    I'm just curious. How much did you spend on the Rockets last year?

    I’m not Nook, but of course he did. That was a life altering moment and he definitely didn’t expect the outrage. He will benefit from stepping away and going to the Clippers in a year. Ballmer is going to fill his pockets.

    what GM you knows quits during a coaching change and leaves the team and also the same gm who makes the picks and trades the assets who we have makes all the hiring decision and might i add should has added Ty Lue instead of the Clippers and emphasis this small ball on a team and forces us to watch this all season long and in the playoffs and then has the head coach quit on the plane ride home and then the GM quits while on a coaching search don't you think he should have quit after the coaching search was made.

    13 straight WINNING seasons is nothing to show for it?

    Executive of the Year, Coach of the Year, MVP is nothing to show for it?

    Most winningest team in last 5 years is nothing to show for it?

    2 WCF appearances is nothing to show for it?

    Top 5 best offense in last 4 seasons is nothing to show for it?

    Most franchise wins in a single season is nothing to show for it?

    I am almost certain you remember NOTHING of the years wandering the desert prior to Morey.

    Those were dark dark YEARS for true Houston Rockets fans.

    Complete and absolute boycott is warranted. I am hoping Harden is traded sooner rather than later, as he deserves to be happy after all he has done for the franchise and its better to move on with these changes. Really curious if Tilman can handle this team financially if no one is in seats.

    I am happy for Daryl, who will finally get a chance to work with an owner who is not broke and won't ask him to sell picks for money.

    Keep going...all of that and not one championship. I was around during the 90s Clutch City Rockets days, so I remember what they were after that.

    The accomplishments you brought up are really cute but none of that matters. Championships are what matters the most. No-one except for Rockets homers will bring up those cute accomplishments that you just brought up. 0 titles to show for it.

    I love winning and championships but LOSING season after season after season with no hope in sight was worse, MUCH WORSE, than winning.

    And I dont believe for a second that you were around after the 90's championships.

    That kind of pain does not go away, ever, so stick your "cute" remarks up where sun never shines.

    Just being a fan brings in a lot of money. I hope you dont watch any games either.

    masai, Ainge, Myers, the guy in Denver , Miami, Dallas, presti... then there’s other executives like Jerry west that are influential in deal making.

    he’s good - DM - and you dont want to take a step back. But here we are.

    LOL literally all of the NBA adapted our model. All we did was cut out mid range and shot more threes. Miss me with this regressive mindset.

    Bro with all due respect. what you learned as a youngster and grew up watching is not coming back. We play real basketball, people copy our model. Analytics is how we became so successful. Im not saying you should ignore whats on the court but who's to say Morey even did that.

    I mean...the constant player rotating is what made is really successful.

    Miami, Dallas, Denver, Warriors were all allowed to be bad. Morey was not. Meyers also got EXTREMELY lucky that he never actually he had to pay Steph Curry when he got injured. Ainge got lucky because he swindled Brooklyn. Celtics are good but we've had just as much success had they've had over the years. Presti and Masai are the only ones there is an argument for. Morey is at least top 3 imo.
