    Guys, just wanted to add something to Clutch's store.

    Worrell is being pushed out by the Rockets. They are working with Bill to make it look voluntary. Les wanted to go younger and wanted a breath of fresh air.

    Need an announcer that can keep up with a 7-second or less offense. Bill would probably break a hip trying to keep up.

    Ouch, I wonder why they are doing the only home games thing? Why not just fire him and give him a golden handshake contingent on saying he's retiring?

    I love the hire of Craig but he's not a breath of fresh air, he's been doing the radio too long to be fresh. Les is not looking like a great boss this off-season. Hopefully Barry buys the Rockets next year or at least becomes a partner.

    FWiW, if this is truly about age that is discrimination. I love Worrell and I'm sad he's going out this way.

    Les$ likely wants to have a young cheer leader without much clothing to replace Bill, so Les$ will make extra $100 money from this if he can get his wish.

    sounds more like worrell didn't stick to the script enough last season when he (understandably) groaned on air at the piss poor player effort and illogical coaching strategy

    Bill should keep showing up to games and doing his own broadcast on Periscope and single-handedly put Root Sports out of business.

    I'm calling it right now. New guy will emphasize on stats. Welcome to Morey's world, the stat chasing team.

    I wouldn't be surprised if this was part of the reason.

    It actually made me love Bill more though. Bill was a fan too, and he saw what we were all seeing. I'm glad he didn't treat them with kid gloves.

    What the ****.

    Im gonna go full DD and say **** the Rockets organization then. Bills the man.

    I bet Les and co didn't like Worrell being pissy and calling the team/players out last year for playing like garbage.
