    honestly, who wants to sign to play in this circus? new unproven coach and unproven GM. disgruntled pre-Madonna super stars that are half way out the door. A Trump loving owner who skims off the top. No real prospect for a turn around but no plan and no vision for the future. Sign me up!

    How much you wanna bet that Tilman gets the Rockets to the minimum NBA salary before he's all done?

    Stone actually said this with a straight face...it was impressive

    I love Silas and am very happy he’s here, but when he was praising ownership so much during his press conference, I’m like, “did Tilman threaten this dude?”

    I almost thought the same thing .... BUT assets are limited and you can't just squander them - not using it is doing just that,

    You use it on the best player you can get - another asset to move down the road.

    This rebuilding process isn't going to happen overnight , may as well use every tool at your disposal.


    Saying that , I don't believe they use it , I think they are just over the salary floor when its all said and done.
    That figure is $98,226,000 - the absolute minimum amount they can spend - they might be a dollar or two over that amount.

    He might not care what us commoners think .... but he damn sure cares how much money we spend at his venues and if we can mobilize enough people to boycott those .... he'll get the point when it affects his bottom line.

    Funny , we're thinking the same thing (WTF?) I made a post just above this one making a similar comment.

    $98,226,000 That's the magic number.

    Still waiting on the News that Tillman Fertitta and Family are Arrested for Tax Fraud. That looks like the Future.

    Who is going to bail him out, Donald Trump?

    Tillman Fertitta is going to sell the Team, I really believe he will one day.

    Tillman Fertitta bought the Franchise because of China. China will never support the Rockets ever again or the NBA.

    China wants to Develop the Underdeveloped Parts of the Country.

    Daryl Morey did a Fantastic Job for China having a Excuse to leave them.

    Tillman will sell the Rockets within a couple of years. It's impossible to run High Salaried Players.

    Was trying to clown GSW for investing while their team still has a punchers chance. Tilman thinks it's hilarious, obviously it's best to ship all the pieces that made us one of the best teams in the league over the past few years. That's the smart move.

    Tilman just trolling Rocket fans at this point. He definitely hears all the criticism and hate and if he doesn't read them, I bet other people tell him.

    We should give everyone on the Rio Grand Valley squad a contract - yeah that’ll save this Tillman clown some money.

    You are 100 percent right but I don’t think there will be fans in the stands to boo

    We named democratic voting stupidity, so I’m sure we can classify trumpism as well.
