    Owners need to stay out of the media. It's never a good sign.

    Don't force it Tilman, just focus on keepin your mouth shut and let the people u hire do their job.

    Idk y some folks cant just let the result speak for itself, all this talk puts him on the spot to actually having to back it up.
    gonna b a sad day when he forces stone to sign someone that does not fit the timeline for us.

    All it takes is one awful contract to screw us for the next 5 years.

    "I think you’re going to see improvement this year and I think our big move is after this coming year. We expect to win more ballgames this coming season, and we expect to make a big move (the) next year.

    It is difficult. But basketball operations has a plan and there’s a process, and you have to be disciplined not to meddle with this process, and give this plan an opportunity to take."

    Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta tells final hours of Paul, Westbrook deal

    "I was in Europe, and so I was six or seven hours ahead of them. So I’m talking at 2, 3, 4 in the morning. And we just decided to do it. They ran different statistics by me.

    My basketball ops [operations] got maybe a little weak at the end, and I just said, ‘We’re doing this. We are going to make the change. We’re going to go after it and roll the dice. We’re going to find that 5 percent.’

    The one thing I believe you do in business, and you do in basketball, is you never sit still. You always keep it exciting. Not only is it exciting that we’re a better team, but it’s exciting for the fans. I owe it to them to give them the best opportunity to win a championship every year."

    Just flat out embarrassing to have this idiot as a professional sports franchise owner

    I could see Donavon Mitchell getting burnt out in Utah. I’d love nothing more than to stick it to Utah by getting their best player and pairing him with Jalen Green and Jabari Smith and creating a dynasty

    Makes sense. I think around that timeline you'll have a good stockpile of young role players that could be cobbled together for a disgruntled star.

    Not to be a downer, but I'm disappointed in DuBose's "reporting" effort here. He essentially just took a Brian T. Smith article from April 16, regurgitated the quotes that are three weeks old, added in basic information we all know and called it "news." There's nothing really new about this—it was promising news when the first piece came out in April, and nothing's changed since then.
