Houston Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta has had quite the offseason so far with all the rumblings that've stirred through H-Town lately. That hasn't stopped the 63-year-old owner from getting some head-scratching, A-list reviews on his latest book “Shut Up and Listen!: Hard Business Truths that Will Help You Succeed,” which released back in September.

While the self-motivation, how-to book seems to be doing well on Amazon given the nearly five-star reviews that he's received from over 1,000 customers, two particular reviews from James Harden and Tom Brady come off a bit generic given their wording.


Harden's words come off a little fabricated right off the bat with words such as “swag,” while the idea of Brady sitting down and reading a lengthy novel of successful business practices seems a little far-fetched to say the least.

If anything, Fertitta's focus at the moment should be on the impending future of his Rockets franchise. There've been a number of reports stating both Russell Westbrook and Harden's disappointment with the handling of the organization, and both stars had reached a level of uncertainty with their respective futures with the Rockets. It appears now, however, that both stars have made it known that they remain committed to the Rockets for the time being.

After being eliminated from the playoffs at the hands of the Los Angeles Lakers, many spectators pondered about the direction the Rockets would take next. It wasn't too long afterwards before both former head coach Mike D'Antoni and former GM Daryl Morey decided to part ways with Houston, which signaled that the organization could be shifting its culture next season.
