    Morey will save Houston by bringing in an African American point guard.

    It's warmer. Better looking women. People are nicer. Davy Crocket died for her. But you're right, money is awesome and can buy anything and there is zero money in the state. We are broke.

    If I had a choice to live in New York or Texas it would be Texas. I wouldn't be thrilled about it because Texans are argumentative and your cops are nazis but I'm not a big Urban Sprawl guy. Facts are Facts your owner is from New York, the texas economy sucks for most people. The thread is a waste of time the authors claims aren't even true.

    One of the NY teams is owned by a Russian, that must mean that only Russia has a real economy.

    When Lin retires the NBA and shortly after the United States of America will fold.

    Beware.

    Have you been to New York City? Um, what? Speaking of people making a scene and being rude on the streets...

    You know, I am also quite sure that Houston (and Texas in general), as the oil capital of the world, is doing ok. You know, like considered best in the nation ok by many:

    Brilliant.

    I think you need to take a break from posting.

    It's bs most of the oil money was going to a few families in the arab countries. Outside of oil the economy of texas is very niche.

    If Jeremy Lin leaves who will keep Harden and Dwight on the roster. Those guys came to play with Jeremy and if Morey is such heartless to trade Lin those guys who came to play with Jeremy will be angry.

    We don't; I know people who have matched up against Jlin, and others who are family friends with the Lin family. He's fine, but you are really starting to tick people off.

    Nah dude, it smells bad.

    Um, what? This is one of my areas of study; just stop. You are wrong, sadly.

    One guys opinion but outside of oil texas is very niche with touristy stuff and financial services. Texas is Texas I don't have a problem with I just don't feel safe there.
