    I could understand a little bit of frustration for the other guys in this poll, but I'm not sure how Fertitta doesn't deserve the bulk of that frustration. If someone casts a vote for someone other than Tilman, that vote would require some explanation.

    Tillman. Franchise was a 65 wining team on the cusp of going to the finals three years later the coach is gone, GM is gone, the second best player in the franchises history is all but gone and will probably be a team that will miss the playoffs this coming season

    Lack of common decency and a straight face liar who puts the bottom line above everything

    Unwilling to spend to upgrade the roster

    Meddling know it when in reality he has no clue


    Any human being with any self respect will choose to get as far as possible from this conman

    100% agree with this post. "Conman" Fertitta should be his new name

    17-18: team wins 65 games and makes it to game 7 of the WCF

    What’s the main objective after that? To avoid the LT by any means necessary. What does that do? It affects who u go after in trades. It affects moves made on the margins to try and improve the team.

    Morey and MDA both hate working under Tilman...they leave

    Harden gets fed up and wants out, but talk is that the organization wants to show him he has a championship future here and try and salvage the relationship. What gets reported by the Athletic during this time period? That Tilman is hellbent on reducing payroll and avoiding the LT for the foreseeable future which is just insane. An organization like Milwaukee is going all-in to keep their superstar and try to build a championship team around him. Meanwhile, Tilman’s preoccupied with possible tax bills.

    the worst is when they try to act like money is no object when in press conferences or speaking publicly...just stop...

    #Tilman. And it isn't even close. There are symptoms but Tilman is the ROOT CAUSE of them all.

    All I know is, I would pay good money to the single individual who has said they aren’t angry, so they can be my life coach and teach me how to get to their level of serenity.

    Les Brought 2 titles to the city in a moment where Dream was about to get ousted from the franchise by management.

    Tillman

    He chose the wrong time to listen to his star player, who at the time was under contract for 3 more years, over one of the best front offices in sports. Everything goes back to the Westbrook deal.

    Anyone who didn't vote for Fertita is on the Rockets payroll.

    There is only a single acceptable answer here and it isn't even up for debate.

    Les sold the team to a guy who paid him in IOU's because he wanted to squeeze a couple million bucks out of the deal.
