Good times, good times.
why would that put his job in jeopardy what
If they fired him he would have a job the next day somewhere else.
lot of chinese money goes to the rockets
he should just quit
This is the same guy who thought giving Dana Holgorsen 4 mil a year would save Houston Cougars football
The Rockets don't deserve him.
wasn’t it 6 mil? lol
South Park literally just did an episode about American companies not making any choices without first getting China’s approval. Didn’t think it would spread to the NBA.
Those sources are Yao and Ming.
Hong Kong #1
Didn’t South Park just do a whole episode on this like on Wednesday?
Id be thrilled if the rockets stopped whoring out for chinese money. Our chinese “spririt” jerseys or whatever they call them are the dumbest crap ever
Sports are just another way for already wealthy people to make money. Lol at people thinking it’s about the actual games and wins/loses.
the rockets are like the one team where i think we can trust the ringer's sources
So easy to say.
Taking a stand and not quitting is harder but you would not know about any of this.
I'm sure John Gonzalez has great sources surrounding Tilman because Daryl likes to talk to Bill Simmons.
Only a dipshit asshole like Tillman could come in and immediately fuck up a blessing like having morey run your business for you.
lol "i have had the chance to consider other perspectives"
Fuck. the fact he sent out an apology tweet is aggravating me.
God that is some weak shit from the NBA.
NBA trying to expand business ties with China while they exterminate the Uighurs is something
Fuck the NBA and fuck China
and it will never change as the opinions of billionaires who do nothing but park money are what they cater to in every pro sport
Terrible look for the NBA
What I need right now is for Russ to tweet out support for Hong Kong.
Another case of the reaction is going to make it worse than if they would have left it alone.
This is obviously more of a "NBA bowing down to foreign money/interests" story, but in a more micro perspective, this was a great long-form article from ESPN in June about the Rockets org being a total shit show:
what a bunch of sorry assholes
i wish i was an NBA fan, just so i could boycott them
Please give Chef Goldblum some credit. He basically wrote the episode on the cast a few weeks ago.
i think i have no choice but to boycott the charlotte hornets over this
I would like to say I am boycotting all Joes Crab Shack and Bubba Gump restaurants until Fertitta changes his stance.
“Rockets ownership” is legit Fertitta talking to his mid 20s kids who have never had a real job. Morey also has to report to these dipshit kids
Wouldn’t be stunned if he was trying to get fired. No one I know who has worked for and/or had any interactions with Fertitta has anything nice to say about him
His book tour has been hilarious. It’s obvious he just bought a bunch of the books himself to get on the NYT bestseller list. No one is buying something called shut up and listen
Read the quotes in this from morey and tell me he isn’t hating his life
“He’s smart, knows basketball, great mind,” Morey said. “Really, really, really surprising for someone his age. I don’t even understand it. I don’t understand how he is so level-headed. He seems 35 when I work with him. It’s crazy.
“It’s really helpful he knows basketball. He’s a total hoop head. Obviously Tilman is the final call on everything. But he has 60,000 employees. He’s running a lot of stuff. It’s a learning process for us all to know what things Tilman wants to know and what he does not. Patrick is a huge advocate there that helps a lot.”
They had Lebron and a few other NBA players on the airplane to China.
Edit add on:
Lebron, Harden and Barton
I don’t blame the players for taking endorsements or the owners for wanting to have their games broadcast in every country
Morey is smart he knew what he was doing. No chance he wants to work for Fertitta
He is one of the worst people I've ever seen. His show he had on CNBC was just him gleefully ripping off small businesses. It was insane to watch how big of an asshole he came off on his own vanity project show.
glad people in other parts of the country are beginning to learn what houstonians have known for a long time.
"totalitarians buy sneakers too" is the most perfect line i have ever read
