  1. It is certainly a hinderance which is why you were able to name very few players. The people who have thrived and are below average height for the sport are the exception and thrive as a result of extreme levels of talent. The pool of potential NBA players that are under 6'0 is WAY larger than the pool that are over 6'5 but the number of players historically that are over 6'5 compared to under 6'0 is a clear indication that height gives you a huge leg up. Honestly this point isn't even really debatable in basketball and is only debatable in certain positions in the other of the big 3 sports.
  2. Also regarding electric delivery, those smaller one-off companies are not providing your electricity. Centerpoint delivers your energy and maintains the infrastructure to do so. The other companies just market your electricity.
  3. Local Foods basically died before the pandemic hit. Their hours never made any sense to me and I thought it was going to be the death of them when they first opened. Finn Hall has had issues with crap food. Downtown is definitely still slower than it should be by a lot but most of the places that you mentioned have/has more issues that the pandemic just made more obvious.
  4. Is this something that is unique to Houston? I always feel like any buildings that we have with lighter colored stone turn black and I don't see it in other cities.
  5. Gotcha - just not your speed. I think the other McIntyre's does pretty well so we will see how this one does.
  6. What signs point to this being a terrible, terrible bar?
  7. Just to clarify, hindesky is saying no they have not fixed it and there has been no murmur of funds moving anywhere near such a project. It’s craze.
  8. I would be all for replacing pretty much every grocery store in central Houston with a store that has residential on top like HEB Buffalo Heights or Whole Foods in Midtown.
  9. If they were sprinkling this in various neighborhoods it wouldn't have such a high likelihood of turning into a slum.
  10. That garage covers multiple blocks and is multilevel, I think that a project to redo that would be huge and we would have heard about it.
  11. Says "Guest House Only" - Looking at photos, that seems like a newer addition in the back.
