    150 USD isn't a lot. Consider the millions you can make in the NBA. You have to spend money to make money.

    Don't think they are trying to make any money. Just a way to weed out guys who clear have no hope or would do it as a joke. The fee discourages most of the non-serious candidates from wasting everyone's time.

    Where's paulftsk? Gotta show them that "quick release" free throw, would floor all of the scouts there. Morey might sign him on the spot AND give him a player option

    If someone can sponsor the Jontro for this tryout... I promise I'll pay you back once I make the Rockets' roster.
