Well, they should bring in a pretty good price. Certainly better than what he paid for them.

I figure a fair few teams around sports will go up for sale, What with the insane price idiot boy paid for the Clippers and the insane price wanted for the Marlins. Time to cash in.

Lol....valued at 1.65bil? Yeah...I'd sell too.

I was thinking that half that would be a good price.

Lots of projection built into that estimate it's a volatile investment at anywhere near that price.

I was thinking the same thing.

CP3 is a curse apparently, glad he didn't go to the spurs.

I could see a Chinese conglomerate or billionaire buying it. The rockets are pretty big in China.

Great post.

Definitely a lot of wild big money in China although such a high-profile purchase might not be as easy to pull off.
