    You beat him in a shootout with little toy basketballs?

    No, that was after the shootout. Kenny signed the toy balls.

    Awesome story, man! Thank you for sharing. I always enjoy reading these personal accounts of meeting anyone associated with the Rockets. I'm sure that this experience was very rewarding for you and probably something you'll never forget.

    I like Kenny, but I'm tired of his lukewarm support for the franchise that gave him a name. Without Hakeem Olajuwon, Rudy T, etc..Kenny would be a nobody.

    Unfortunately, he's let his role on TNT elevate his ego to heights that are downright ridiculous. His judgments and comparisons of players seem to be misplaced, when you consider his own career numbers. He was average at best, with a couple of good seasons here and there, but he speaks with a tone that should be left for guys like Steve Nash.

    Oh well. Perhaps one day, he and Chuck will be more supportive of the Rox. Even with our abysmal record, you would expect a little more.

    Anyway, thanks again for sharing!

    Um... this is not the tone I get from Kenny Smith at all. He generally always does his best to rep Htown. When I say his best, I mean it is a national analyst that shouldn't have any affiliations.

    Congrats OP.

    What is Morey waiting on? He'd rather honor a washed up player from the past during the Thunder game then sign a superior and younger talent who's ready to contribute.

    Typical Morey.

    Nicely done! I beat Luther Head and tied Aaron Brooks in a 3 pt contest a few years ago at one of those fanfest things. No video or anything though.

    Kenny Smith is a racist, he just said the Asian man beat him in ping pong.

    All lives matter

    PS: if the Asian looking dude turns out not to be Asian then my apologies to Kenny.

    Yes, I am.

    I'm Asian; although as a Filipino, ping pong isn't necessarily the sport of my people, so I'm not offended. Hell, even if I was Chinese, that would be an incredibly stupid thing to take offense to.
