Rockets CEO Tad Brown made a prediction about the upcoming season, which unlike other teams' predictions, has nothing to do with winning championships, or even games.
Tad Brown has predicted that the Toyota Center, which is where the Rockets play their home games, will be sold out for every single home game this season. This is very bold considering how the Rockets have played since they've called the Toyota Center home.
“We’re further ahead in our sales process at this time than we ever have been,” Brown said. “The season-ticket base is up 34 percent. We are close to being sold out of season tickets. And we are pretty confident with the excitement that this team has already created in the market that we’ll be sold out of every game.”
The buzz surrounding the Rockets is the recent addition of center Dwight Howard. According to CBS Sports head coach Kevin McHale has decided to stick with Houston's uptempo style with the addition of Dwight Howard. This may play exactly how Brown wants it to in that the team will score a lot of points, making them exciting to watch.
Chron.com reports that the Rockets have only sold out every home game in four seasons in the teams history, and haven't done it once since they made their move into the Toyota Center.
