    I'm reading it as he didn't want to leave PHI. Not that he didn't want to go to HOU specifically.

    I don't blame him. The start of the season has been a dumpster fire, the owner is clearly a disaster of a human being and it looks like they're headed to tank city. Why would he want to come here (whether Rockets fans wanted him or not)? Stone has done a stellar job thus far, and Tilman seems to be doing his part by letting Stone do his thing, not interfering and (mostly) shutting the hell up. But the franchise has a lot of rebuilding to do on its reputation before Houston becomes a destination city for star players again.

    He would get exposed from day 1.

    Philly is super lucky they got Embiid before Simmons, as often-injured as Embiid was in the early years.

    Simmons with no shooters would have been cellar dwellers, even in the East.

    I was pretty ecstatic when Ben Simmons wasn't traded to Houston.

    He always brings up the fact that he "lived in Houston" and "Austin is so much better"

    Dude lived in Spring or something and acts like he's a Houstonian.

    Houston is awesome. Anyone who says otherwise can **** off.

    Why are you confused? The owner is an asshole. What more reason do you need?

    I have a theory why some star players might not want to play in Houston.
