    At this point I hope Les Alexander resigns Jeremy Lin and Kevin Mchale just to piss you guys off.

    tinman is a certified moron and huge net negative to this board. His trolling is disgusting and it's classless that people on this forum actually defend him. He goes out of his way to ruin the experience on this board for countless fans.

    On the other hand, you have "noone" who has made countless ignorant statements that are simply dumb. It's okay if you do not understand regional economics in this country, but perhaps then it's better if you just keep your mouth shut.

    yes but not because of the strip clubs, Harden is the one supporting the entire Houston strip club industry.

    Jeremy Lin has brought tourism and an Asian market to Houston, adding in professionals and Christians to the mix with businesses spewing making Harris county the new SF of the South.

    You're right! Jeremy Lin also parted the Red Sea and brought the holy grail too! Well, except when he got the holy grail, mo Williams slapped it out of his hands

    Why are you on this site if you hate houston so much? This is where the team plays. Also, Houston was rated the number one city in America for opportunities for minorities. Say what you will, but it's a great contributor to this country and that includes economic contributions. Yes, new York has more money, but you don't have to make 100k a year just to make it. It's a great place for regular folks.

    Didn't read the whole thread but got the general idea.

    Basically from what I've gathered, tinman can dish it - albeit anonymously on internet message boards talking trash about professional athletes. But he can't take it - for example a comment about Houston that a normal person would just brush off and not make a big deal about it. Itz the internetz mann.. you gotta be more coooool about it mann. A cool, self assured man would just brush it off because it doesn't matter. Even if what was said is true, you can just say 'Yea Houston is smaller, but I like it, so what?' And move on.. lol. But we all know you're not the cool type that'll have girls swooning at your feet, I'd imagine in real life you're more like the awkward, combative, obsessive geek. You seem like a fun guy at parties lol.
