    Bribes in this country work differently than in other countries.

    A lot of conversation on what the players expect the owners to do... well... here's where a potential source of the grievances.

    *EDIT* Could have used the money to keep a center...

    I made the primary source accessible. Y'all can draw your own conclusions.

    Yeah, Tilman's political leanings (esp when it comes to Trump) are on the list of reasons I dislike him as an owner of my favorite team... And I'm sure in today's climate, it has to affect our players' willingness to succeed and make him more money, whether consciously or not.

    The "good news", if you can call it that, is that most of our opponents' owners are probably not a whole lot better. Almost certainly not Clay Bennett, at least.

    The entire game of politics is to do “a little good” by taking bribes from both sides while still maintaining a false dichotomy of us vs them. It’s a dance they almost all participate in, with rare exceptions.

    The entire game is built to keep you from seeing the truth. But it’s all available to see if you have an open mind. Follow the money, match up the action against the rhetoric.

    Well that doesn't leave them a whole lotta options lol. We're talking about a demographic of rich, racist, old money, white dudes. How do you think they all lean? Some teams that won fairly recent titles were Trump donors, but before Trump was running for president (like Holt on the Spurs). But it would certainly help explain why those bitch ass Whoreiors get so many calls.

    Still, I could swallow that pill a lot more easily than my prior theory about the NBA just hating James Harden because of twitter and general fan negativity.

    I think the correlation is the rich supporting the rich to stay rich. Yes he did contribute to both but leans HEAVILY to one side. (Currently the bad side!) ;)

    This in no way means Tilman is/is not racist, go or bad. What he said the other day I thought was pretty awesome.
    "We all have to work together and recognize what other people are dealing with. It’s a different world. It’s a different generation. If you’re not a flexible person and you don’t see other people’s views, you’re not going to do well in this world today. And so I respect them. I stand by them. They’re my partners."

    As a basketball decision maker the fan base it pretty frustrated with him but I am gonna give him about 5-7 years before I pass judgement. Let's see if he can sustain this level of excellence we have had or if he breaks it by thinking he knows best.

    There's no conspiracy theory.

    The Rockets would have won every year Yao was there.
    China money.
