    That's on Morey. He is the one who hands out contracts. Don't forget the Ryan ANderson contract....

    Because he wanted to and had the means.

    Wait.....Morey is responsible for signing off on these deals?? I am finding new information every day on here. Today is that Morey can sign whomever he wants because he obviously controls the money.

    I would push back on the "Morey being washed" narrative. He was given a directive last year to get under the luxury tax. How he pulled this off without giving up even more assets was amazing. Early season misses aside, his February maneuvering to get under the tax was probably more impressive than the work he did the year before when he earned the Executive of the Year award.

    He has grown to hate the increasing urbanization of the Toyota Center Entertainment Experience.

    Because he is 62 with 5.2 billion dollars to his name and loves toys. Restaurants, casinos, college boards, television shows, yachts, mansions. What else can he buy? How about his favorite basketball team that he tried to buy the last time it was for sale? Le$ said YES!

    Also he enjoys logging on to CF after Morey tweets out something about chess or free agents and reading the meltdown you guys have ever minute goes by we don't sign or trade for magical player just because you want them here. *Tip- Most stars go where they want... Butler wanted Heat on the beach, King James wanted LA and so on.

    You guys look at this in a vacuum, you forget where this started with Morey in 07. Yao and Tracy close but too injury prone. No rebuild allowed, 09 best player is Kevin Martin and Scola. 2010 Yao makes a 5 game comeback... 2011 no stars no tanking... 2012 turns "assets" into future MVP. Howard joins for 3 seasons despite the Fakers begging for him to stay. After Howard flakes out. EG and Ryan added. CP3 joins because he wants to win. GSW have a dynasty and the officials love them some GSW.

    See you at the Golden Nugget this weekend, or the Kemah boardwalk or Saltgrass etc...

    I have to concur why did he buy this team if you are not going to make any moves or do anything

    Would you rather have a non Houstonian who can deliver CHAMPIONSHIPS or a Houstonian who cheaps out and will deliver 2nd round exits?
    @tinman @Rasheed since y'all hate on Les and love Tilman

    Example: Both Warriors owner Lacob and Guber were born in the Boston area, Massachussussetttes and delivered Championships. You think Warriors fans wish they had some other local owner and ZERO rings?

    Cuban is from Pittsburgh and delivered Mavs a championship.

    What the hell you on about?

    When you don’t know the real history of the rockets and you refuse to learn
    Then you aren’t a fan period

    It’s pretty simple

    It’s like saying you like Star Wars and you don’t know who Luke Skywalker is

    But go ahead fake fans and continue to want some greedy Floridian to come back here
