If the Rockets get LeBron, does he automatically become the Greatest Rocket ever?

    He’s the greatest player to ever be a rocket but he’s not the greatest rocket. Pippen is one of the ten best players to be a rocket but he’s not even close to being a top ten rocket

    no...hell no

    Hakeem brought us our 1st 2 championships

    Bron wouldn’t be the greatest Laker either...longevity with the franchise matters

    Pretty much this.

    I think even if he won 3 rings it would still have this mercenary feeling for me. I'd appreciate it but I'd think of guys like Harden and Yao and Hakeem as ROCKETS. Not that they'd be better players but just that when I think of those players I'd think of them as Rockets. As in it will be the colors they are immortalized in. Lebron will always be a Cavalier to me, even through the Miami years, I think his legacy is there.

    Sort of like how Shaq won a championship in Miami but he'll always be thought of as a Laker or even Magic first I think.

    Just imagine Dream working with LeBron on post moves at the Rockets practice facility :eek:

    LeBron will probably fly straight there after the Cavs finish getting swept later this week:eek:

    No. LeBron would arguably be the best talent to join the Rockets via free agency, but he will ultimately become the greatest mercenary in NBA history. Hakeem is the greatest Rocket, period. Harden is moving up the list but we need to give him more time.

    And yes I realize Harden was traded as well but he was not anywhere close to his prime when he was traded after that OKC season.

    he would be the greatest player to ever wear a rockets uniform.

    wouldn't necessarily have the greatest rockets tenure though.
