Houston, Texas - Free-Agent Destination?
Posted 24 December 2012 - 02:34 AM
Biased as I may be, I keep believing that Houston should be one of the more desirable locations for ballers to set down roots. But since that hasn't exactly panned out, I was wondering what y'all thought Houston's best assets and biggest drawbacks are, both on the court and off, in attracting high-quality talent? Also, what could be done in order to help shore up our deficiencies and maximize our strengths?
Maybe we'll never have the draw of the L.A.'s glittering lights or the Knick's Madison Square Garden, but what would it take for big time Free Agents to give us more consideration as a legitimate destination?

Yeah, I'd agree with this. The key is getting players on the Team USA squad - that's where the friendships are developed and the players gain a better respect for each others' games. The seeds of The Decision were planted in 2008, and IIRC there was a period where Carmelo was trying to woo Paul to New York on the basis that they knew each other pretty well (there was some kind of speech at a wedding that caused a minor controversy or something, I think). We have someone on that team now, so hopefully that will raise the profile of the team quite a bit.
