    I’m not kidding when I say he should sell. Not sure anyone buys right now, but I could see selling the Rockets being a possibility.

    God I hope he sells. You can just see the writing on the wall on how this organization is going to go with Tillman at the helm.

    Larry Ellison of Oracle fame had been looking for a basketball team for a while -- I'm not sure he's still interested or not. He's got got more money than Ballmer. He actually offered to pay more for the Warriors than Lacob & company, but for whatever reason the previous Warriors owners decided not to sell to him.

    I remember him wanting to buy the Grizzlies and another team. The only problem with Ellison is that he always wanted to move any team he bought to California, I think.

    Tilman won't sell. Y'all are kidding yourself. His entire reason for buying the team was just as a status symbol. He had no care in the world for actually running it well.

    Only way he sells is if he's forced to, which, not holding my breath.

    Question: are we all broke for putting only 20% down to purchase our homes and financing the rest? Are small business owners the worst if they are in a similar position of having to layoff or furlough employees?

    Unprecedented times here - economy is going to get beat up big time, it's not going to be only TF's empire.

    If you put yourself in a position to not be able to service the debt, then yes.
