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.”
