    Chen seems like a decent enough guy. I don't think it's CHEN who's the problem. It's the ROLE in the first place.

    To each his/her own, and if reading tweets during a game broadcast has mass appeal, so be it. But I just don't see the point in it.

    No offense to Chen. I hope they find another role for him if they later determine that his current role is a waste.

    Lets hope that the misogyny that is lurking on these forums won't rear its ugly head after I post some pictures of charismatic females in sports media!

    It really isn't that hard to do auditions for charismatic women that can hold the audiences attention with their speaking ability.

    Ho_Chen is a class act and a professional, I hope he retires a Rocket.

    I think it's kinda silly how they have a guy who's job is to read his phone, but he's okay I guess..

    Yeah, I'm very aware of that, I read the profile. Howard being from Canada messed up my phrasing, really wanted to say other Taiwanese-American.

    When in doubt,

    Howard Chen looks like a nice person. You can tell he is very passionate about his work. The problem is he doesn't have the looks or charisma nor is he funny enough to do TV reporting. To make things worse, he doesn't seem to have expert knowledge on basketball either. There are some Asian guys are doing pretty well reporting sports, for example Cary Chow, Michael Kim, both from ESPN.

    IMO, Howard Chen should just stick with behind the scene reporting or a newspaper/magazine reporting. If CSN really has to find an asian guy to read those stupid tweets, I would rather Kevin Jumba or Ryan Higa (Lin good friend). At least, both of them are funny.

    If they're determined to have an Asian reporter to capitalize on Linsanity though, it might be hard to find an Asian female reporter in Houston that can hold the audiences attention with their "speaking ability", like the lovely ladies you posted...

    Not quite. This is more like if the Rockets decided they wanted to add something to the game by having a member of the Launch Crew be a sixth player on the court during the game.

    I doubt that dude would score or defend too well. And the inevitable technical fouls for having six players on the court would really detract from the team's overall effectiveness.

    :p

    Agreed. No offense ... but the first impression of Ho Chen to me, as a Chinese, is bad. He looks ugly, awkward and nervous to me. But I hope he can keep doing some other things right. :)
