Leslie Alexander Rumors
After watching his franchise make it to the Western Conference Finals for the first time since 1997, Rockets owner Leslie Alexander said he could add another big-time player to his roster if the opportunity presents itself. “Yes, but I don’t think the odds are as good as they were in the previous years,” Alexander said in an interview with FOX 26 Sports. “If you want to win big, you have to take big risk. I’ve always been willing to take the big risk to win big.” Alexander said it would not surprise him if he makes a significant move this offseason. “There’s always a chance,” Alexander said. “Every single year, there’s always been a chance.
Houston Rockets owner Leslie Alexander said his team has a good chance to beat the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference finals, which starts Tuesday in Oakland. “They had the most wins in the league,” Alexander said after Sunday’s series-clinching victory over the Los Angeles Clippers. “A great shooting team, but we have a competitive fire and a competitive spirit. We have two superstars [Dwight Howard and James Harden]. We play really good defense. We hit the boards. We got a good chance.”
Mark Berman: Leslie Alexander: “Wonderful. When you’re down 3-1 u think you’re not going to come back against a really good Clippers team and we did. This team has great competitive fire. They really want to win. We have 2 great superstars. It’s obviously great.”
Houston Rockets owner Leslie Alexander is putting his Manhattan penthouse on the market for $49.75 million, just two years after he bought it for $42 million, according to listing agent Melanie Lazenby of Douglas Elliman Real Estate. The apartment is located at 18 Gramercy Park, a prewar building recently converted to condos by Zeckendorf Development and Global Holdings. Mr. Alexander bought the apartment from the developers, going into contract in 2012 and closing in 2013, according to Ms. Lazenby, who sold Mr. Alexander the property. She is co-listing the apartment with Dina Lewis.
