    Yao Ming
    Hakeem Olajuwon
    Clyde Drexler
    James Harden
    Chris Paul

    Nothing against McGrady, just prefer a point guard like Paul in a lineup with the other four.

    Love me some TMac but he had the skinniest chicken legs.

    On the one hand, we haven't had a doomed franchise like the Grizzlies or Hornets to follow, but on the other hand, you can see why Clutchfans has developed its syndromes around being good but getting no respect.

    Most years in the past few decades we've been up there with the top teams, but injuries or circumstances just never go in our favor.

    Hence, a neurotic fanbase that tries to put blame everywhere and can never appreciate anything.

    I personally feel like Olajuwon, Drexler, and Harden are better than Chuck Hayes, Luther Head, and Rafer Alston.

    I think when you make a fantasy dream team cobbled together from different eras, one of the rules is that your pretend team doesn't get injured. Let the guy have Tracy (and Yao) if he wants.

    It took me a second before I was like "Wait, there are two centers there." And then it took only a couple more seconds to think, "Oh, yeah, that would be no problem for those two."

    I mean, I think if you told Dream, "Hey, you're playing power forward. Game starts in 15 minutes," he'd say sure, and then go out, and play it like he'd done it all his life. Oh, by the way, they were playing the Jazz and power forward Dream made a mockery of Karl Malone.

    Then again, if you said, "Yao, we're going to Ralph Sampson you to the 4. Also, we're in 2019, so go work on your threes," he'd say sure, and quickly become the tallest stretch 4 in history.

    I remember when Yao came over that he wanted to pick and pop more even at the 3 point line, but Carroll Dawson and the common thinking was to station him in the post. Yao was 11 for 32 for 3 for 34 games in his final year (2001-2002) on China.

    I love Yao, but he is massively overrated on this board.
    My starting 5:
    Paul, Harden, Mcgrady, Barkley, Hakeem

    Only reason I'm choosing T-Mac over Clyde is because they both offer what I want except T-Mac is a much more reliable 3-point shooter than Drex. Considering I have Hakeem and Barkley-- I need that from my SF- Drex would be better off the bench with Francis and Yao

    1985 cut off is BS.

    Leaving Moses off any all time Rockets team is just wrong.

    Starting 5:

    Dream
    Beard
    Chairman of the Boards
    Glide
    CP3

    Bench:

    Ralph
    Yao
    Big E
    Pocket Rocket
    T-Mac*

    *Rather have Tru Warier

    No way. Rockets Barkley was a fat old idiot. Yao was way better than Rockets Barkley. You owe the man an apology for saying this.
