    If any of you are in the market for a beach house of a trophies thief, here's one in beautiful California.
    He needs the 2.8 million profit so he can pay his employee
    himself

    Billionaire Leslie Alexander Increases Price of La Jolla Beach House to $17.8M

    Former Houston Rockets owner Leslie Alexander first listed his La Jolla beachfront home back in the spring of 2017, asking $16.4 million. Two and a half years later, and the home has resurfaced on the open market priced at $17.75 million. A price hike of over one and one-quarter million is designed to keep offers in the comfort zone—Alexander paid $15 million for the property about a decade ago.

    Freaking out about global warming, climate change, Les? The melting ice cap of Greenland flipping you out? The enormous chunks of ice, hundreds of square kilometers worth, breaking off from Antarctica got you nervous?

    Don’t you worry, Les. Someone will buy it while the beach is still there.

    If true, Les has more on his mind than losing his beach.

    If Matress Mac owned the Rockets, he would probably be giving air conditioners, and furniture away. It would be nice to see an owner that places bets on sports. The NBA probably wouldn't like it though.

    I don't think he's that rich. I don't know his investment history, but Gallery Furniture is just local.
    I think he could have bought maybe pre-yao ming.

    Tilman is not a good owner but I'm tired of people not comparing him to his peers cause he is the owner.
    Les sold the team, and people should compare him to his peers when he was the owner
    we all know he inherited a championship team and never got back to the finals without anyone from previous era.

    How long did that last, like 1 road trip?

    I would have absolutely loved to be a fly on the wall when the tofu was rolled out for the players.

    That’s an animal I’d like to have overnight. I think I won’t mention that to my significant other, though. ;-)
