Is Leslie Alexander sending OKC a check. Without Harden what would the Rockets be worth?

Just think....close to 15 years ago to the day, the Celtics were sold for a measly $360 million.

saw the name and wondered the relation to the UFC Fertitta's.  Apparently they are 3rd cousins.

Not sure how a guy whose company is worth about 2.7 billion comes up with the cash to buy a team for 2.2 billion, but more power to him.

Chris Paul has been on the team for both the highest and second highest franchise sales now.
