    What a profoundly weird basketball time capsule.

    "...take on Michael Jordan and the Wizards."

    "...Hakeem's only appearance in Houston with Vince Carter and the Raptors."

    Thanks for posting this.

    $360? :eek:

    Out of curiosity, how much do season tickets start at, these days?

    I wish Steve Balmer was our owner instead of Billman.

    Balmer is construction a new arena for the Clippers with new gym and facilities.

    Meanwhile, Rockets a championship contender is still using a crappy ass workout facility (hence many of our players work out in local gyms) and we don't even have a good practice court so we have to use the central court.

    Pretty sure if Balmer was the owner, we wouldn't be worried about paying for Danuel House right now who is a better fit than Shumpert.

    I currently live in Miami, for the Heat cheapest tickets are 25 dollars, times 41 games. 1.025 dollars.

    Look at the players in Rockets' uniforms.

    I am so thankful for James Harden

    That's also not the season "before" we moved to TC. 2001-02 is the season before Yao Ming. Yao played his Rookie season in The Summit. We moved in 2003-04. That mailer even mentions the move date, if you read it closely enough.

    That's cute they made it sound like getting Season Tickets for 2001-2002 allowed you to reserve seats for TC's first year. You would have had to get 2002-03 tickets and renew to achieve that.

    I remember this vividly because 2002-2003 is the year my buddy and I leap-frogged 12 rows and one section over, all the way to the best upper deck seats in The Summit (these were equivalent to 1st Row, 1st Luxury Box level in TC.) , to later get priority choice of 2nd-row dead center TC. We achieved the leap-frog because I convinced my buddy to take these "obstructed view" seats in Row 2, Center in the Summit, knowing they likely wouldn't be obstructed in the new stadium. And it was just barely obtructed by a glass-railing coming out of the food court tunnel in the middel of the upper deck....for those who remember the layout.

    big WIN!
