The Parallel: Alexander & Fertitta's Ownership

As I was watching the Rockets put the finishing touches on their latest win, I thought to myself, "Tilman (Fertitta) could bring the Rockets a title in his first season as owner." That would be a pretty cool story. Then I asked myself, "Wait, didn't Leslie (Alexander) win his first title in his first season as the Rockets owner?" (This is how I really talk to myself)

That led me down a rabbit hole deeper than the JFK conspiracy. There's a parallel between the history of the Rockets the season before Alexander purchased the Rockets (1992-93), the season of his purchase and the following season in which the Rockets repeated -&- the season before Fertitta's purchase (2016-17), the current season and the expectations and possiblities of the season to follow.

Here's The Magic Bullet Theory that proves we're in the midst of the Rockets winning an NBA Championship (again).....and then following up with a repeat, next season, with LeBron James.


"After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill—the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill—you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes. Remember: all I'm offering is the truth."
