    tinman's copy already has some pages purposefully torn out, and a few more accidentally stuck together.

    And I hear Morey had them make a special-edition just for DaDakota commemorating VSpan's game when he shot 1.000

    btw: is #33 in the book, anywhere?

    That media day picture of him in the middle of Hakeem and Barkley makes me puke. Or all the other ones of them on the court together, for that matter.

    ICYMI, and didn't click the link to read Clutch's article about this:

    Our good friend Jeff Balke @Jeff wrote several of the articles found in the book, entitled Celebrating 50 Seasons: The Official History of the Houston Rockets. Jeff would text me every so often during the writing process to say, “I just had lunch with Tracy McGrady!” or “Robert Horry just called me!” — so I’ve really been riding the fantasy and looking forward to seeing the finished product.​

    very cool. Awesome they were wise enough to choose him as one of the writers for this book. Makes it a must-buy for me, fo' sho. For newbies here, Jeff is/was a cfnet Moderator and championed a grassroots fan campaign to "Save Our Rockets" when Les somewhat threatened to move the team. He was also on the innagural Rockets Fan Council -- an official Rockets council -- and been writing for the Houston Press for a long time.

    twitter handle to follow him, if interested

    They are selling it at Rockets Store in Toyota Center.

    It's not actually online anywhere, but you can call them to ship it. Here's the phone number -- 713-758-7770

    And Rocketsshop online is offering free shipping for a limited time on orders over $50. Maybe they will match that, if you buy more stuff by calling, vs online. I'm not if the TC store is affiliated with the online store. http://www.rocketsshop.com/
