    I've been going past 3 years, this year has been a significant improvement

    Also, lots of people be out of their seats walking around the arena. There's a kids section up top that is always full. Lower section for adults (bar/lounge) and the Rockets shop stays busy

    Not to mention concessions, restrooms etc

    People always walking around

    You must not have followed the stros before the golden era. Stadium was literally empty.

    I still have pics of lower bowl sections and everything behind me was empty

    They've actually won a championship within the past few years.
    The product Rockets put out for the past 3 years was borderline unwatchable.

    Attendance has always been crap in TC regardless of good or crappy team. Even worse if they suck or fringe playoff team.

    Did you see MMP after the Yankees series? Lots of empty seats in there.

    San Antonio struck gold with Wemby. They were able to raise ticket prices and sell out games all while tanking. The Rockets still need that star who will help sell tickets. That's why FVV may be gone before next season in addition to Green or someone else if an upgrade becomes available. As good he's been, people aren't buying tickets just to come see the 40 million dollar man play. They need to trade for a legit star and/or morph into one of the best teams of the league if they want to start selling out games. It should get better. It's hard to sell season tickets when you're letting fans know the team isn't yet ready to contend for a championship (phase 2). The exit interview with Jalen shall be interesting.

    I’ve gone to many games this season, and I go to many games every year…TC pretty much always looks empty, and the atmosphere is among the worst in the NBA

    it’s such a shame

    I don’t like baseball and don’t give a damn about the Astros, but I’ve gone to some games in the past, and that place used to be so empty u could pick any seat u want in the house and just go there and chill

    I agree, the atmosphere at Toyota center is so blah.

    Hey it’s the last 2 minutes of the 4th quarter let’s play “Welcome to the Jungle”!! Aka the same song they’ve been playing since T-Mac and Yao were hoopin in crunch time. No sort of thought or energy put into things it seems like.

    You could get $2 seats and go sit really good seats at the bottom. The rockets tickets are pretty overpriced for how terrible the team has been.

    In a dark place we find ourselves, and a little more knowledge lights our way. Patience you must have my young friend. Over the current attendance, do not despair. Smaller in number are we, but larger in mind. Once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny. Consume you, it will. Do not fear current crowd sizes. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering. Return they will. On many long journeys have I gone. And waited, too, for others to return from journeys of their own. Some return; some are broken; some come back so different only their names remain.

    Yup I remember doing that for the stros. I did go to a rockets game at the beginning of the season and sat on the floor seats right behind the goals for $100. Compared to your normal playoff team year that’s super cheap
