    Well next time, why don't you just stop and think about it before you start insulting a city to a site based in that same city. What did you think was going to happen? You really are ignorant.

    I didn't insult Houston. You want to me to call Houston something it isn't. Houston peaked, Houston never will have the same magnitude of New York or Los Angeles.

    Are you serious? Dude, just stop. Why don't you just leave the city out of it.

    A city that has "peaked" adding 10k jobs up north? 3 more skyscrapers in downtown? A place of heightened diversity (look it up). Doesn't sound like a peak to me. Or how about the massive amounts of construction going around in the city; yep, hasn't peaked already.

    This subsection of the forum is called GAME ACTION AND ROSTER MOVES. Do we have a guy on the roster named Houston? Did the Rockets ever have a guy named Houston? If I remember correctly, Houston never even played for the Rockets, although he did average 22 PPG for the Knicks once upon a time. I guess for a team based in a city with a real economy.

    F' Jeremy Lin. Why do we care about a scrub? He is very easily replaceable. He is not who we are building this team around. Trade him. Waive him... who cares as long as he is jot wearing a Rockets jersey.

    I don't know the PC term so I apologize in advance, but you are borderline r****ded. tinman shouldn't be picking on subnormal people, but by now you should realize you mostly talk nonsense and shouldn't post often.

    Houston metro population according to google 6.22 million and New York city greater area is 23.4 million. I don't know why this is even an argument.

    Man you wouldn't come off as so ignorant if you'd just leave your posts limited to observations on the differences between the cities. NY is certainly larger in population and finance, but that doesn't make it a better city or vice versa. Have you been to Beijing or Shanghai? Those cities have populations that rival or eclipse that of NY but larger doesn't make a city better. That has obviously more to do with culture and preference. Your posts assume NY due to its size and population is a better city. Even more ignorant is the assumption that the Houston market and Texas market even is struggling. If you knew much about the local and state economy you'd know that's the furthest thing from the truth. Saying otherwise just makes you look uneducated.

    Houston is a suburb it doesn't have a culture.

    You win Houston is the greatest city in the United States. Houston is the entertainment capital, finance capital, biggest city, and center of the universe.
