    Owner Leslie Alexander believes his Rockets are headed in the right direction


    "It's going to be an interesting season because we are going to probably bring in a bunch of young people."

    Sounds like it's going to be a long year.

    Yep. And somehow we'll still be near 41-41 in the end.

    Man, I wish les would sell the team, he is the number 1 reason this team is stuck in mediocrity.

    Lesocrity is where the Rockets are right now.

    Les needs to start eating meat again. I think his vegan diet is depriving his brain of necessary nutrients.

    This makes me feel so much better about the Rockets roster and the front office's ability to land solid players to help us in our quest to make the playoffs.

    Go Rockets!

    All teams in the NBA other than the Heat, Spurs, and Thunder are mediocre or worse and the Spurs aren't far away from it.

    Same old BS. Everyone Les employs is the best in the league, that's of course why we suck every year. Even when we had the most talented team ever assembled it didn't quite work out so well. Sell the team, Les. Spare us the destruction of our beloved franchise.

    Did he just call his players "assets"? Oh noes! Now we'll never be able to attract any free agents!

    With that said, I think Les really needs to sell the team. He is totally clueless.

    That's the feeling I'm getting.

    My gut tells me that Morey WANTS to tank, but Les wants to Win Now.

    This of course pulls the team in two different directions, and we get stuck on the Mediocrity Treadmill.

    I'm starting to wonder if Donald Sterling will sell the Junk before Les sells the Rockets...if I had a job at the moment, I'd bet you $10 in Tipjar money that Donald sells first. But I don't, so no bet.

    Junk = Clippers...I started calling them that when they tried to keep Clipper Darrell from being Clipper Darrell. I respect that fan--he's the kind of fan every team should have.

    Maybe Les will actually let us tank this year! It's an encouraging first step. Now Daryl needs to trade off the veterans and get McHale to stop his whining about the lack of leadership if he wants to keep his job.

    Trade everybody and build this team around Jeremy Lamb and Royce White.

    Now THAT would be a move in the right direction.

    I thought Les was a good owner. I was wrong, dead wrong.
