    If you are expecting wins, this is not the team for you. If you watch for signs of growth and maturity this will be fun. I am excited.

    Is it? Hollis is about as basic as it gets but hes not horrible.

    Id rather listen to him as background noise than someone like Reggie who tries to get himself over as a colour commentator.

    Yes, horrible. Ackerman was tolerable when we were good but now he is just annoying af. Why is Hollins there again?

    I'll be in the building on Dec 16th but other than that I'll probably only tune in if they have a marque matchup. I'll watch them from time to time for growth measurement purposes as well but it won't be in full game increments

    Houstonians will not support a loser and it's always been that way.

    the city barely supports the team when they’re winning and trying to contend

    many people in this city will go back to being Laker or Warriors fans or just stop paying attention to the team, and then follow the Rockets again when it’s convenient and they’re competitive

    I have never seen TC as empty as it was last night…I truly wonder what the players think when they see an arena that empty

    I really think they should dim the lights and light up only the court to try and cover the eyesore that is all those empty seats

    That should inspire people to go
    So they can buy a ticket and sneak down like 10 rows

    for me, being in an arena that quiet and empty is depressing

    sometimes during the K-Mart era, I’d be at TC in the lower bowl with damn near the whole row to myself with my section looking sparse as hell, and I hated when it was like that

    I just wish we could have a good home environment :(

    I've been to several games at Moda Center in Portland when the Rockets have come to town and I've sadly enjoyed those games more as an away fan because the vibe at Blazer games is always so good. Something has always been a little off at Toyota Center, the energy at the Summit/Compaq Center was better.

    I travel to see the team play sometimes mainly in Dallas or at Staples, and it has always been a good time with a little lighthearted trash talk because the arena is packed and the fans are into the game

    They lose money when arena is not filled. If they lower ticket prices more, or more promotions; buy x get y free...


    would more people go?

    Nobody wants to see/pay hard earn money to watch the Houston Bob Cats and Tillman poor excuse to put together a team. Who cares anymore.
    Here hoping Green can turn into a superstar. If not houston just going turn into the knicks with overpaid trash on the floor.

    Houston fans will barely support a winning basketball team. losers don't really exist.

    I've had it every season of Steve francis' career lol

    only last year I refused to watch. i really feel like if Tilman would've payed the tax just once harden would've believed this team was trying to win. harden saw the cost cutting, including hiring the cheapest coach on the market, and wanted out while he was still in his prime. Tilman dismantled a championship contender in just 3 short years, completely gutted from the court to the bench to the front office because of his cheapness.

    I could not watch and root for that team.

    however, this year I have to root for green and sengun who I believe are the real deal. I want to see them get better every game. I also want to see us get another top 5 pick, so I don't really care about losing.

    in short, yes green and sengun are worth your time and money.

    I was still in Houston for the Francis/Mobley years, back when you could watch the Rockets on local cable without needing a special channel. I loved that team and I was heartbroken when we traded for TMac. I bought league pass for this season, watched most of each game. I wish I could say I have the same enthusiasm for Green/Sengun as I did for Francis but maybe they just need more time.
