    The only hope is that he follows the model of the Denver nuggets where the owner's son (Josh Kroenke) is the President of the Nuggets and Avalanche. It certainly looks bad if Cyber's info is correct but there is hope that the kid was jus given a title without the ability to do much damage. Hopefull the Fertitta's learned their lesson forcing the Franchise into the Westbrook deal. Who am I kidding? This guy is probably already ready to trade the Rocket's #1 overall pick for Herro and Robinson. Shut up and Listen!

    Yes, you kind of are. I literally said nothing about it. I've never even written an article about Patrick. In the future, could you at least wait for me to say something, anything, about the subject in question, before calling out me specifically about it (and no one else)? Thanks

    When was the last time a star free agent wanted to come here while in his prime? We've tried and failed in that philosophy. Melo played us for a pay raise while Les was here. LMA played us just to chill with Dream for a bit. Bosh played us for a payday. Do you know what attracts stars? Other stars and trading for or drafting them is the best way possible.

    I get the frustration with nepotism and change but at the end of the day the team belongs to Tilman and not the fans.

    Here's my positive spin:

    He would have been the de facto CEO anyway;
    Him eventually getting the title was always going to happen.

    So at least it's happening now while the team is a dumpster fire. That's better than it happening several years down the road when we might be better.

    Please tell me they interviewed real candidates. There's no way to know who was the best for the job if you didn't. If this is true, this mother****er better understand he doesn't deserve the position and understand he's going to have to work twice as hard as the next guy that did deserve the job in order to garner any level of respect.

    This is some Trump level stupidity hiring your own family as the best person for the job. ****! I've been willing to step back and watch, but this move is like making him GM, coach, everything guy because he can always invoke his daddy's name to get what he wants.

    UTTER BULLSHIT!!! Worst thing that's happened to the Rockets if true.

    Well I said the rebuild would take a little over 5 years.

    Now it'll take over 15 years.

    a close second for post of the decrepit season. This one wins the “I feel you” award of the season for raw emotion and guttural reaction.

    (You're talking about me and a few others maybe.) NOPE... this was too far. You don't hire family as the best candidate for the job. Trump did this and it turned our country into a dumpster fire. Do not want. **** Tilman and this decision. He needs to shut up and listen to the fans. You DO NOT hire family to do a real job.

    C'mon, guys, let's look at the season's silver lining...

    We finally got rid of that stat-padding ballhog Harden and his unwatchable game! The future is bright!
