    Its only half empty on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, the rest of the week its packed. Shouldn't be too much of a problem anymore now that we'll a crapload of national games. I'm anticipating our Christmas day game, vs the heat at home would be nice

    If the Rox don't have that lower bowl filled with bodies next season, Les ought to move the franchise to Seattle.

    This is what i want to hear. Currently, we are in the bottom half of the western conference playoff teams with 2 centers and d-mo/jones starting at PF.

    It's something I thought about, but I don't think Harden is at the level Tmac was quite yet, nor is Dwight at the level Yao was. Hopefully, their health is much better though.

    Morey: "James Harden is the best player out there Dwight could join... We've got more draft picks, more free agent money, and more great young players for him to join than any other team."

    At least as a closer. To prevent hack a Dwight! He can play the 4th quarter and then ice those feet down.

    Also like to give a shout out to David Stern from vetoing our trade for Nene and Pau Gasol. This in turn ended up with acquiring James Harden. Dodged a bullet there.

    Gave us the All-Star Game, where I think Dwight found us to be more appealing than initially. It also gave Parsons and Harden a chance to start recruitment which I think helped us a lot when the season ended.

    Thank you David Stern. PS: You were also entertaining on draft night. Have a great retirement.

    In hindsight, Stern really screwed over the Lakers and his veto benefited the Rockets immensely. Ironic because Lakers are Stern's team lol.

    Wow, I drove from CO to TX and all hell broke lose today. Great day to be a Rox fan. So much potential, now Morey can build around 2 Stars. Huge accomplishment in 1.5 years for a GM to get this done. He also got rid of Royce "The Cancer" White. Now we just need to continue to be wise and build the team around Howard, Harden and Parsons.

    Do the rockets have all their 1st round draft picks or do they owe any for the future?
