    I really hope that’s what it looks like tomorrow at tip off.



    Social experiment: Tomorrow when you are out and about, at grocery stores or wherever, if you see anyone lazily wearing a Texans shirt or hat like a sports zombie, point at them and go “YYYYYEAHHHHHHHH ALRIGHT GOOOO ROCKETS!!!” and try to make them give you a hi five.

    I want our fanbase properly antagonized. Know your enemy, foreign and domestic.

    Eh. Our playoff crowds are good.

    This is a nonissue. Our crowds are just horrible during the regular season.

    The people reading this thread are not the people are going to be sitting in those seats. My guess is 60%+ of the people that have control of the tickets for the lower level seats are indifferent Rockets fans at best.

    Or.. it can look like last seasons playoffs for us

    I remember how embarrassing it was at tipoff.. on national TV.. and all you saw was tshirts on the back of empty seats as the game began. The game followed up an eastern conference team game where the home court team made the playoffs with a losing record, but their crowd was electric and full.
    Rockets in NBA playoffs but plenty of empty seats

    Absolutely embarrassing

    Yep, look at the last game of last season against San Antonio. It was depressing, and it was the most important game of the season.

    Buy a ticket and show up on time. Otherwise you’re like the person who complains about the government but never votes.

    Houstonians are pathetic, but have to say they can definitely get loud in the playoffs WHEN enough show up.
