    He is still deciding on the time. ESPN reports that he is flying back to LA to announce the final decision. We should know by the 16th.

    I'm hearing it's 50/50 we'll never see this joke again on Clutchfans. That's leaving a lot of joke on the table.

    Not only that but Stephen A. following up with his 50/50 for Melo to LA was the icing on the cake.

    ESPN and there 50/50s can move around somewhere.

    I think the Rockets plans are this:

    1. They are going to hold a pre-pre-press conference to let the press know the exact day and time they will be having a special pre-press conference.

    2. Then, during the pre-pre-press conference, they will be announcing that the special announcement will be letting the press know the day/time they willl be giving information about the press conference. This will be the pre-press conference.

    3. Then, during the 2nd press conference (forever to be known as the pre-press conference), they will let the press know the day/time of the press conference welcoming Dwight to Houston.

    4. During Dwight's press conference, they will announce a post-press conference to analyze the press conference.

    5. During the post-press conference, they will announce a post-post press conference in which members of the media can discuss the handling of the pre-press conference.

    6. There are rumors that at the post-post-press conference, there may be information about a post-post-post press conference to discuss the ramifications of the pre-pre-press conference. Chris Broussard has reported that the post-post-post-press conference regarding the pre-pre-press conference is right now a 50/50 proposition; although he says there's only a 25% chance of that, he feels this is much better than his earlier 10% certainty about the 50/50 prediction.

    ** Apparently, his primary sources are reliable because they got their information from a secondary source who had it on good authority that 3 tertiary sources confirmed the post-post-post press conference.

    He will keep you post-post-posted.

    Why are the Rockets not letting fans in? They always do.

    Let's make all the enthusiastic fans stand outside in the heat!

    Yeah, that'll turn out great :rolleyes:

    C'mon now Rockets...
