    It all comes down to poor owner Tilman affording luxury tax... the Rockets already have 2 $40 million players. And China plays a huge role in this... not Morey.

    So what if they want to annex Hong Kong and make them communist? The US has done that to many countries around the world except their democracy is corporate communism.

    Morey makes a lot of moves and none of them ever pan out ... good regular season records aren't what the other teams are playing for. He got lucky with Harden but after that it's been underwhelming outside of 1 good season of Paul.

    Won't be missed, it's time the Rockets enter a new era and prioritize scouting / athletic youth around Harden while his window is still open

    The wrong side of liberty and justice, yes.

    The right side of winning a trophy in a league full of collusion, yes.

    Play dirty to beat the dirtier

    Please Fertilla is perfectly willing to not go over the luxury tax even with China money. As did Les for decades before him when Yao was still playing. Shockingly making more money doesn't make rich people spend more money.

    Stop making yourself look stupid Chinese people.

    Loss of China equates to Ferarata losing $48-55 million a year. If the Rockets could not win with their money , it's going to be much worse without.

    Can we just make it a ban-able offence to open a new thread about this if it has no new relevant information?

    Your BS numbers aside since NBA is a revenue sharing league so your math makes no sense the Rockets would lose that much more than rest of the league... But even if for the sake of argument you are correct with that number, the Rockets had an income of $95mil last year. So umm... they can win just fine with $55mil less.

    Again, don't post stupid stuff that make you look stupid.

    Are you confusing net revenue's with net income?

    Rockets had a revenue of $326mil last year.

    You are simply r****ded if you think Houston cant support an NBA franchise when the Rockets won 2 championships before most Chinese even know the team existed

    This is totally thread-worthy and not painfully stupid at all.

    Terrific job.

    Yikes, wrong and angry. China is the reason a poor owner like Tilman could even go close to the luxury tax.

    https://www.foxbusiness.com/sports/nba-china-revenue-business-sponsors

    I'm just stating the facts, you need money to beat players that collude, and the Rockets do not have any. They also have one fo the 3 worst contracts in the league with Westbrook.

    The sly snake Kerr wouldn't say anything about China because he knows it gives Curry hundreds of millions to pad his already big bank, and it gives the Warriors the ability to pay lux tax. All those Chinese investors in San Francisco own the guy.

    Yes we did make a lot of money through China, but China is very wrong in this and had they just looked past it they wouldn't look like they idiots they do right now. Them throwing a temper tantrum I wouldn't accept from my 3 year old is the reason them and people like you are a laughing stock right now.

    Morey traded for Harden, signed EG13, signed Tucker, signed CP3 (which almost brought a championship), and now traded for Westbrook. To say none of his moves works out makes you sound like an idiot. We are championship favorites for a reason and China has nothing to do with it.
