    Tilman is still trying to figure out how to make money off the press conference. He is considering only giving admission tickets to those that buy $100 worth or Landry’s gift certificates.

    So they're going with the understated, business-like approach. I wonder if Westbrook asked the Rockets for this? I can see him wanting to stay respectful of OKC.

    Genuine question though. How is it disrespectful to OKC if he makes this public?

    Though I can see him wanting to ease himself in. He's never played anywhere else and seems like a private guy.

    I think it's very smart of them to make it closed to the public. I'd be tempted to go and heckle Westbrook and I can't be the only one. It's going to be very hard learning to like that guy. I'm rooting for my Rockets to succeed but I'm not yet to the point I can ever imagine myself rooting for Westbrook.

    I love the way the rockets players are asking. Real, serious ready. Man this season anticipation is giving me goose bumps...I just think all the players understand the moment

    “Mark (Berman) you bring up the luxury tax or using the mid level exception, I’ll have Feigen take you out back and beat you with a bar of soap in a sock. This is supposed to be a festive event about how great I am.” - Tilman cornering Mark Berman outside the Tilman (Toyota) Center

    Glad it’s not some big parade like we won a championship. Those press conferences with Dwight and even Paul were kinda cringe worthy have a press conference then get to work on the chemistry building for the season !

    This is better and the less TF talks the better. Every time he speaks is kinda embarrassing.
    I forgot when it was I think it was during half time and in an interview that I heard him speaking. It was very cringey. I felt bad for Kawhi and PG the look on their face was priceless.

    I was also thinking they might be waiting for another trade in the works to finish before they make their introductions.

    Cut the cost?
