    Have to say I feel honored to get a mention like this. There's no better feeling to know that I tried to help the team and the team found it helpful. :)

    What was the idea - Win a championship next season, because there isn't an idea much better than that.

    Hopefully the idea was to have a legit starting center on the roster.

    honestly, I'm not quite sure which idea(s) the rockets liked that won me the bitcoin. - I sent in 22 emails since June 2010, ranging from trade scenario discussions to PR managements, draft scoutings and potential CBA loopholes.

    I'm just glad that at least some of those brain storming results seemed to be at least helpful to the Rox management. :)

    I'm getting old.

    I had to google "bitcoin"...

    ... and I still don't understand the the "add # in front of something" movement (i.e. #bitcoin )

    My understanding is it starts a trend of something. For example, if all of us signed up for twitter and all ended our tweets with #GoRockets or something like that, it would show up on twitter's home page as what's trending right now.

    Congratulations.

    I remember Jerome Solomon asked Morey on Twitter awhile back if he could enter the contest and Morey said yes. So that’s just one brilliant sports mind you beat out. ;)

    I'm starting to see what's going on. Morey is hoping a little recognition will make you feel satisfied and you'll stop pestering them with 'advice.'

    :p

    In one of the emails, I actually stole Solomon's idea of "Winning as much games as possible without winning any games" (that's how Morey summarized Solomon's suggestion) and added a couple of twist to makes it semi-realistic...

    It would be funny if that's the winning email though :grin:
