About the Owner

Leslie Alexander assumed ownership of the Houston Rockets on July 30, 1993, and – over the last 19 years – has devoted his efforts to making his teams champions both on the basketball court and in the community. Alexander’s dedication to winning has resulted in two NBA championships with the Rockets and four WNBA titles during his 10-year (1997-2006) operation of the Houston Comets, giving Houston its first major professional sports championships. Only three other NBA teams have posted more winning seasons than the Rockets (15) during Alexander’s tenure as owner. Additionally, Houston’s winning percentage (.557, 841-669) is the seventh best in the league over that same 19-season time frame. Off the court, the Rockets franchise has set the standard for community involvement.
