HOUSTON, PART IV: ET TU, ROCKETS?
Published October 23, 1995
In London for the McDonald's Championships, NBA Commissioner David Stern said he understands the "dilemma" facing the Rockets and the city, but he stated the Rockets will need a new arena. Stern: "The Summit is fine for the short-term. But within the next year, there are going to have to be plans for a new arena." Rockets Owner Les Alexander's Summit lease lasts until 2003. Stern -- who said "I refuse to launch that war from London" when asked if Alexander would be within his rights to move to another city -- said he was confident the issue would be worked out "at the local level" (Eddie Sefko, HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 10/23).
