New Houston Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta made headlines when he said that he would’ve been “scared” to invest $2.2 billion into an NFL franchise. Today on ESPN’s Outside the Lines, Fertitta spoke a bit more in depth about that comment – explaining that he would buy the Houston Texans in a heartbeat if he had the chance. With that being said, he did mention that the future of the NFL looks murkier than the NBA’s future. “The NFL could be different in the next 20 to 30 years,” Fertitta said. “The NBA is safe, it’s a world sport. I think we will expand to other countries.”
