    You actually need to have just previously played in the NBA and be white. No resume even needed at that point.

    After my days in the East Coast were done, I moved back to Texas. StMu. That's a Catholic university. 12 hours of theology made me a people person, seeing extraordinary men become even more extraordinary through Baby Jesus. Have you guys heard the story of Jonah? The league is the big fish. The rockets are Jonah. See some people think it was a whale but that's people confusing Jonah with Pinocchio and Moby's Dick. That's a joke. You'll laugh later. ....


    oops I thought you guys meant Texans were looking for an assistant GM.

    They need more actually player experience in their front office. Someone that is bright and hardworking that played in the NBA or at a high level overseas would be ideal. The problem is that the pay may not be appealing enough.

    Ryan Anderson is someone that would meet the requirements of experience as a player and intelligence. David West, Nick Collison and Calderon all would seem to be smart choices.

    I'm the best Blanka player on SF2CE in the world. Does that count?

    Skills include mildly funny sarcasm once you get to know me and I make pretty good oatmeal for breakfast.
    One time I climbed a tree with barbed wire on it and I will literally do this job for minimum wage.

    Hired?

    EHondaHarden challenges you!!!

    Whoever could fleece Morey to give him 80M for doing nothing must be very intelligent. :D Sorry, can't resist.

    I think Battier would be a good former player who is smart.

    Maybe Jack Easterby will be fired soon and is looking for a new job though the NBA might be too urban for him.

    If Tilly was smart, he'd hire away Battier in some capacity.

    But this is more than likely going to Patrick when it's all said and done.

    You're being modest. You come up with some very good ideas because of your creativity.

    Huh?

    Did even little Patrick realise he doesn't want to be a part of his father's dumpster fire?
