    Wow, I was looking forward to seeing this man not give a crap next season. I’m legit disappointed.

    I’ll honestly miss you, you acid induced old man.

    of course it has to be Tilman's fault when a 500 year old man retires.

    anyway, sad news. Bill W will definitely be missed, what a legend.

    This season killed Worrell's love of the game.

    I love Bill Worrell. He has been the voice of the Houston Rockets in happy times and very difficult ones. He is a legend. I never wanted him to leave. Good luck to you Bill. You'll be remembered fondly and missed by all of us.

    gut punch.

    Bill was OUR senile old broadcaster. Hate he went out on the worst season in franchise history.

    This.... soon enough they'll show their avi's.

    I for one am sad to see him leave after being the only voice behind Rockets broadcasts since I was old enough to remember. The color commentators have come and gone, but he is definitely a Houston sports legend that will never be forgotten... as senile as he may or may not have become. :)

    Damn. He's been with the Rockets before I was born. It's hard not to associate this team with him.
