06:23 AM ET 07.01 | The Rockets' courtship of Chris Bosh has begun. Early Thursday, a Twitter post from Rockets general manager Daryl Morey said: "Just finished meeting with @chrisbosh - great player & person. He is about winning so I focused on how w/Houston he can win a championship."

Why would Bosh want to come to Houston? He wants to go wherever LeBron or Wade go. He wants to be Pippen to LeBron's Jordan. He wants to ride the coat tails of these other two guys.

the rockets have marched in talented guys for years now and still havent got a title, tmac was basically the same type of player bosh is now, bosh is a little better. and they didnt pull it off then. i dont see this happening, id say the bulls are the best place for him to go.

Someone told me Houston is like Canada. If that's really true he aint going there.

Your a moron...I live in Houston, and its nothing like Canada...Bosh would be the missing piece to a very good team. Plus, Texas does not have a state tax so Bosh would be able to keep more of his money.

Houston should dump Yao on Toronto. I am predicting this is going to be Yao's last season in the NBA. That guy is like the first boxer in Mike Tyson's punch-out fragile as hell.

you know what would be great, if all of these guys, especially the big three just resigned with their original teams. i mean think about it all of the losing that teams have done the last few years. all ofthe media attention they have gotten, even during days when great sports events happened. for them to just resign with their origianl teams would be fantastic. it would teach all those teams to focus on winning now not putting their fans through hell just to have a shot at getting someone like lbj. it would teach the media not to blow things out of proportion by focusing all of their attention on the free agency period of three guys.

Why getting all pissy. I was only asking for help in distingushing Canada and Houston... but given how y're coming off I'm apt to suspect what I heard was true. But I think the reason he won't go there is because Houston is not a big market for the NBA. Add the fact that Yao Ming has never been healthy and there's a chance he'll be the lone star for a long time. I do like K-Mart and the point guard but that's still not enough to get past the Lakers so what's the use? Once Yao Ming retires which will be sometime in November there'll be a hole in Houston's middle. He's so used to that in Toronto and it's nothing pretty.

Houston's future is shaky from a basketball perspective and not a big market city so sorry... it aint happening.

They are absolutely nothing alike.

Somebody lied to you, then! The man is from Texas, so he pretty much knows what to expect playing in H-Town!

Are we going to get one of these post ever time one of the top 3 meets with a team? Just because they meet, doesn't mean he is going there...

LMFAO, man Lost is great at saying BS statements.

Houston will rally behind their team who hasn't really had much to get excited about with mostly first round playoff exits the past few years. But to say Houston is not a big market? We have a few billion Chinese fans who know just as much about Chase Budinger as they do Lebron James that would disagree with you... And Yao's coming back!

Ummm Houston is a city and Canada is a country. That difference enough? Toronto is one of the top 5 markets in North America. Its not like we live in the arctic. Do some research before posting. Toronto is not a huge basketball market, thats where the problem lies. However the Raptors are hugely popular here, they have one of the best attendance averages in the league and we have big corporations here who love to sponsor athletes. Bosh should only leave if he think he can go somewhere and win a championship.

I guarantee Vince Carter lost money when he left Toronto. You think New Jersey or Orlando are bigger venues than Toronto? No way...
