    Having a loud crowd. Make sure to be LOUD IN Toyota. Building a home court advantage for a young team is key in confidence. Remember the OKc thunder. Back with young KD, Russ Harden. That HomeCourt gave that team energy. Least us rockets fans can do

    Without the crowd, a young KD, Russ, and Harden would just be another Wood Green and KPJ.

    TC and loud crowd don’t belong in the same sentence

    TC environment sucked when we were contending. It’s about to be quieter than the local library on a Friday afternoon with this sorry team

    Yes, a loud crowd that yells out plays.

    No problem. We'll just get the message to the corporate season ticket holders to: a.) show up, and b.) make noise. That should do the trick.

    First, the Rockets need to get a single player with the upside of KD, Harden or Russ.

    Free tacos usually hypes a crowd. If too costly, they can play crowd noises on the arena speakers. A la 90's sitcom.

    If MMP can be loud so can Toyota. MMP isn’t that loud in regular season but for certain games it can sound like a playoff game

    TC environment has been trash since it’s inception, and that’s not changing

    it was weak when we were contending, and it’s gonna be an absolute joke now

    Lmfao.. Two things.

    One, that’s literally just not a Houston NBA crowd. I’ll be there, but I don’t expect it to be crazy.

    Two, we can’t play like we did last night, or it’s gonna be quieter than a library after hours. We get some exciting plays and a good game, it MIGHT be decent.

    I 1000% agree. If you have a young Durant, Westbrook and Harden on your team that would definitely expedite player development.

    And for certain games like playoffs and meaningful playoff games aren't happening anytime soon.

    MMP is loud because there's an actual elite product that's being supported. whatever this is that tilman has done, aint it

    Place will be dead to start the game. Yuppies roll in around the 3rd quarter to get drunk and talk about work. Are the Red Rowdies still around? With the Astros playing for a World Series berth I'd imagine its an even smaller crowd.

    I might go Sunday - Tilman already doing the $1 hot dog games!! LOL Bless his heart!
