    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.

    “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

    “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.”

    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.
