Mario Elie's heart will always be with the Rockets. Therefore, he wants to see Dwight Howard in Houston.

"With James Harden, that's a great building block," Elie said on Thursday. Then, he turned to the camera.

"Hopefully, Dwight Howard, you've got to come down to Texas, man," Elie said. "No state taxes, ain't no pressure down here. You don't have to worry about LA, Hollywood, or Brooklyn. Texas is great. The fans are terrific down here. We support. We're not like the Miami fans leaving when the game's not even over. We stay until the end here in Houston. Come on down to Texas, Dwight."

Elie was a member of both Rockets championship teams in 1994 and 1995. He also played with the 76ers, Warriors, Blazers, Spurs, and Suns in his 11-year NBA career.
