    I mentioned in an earlier post that im coming with my Dad to Houston from Australia for a week (23-30 April) to watch the Rockets for the first time.

    I am a huge Hakeem fan, and idolized him as a kid (still do). I'm wondering, while I'm in Houston, if anyone knows how I could meet him, Eg Scheduled public appearances, Mosque he attends, etc?

    It would be such an incredible thing for me

    Yeah, just tap him on the shoulder while he's on his knees praying.

    I strongly recommend you to NOT ambush Hakeem at a mosque. Have you considered tweeting him or Morey or the Rockets main twitter handle?

    Kinda hard to meet the guy...but I do expect him to be at the sidelines for the games.

    Sometimes he's at the playoff games. I know he was at Kobe's last game the other Sunday.

    If you get Lexus Lounge passes you can see him down there most games when he goes into Les' courtside suite underneath the West Club stands through the Lexus Lounge. I've stopped him for a pic before but he usually gets swarmed by people so you have to get lucky.

    Hire a little kid to run onto the floor to hug Brewer. This will distract security. It's all about misdirection. Make your move. Your style should look natural, not produced. Ease on in.

    Or you pay 200k for post moves.

    I see him almost every Saturday at Lifetime Gym in Sugar Land in the mornings. This is when he's living in town and not living in Jordan.

    Mosque is the surest way to go om Friday afternoons after lunch time. There are two that he feequents, but I'm afraid mentioning them will cause another Yao incident.

    You need to explain to them about the Yao incident.

    I've tried tweeting, messaging his Facebook, emailing his manager (have his email because I won a signed Hakeem ball in a contest and needed to arrange shipping).
