The Houston Rockets are legitimate contenders in the Western Conference. The Houston Texans have the No.1 overall pick in the NFL Draft and desperately need a franchise QB. Is there one available? And a quick word on the Southland Conference tournament in Katy, which I'll be covering this week.
(We might get into some Astros talk if we have time. Couple of interesting notes there.)
Welcome to Day 2 of NBA Free Agency, when we will learn how the lack of state income taxes could have an impact on Carmelo Anthony's future.
A day after being feted by the Chicago Bulls, Anthony will visit the Dallas Mavericks and Houston Rockets today. If he signs with either team, he will not have to pay any state income taxes because Texas does not levy them.
New York? Oh yeah.Not only is there a state ioncome tax, but there is a city income tax for residents of the five boroughs. California? Yup. And not only is there a state income tax, there is a millionaire's tax that makes the NBA's luxury taxes look tame by comparison.
You can bet your bottom dollar that both the Rockets and Mavs will make sure this is made known to Anthony, and you can bet your other bottom dollar that the Mavs will point out the fact that they can give Anthony a max salary, whereas the Rockets and Bulls cannot.
Plenty more on the Melo situation along with lots of other news from the first day of NBA free agency in this interview with The Fan Morning Show on WHFS in Tampa, Florida.
Fresh off Game 1 of the Blazers-Rockets series, how far can Houston really take this thing? Also, the football media has waned on Teddy Bridgewater in startling fashion. All of a sudden, everything that's been said about him as a promising NFL prospect is out the window. Hard to make sense of it. But let's discuss.
Carl Tedesco was introduced to ULTRA marathons in 2007. As he continued his engineering career with a Masters in Mechanical Engineering from San Diego State University and working as a professor at San Diego State University, one of his students helped to inspire him to run more. Since then he has run numerous ULTRA marathons and completed five 100 mile races, San Diego 100 miles twice, Javalina Jundred, Chimera 100M, and Zion 100M. He continues to inspire students at San Diego State University to pursue careers in engineering as an advisor for the Rocket Club.
MEMPHIS TN (IFS) -- Rockets Away Dream Babies. Coming back from business trips in Wilmington, Nort Carolina and several seminars in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, I find that the world has changed just over several weeks. It has changed so much, my ex is not even talking to me. No mad either. The President is to meets with leaders from Central America about their kids; The Rocket red glares are still flying across the deserts of Israel, and President Putin continues to supply rockets that have taken the lives of over 298 people that has nothing to do with him or his imperialistic actions.
We will be talking sports and having fun doing it. We will be joined by 76ers G Tony Wroten, who will discuss his upcoming basketball camp, season and more. Also, Rockets G Scotty Hopson, who will discuss his summer league play and the upcoming season. Former University of Cincinnatti star and NBA free agent Sean Kilpatrick will join us to discuss his bif time summer league performance and more. Talking Ray Rice and Stephen A. Smith fallout, MLB trading deadline, NFL tradining camps and so much more. Listen @ Blogtalkradio.com/pgant or call 646-727-3070
