New Hous­ton Rock­ets owner

The Myanmar Times - - Sport -

Hous­ton — Til­man Fer­titta has been a fan of the Rock­ets since be­fore they moved to Hous­ton, and after a failed at­tempt to buy the team long ago he was pre­pared to do what­ever it took not to miss an­other chance.

To make his dream come true, the busi­ness­man had to shell out an NBA-record $2.2 bil­lion. And on Tues­day when he was in­tro­duced as the team’s new owner, he ad­mit­ted that it was worth ev­ery dime. The owner of the Landry’s res­tau­rant chain and Golden Nugget casino and ho­tels, he also has built sev­eral land­marks in the area in­clud­ing the Down­town Aquar­ium, the Kemah Board­walk and the Plea­sure Pier in Galve­ston. – AP
