HoopsHype Tad Brown rumors
The China connection: Players looking to expand their personal brand in the world's largest country are well aware that the Rockets have had a corner on that market since the days of Yao Ming. "We're basically the de-facto national team of China," said Rockets CEO Tad Brown, who oversees that aspect of their operation. "People throughout Asia love our team. That started with Yao, and it continued with the great players that we've had. Every one of our games is broadcast in China and throughout Asia. We deliver a reach that is greater than any other team in the NBA, on a global scale." USA Today Sports
Houston Rockets CEO Tad Brown told FOX 26 Sports on Tuesday his organization is convinced that as Howard and his representation learn what the Rockets are all about, they will come to the conclusion that the Rockets are the right team for him to join. Brown arrived back in Houston Tuesday afternoon after taking part in the Rockets meeting with Howard and his agents on Sunday in Los Angeles. "It's important for (Howard) to gather all of the information and to really study it, because we feel the more information the better for us, because our case is the best," Brown said. FOX 26 Sports
Brown said owner Leslie Alexander's passion to sign the seven-time NBA All-Star is obvious. "Off the charts, off the charts," said Brown. "We're pulling out all of the stops. There's a reason we're spending as much time and doing as much as we are, because Dwight's worth it. " FOX 26 Sports
