    on the one hand they made the playoffs a few years ago. On the other hand they’ve only made it twice in the last 12 years.

    so who knows...

    Rich people like to own things to brag to other rich people that they own those things. Owning a sports team is a cool thing a rich person does. It's why he's plastered his name and face everywhere possible on the team. It's just a brag and swag move for him. Nothing more than that.

    It contributed to us losing a championship, so it was a pretty big problem.

    He got robbed of the chance to own the Rockets when Les beat him to it decades ago, he wasn't going to let his chance slip again no matter the cost.

    We “bought” a second round pick for $4.6 MM. you can only spend $6 MM in each NBA season. We are spending money from the 2019-20 season to cover Ariza’s contract. We can’t send that money in the actual Ariza trade because that can only be completed in the 2020-21 season (after the draft).

    Whoever is the 16th pick will be followed by Rockets fans for years and always think, he could have been our pick.
