LES, YOUR ROCKETS ARE NBA CHAMPS, WHERE DO YOU GO NOW?

Rockets owner Les Alexander recently financed a feasibility study to "determine the viability" of a new 20,000-seat arena with 50 luxury boxes, according to the HOUSTON CHRONICLE. John Williams reports that Alexander "has expressed interest" in having at least 50 suites, compared with the 20 "semi-private" suites the team currently has at the 20-year-old Summit. While Alexander would not comment on the possibility of a new arena, Rockets Minority Owner Gary Bradley "frequently remarks that he would not be surprised to see the Rockets move to a city willing to pay big bucks for a championship team with the world's best player." Summit officials are also in the mix. Manager Kenneth Schnitzer: "We can do what Alexander wants for one-third of the cost" (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 6/14).
