    I'm jonesin' hard for some Rockets coverage and I know that Media Day usually takes place around the last week of September, but I didn't know if maybe Ike had affected things. Does anyone know for certain when Media Day is scheduled to take place?

    Member since '99 and haven't even reached 400 posts? You must really want to know when Media Day will be.

    It'll be Monday, September 29th.

    Technically, I'm a member since '96, but I digress. I had about 100 or so posts disappear from my post count as a result of the BBS crash that occurred several months ago, but yeah, I don't post too often.

    Anyway, thanks for the reply!

    According to Chron.com, the players are to report to their teams on Sept. 29th and to have training camp open on the 30th...

    So, I would expect Media Day to be on the 29th.

    be nice guys.

    Eric, media day is when all the players and coaches get together for press interviews and photo ops.

    Just a way to get stories out there at the beginning of the season and hype the Rockets.

    Clutch was at last year's (and I would guess will be at this years) so we get some scoop from him as well as all the other media outlets.

    I thought media day was today? I could have sworn I saw something about it today... Maybe I'm just going crazy. Anyways, I can't wait until the pictures come out from training camp.

    Go Rockets!!!!

    I think it's in Houston. Training Camp was held in Austin last year, not Media Day. Could be wrong though....
