonce/Jay-z, Yao, Hakeem and Mattress Mack should team up to buy the team.
    Houston all star ownership group.

    Tillman Ferttita, worth about 3.1b - Majority Owner
    Hakeem, worth about 200m - Minority Owner #1
    Yao, worth about 120m - Minority Owner #2
    Mattress Mack, worth about 75m (if you need him) - (possible) Minority Owner #3

    I'd be happy...

    Like I said before, if Yao had the money he will be the perfect fit. The team will not move to another city.

    Tillman can put in about 2 billion of his own money
    Yao and several chinese investors could probably put in about 500m-750m

    Man, no way he can afford the Rockets, and if he could it's because he's doing something illegal which the NBA will uncover after an anal exam vetting process.

    Ma and Yao are friends too. I'd expect for them to get into the bidding.
