    We live in Houston where football is king and which has a ton of transplants - it is what it is

    I just know that it will only get better the deeper this playoff run goes

    I think of the 3 teams the Rockets have the most loyal fan base. It's enough to fill the stadium but let's be real, the folks in Houston that can afford the lower bowl aren't necessarily down for the urbanization of sports that basketball brings.

    I was sitting in the lower level and the upper level was alot louder. Alot of people were on their phones snap chatting or posting selfies around me. I wish the food and bar were more efficient because I had to stand in line for 15 minutes for a Jack/ pepsi. The bartender informed me that they no longer carry coke at the TC which is straight up bs.

    Yeah in my feedback replies to Toyota Center I always mention this. The food lines are WAY too slow. It's ridiculous really. The BBQ line was 30 minutes.

    Where are the Toyota Center crowd haters? Where are you losers? Toyota Center was rocking last night and the crowd was there early and they were loud the entire game. SAS and the other national people commented on how loud the crowd was on Sunday night. Haters of the Houston home court advantage can go to hell.

    Maybe they can do what I've been asking for years and keep the lights on the court and not on the crowd

    There should be an app where you can order the food to be delivered to you.

    I wish they would stand up in a close game with 5 mins to go.

    But at least it sounded loud on teevee.

    I get that you cannot control what happens to the tickets once given away, but if giving to friends or employees I would make sure they attended the game (otherwise why even give them the tickets) in the past I've been fortunate to get tickets from work and I was told each time that if I didn't end up going I would never receive them again and I have to be there. Charities or clients are maybe different, but you do have some control if you give them to employees or friends

    They have that at the Twins stadium where we have season tickets. Not sure about the rest of the stadium. They had it in Green Bay and we were just in regular seats.

    And it wasn’t even that loud! It’s sad when you can tell from home.. not even CLOSE to Toronto, okc, etc and that’s after a 65 win season and the mvp

    Ratings are up 17%. That’s more than football and baseball can say. With the enhanced viewing experience from home which will only improve once they introduce VR/AR etc don’t look to the in-game attendance as kind of barometer for the popularity of the sport. Basketball is the future people. Advertisers know this so the owners do too.

    Now if only league pass didn’t black out for the stupid NBA TV games. How ridiculous.
