    As a teacher and coach in a Title 1 school in the Houston area, these stories hit home and are always in the back of my head. I wasn't even going to comment on this story at the moment, let alone when I'm at work. But to see a comment like this makes me sick to my stomach. You're taking the brutal murder of children and making a comment about how NBA officials will alter their method of officiating to what? Punish the Rockets? Why? How? You should be better than this, I am completely ashamed that you're a fellow Rockets fan at the moment.

    Orthodox for sure. And they also called him Dimitris instead of Jim or Tim..most likely he's 1st or 2nd generation american.

    He's got a jacket with a big black celtic cross ornament on it. What kind of Muslim does that?

    They are saying he was a 17 year old.

    It's weird what you allow others to convince you to focus upon. You should work on not being so easily fed talking points.

    You hear about it more. Just like black people were getting shot up before you just have video of it now.

    a lot actually do. But I just make assumptions based on his name which indicates he's an orthodox christian. That's all.

    When Greeks say Orthodox, they mean Christian.

    Why don't you take a breather from this thread. Your comments are better suited for other parts of the Internet.

    In CP3's daily media interview, he opened with this ...



    Full quote ... and again ... this wasn't a press release. The media has scheduled meetings with him each day, now

    “First and foremost, aside from the playoffs going on which is minor compared to what is taking place down in Santa Fe,” Paul said. “Our prayers going out to the victims and the families having to deal with that situation. We have a lot of fan support there. Those people come out and support us night in, night out. This is minor compared to what those people are dealing with.”​

    As with many parents, Paul said he thought of his own school-aged children and other parents and cited the need to address the problem.​

    “It’s tough, man,” Paul said. “It’s scary that’s becoming a norm here. We got to do something about it. Yeah, I can’t imagine something like that taking place with my kids.”​

    Good point but you got it twisted. All NBA Refs are gun nuts (they love hot shooting!) so we should get some 8 on 5 action in our favor for once.

    With all the fervent praying it is absolutely astounding that these things keep happening.

    The shooter apparently was a maladjusted gun nut living in a trailer. Good thing there aren't too many of those types around.

    I'm sure the parents with their dead kids are totally cool now after those kind words.
