    it can, but the atmosphere is often extremely mediocre at TC...I went to games against the Wolves and Jazz back in 2018, and it was meh...I went to game 1 against GS, and it was good, but MMP seemed like Oracle during the 2007 We Believe Warriors for the entirety of that 2017 championship run

    I’d be downtown, and the streets were flooded with Astros gear...MMP seriously seemed like the loudest stadium in all of baseball

    Rockets just don’t get the love the Texans and Astros do...the Texans don’t even have to be good, and if the Astros aren’t crap, they always seem to eclipse the Rockets with ease

    A multi-year Sam Hinkie “trust the process” tank job in Houston? Rockets might as well not even exist then.

    We don’t have the money to pay Sam, unfortunately.

    Hinkie is blacklisted by Silver. He literally can't get any jobs working in the league.

    Hinkie costs real money

    Tilman Jr works for his allowance.


    You do the math.

    Hinkie deserves time and autonomy. Fertitta-owned businesses will never offer that.

    Tilman Jr, after successfully pulling off four consecutive losing seasons: "You're kidding me. We don't have a 1st-round pick THIS year, either?"

    LOL! I would piss my pants.

    And no way would Hinkie come here. Daryl would let him know about #Tilman

    That would be nice, his lottery approach is much better than Morey's approach.

    Where do you think he got the idea?

    Morey was not allowed to tank.

    Hence no losing season for his entire tenure with Rockets.

    Only Pops can claim a more winning record during same time period.

    Hinkie isn’t only a tanker. He would be a better GM than Morey if he was allowed longevity. He’s raking in Silicon Valley money and wouldn’t want this job or probably any NBA job.
