    He has a deep hatred for Harden, wants to make sure he wastes his prime completely.

    Tilman is secretly a Harden hater, it all makes sense now. :eek:

    Not Tilman's fault that cp3's hamstring gave out 2 seasons ago, nor is it his fault that his coach and players let the warriors off the hook as soon as KD went down and the next game, when KD didn't even play.

    prokhov bought the nets for $1.7 billion in 2015. two years later, he sold off a 49% stake for $2.3 billion.

    Is it his fault that he traded away a free first rounder just to go under the luxury tax. Is that his fault ? Some of you Tilman fanboys crack me up.

    If by mess you mean a legitimate title contender who came within one win of the Finals last year then sign me up. Some of you guys whine so much you create a revisionist history.

    Show me proof, if not then chill out and let the man who owns the team run it the way he deems fit.
    Last two seasons we have had more than enough talent to beat GSW and win titles. Our mentality, execution and game plan sucked on both occasions, that's on the players and coaches.
    Tilman is not the one missing 27 3s in a row, nor is he the one that did not take advantage of 3-2 lead on GSW, 2 seasons ago with home court, or take advantage of a team who just had their most unguardable player go down.

    Y'all business tycoon fans are in the wrong forum.

    Worse than Cal for the Texans? Whose most noteworthy decision so far is rolling without a GM the rest of the year? Not a son, but would Tilman's kid be worse than the absolute travesty of Drayton's last few years as Astros owner?

    The bar is awfully high to be considered a bad owner in this town.

    I just know that the children of the rich who inherit their way into prominence tend to be disasters; James Dolan, the Buss kids, Trump ...

    Good article but from 2017. I argued at the time it was a shell game. Right around now is when the debt noose would tighten so I ask @heypartner to provide an update to 2019? How goes?

    it was probably when he saw the weakness of a man right through his iris

    Maybe that's why the teams he put together never won a title (although he still has the trophies from Steve Patterson's teams).

    You've got to take big risks to win big.

    The biggest risk Les ever took was trading an already-falling-apart Francis for an about-to-fall-apart T-Mac.
