    The first NBA/Rockets game I ever attended was that season. We lost (as I recall), but I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of actually being at a game.

    Twas a tough, tough year (hard to get over losing Moses), but paved the way for a much brighter future.

    If you lived through that, and the 90s glory years, everything else should be gravy. Right? right?

    Some of us leaned rather heavily on Phi Slama Jama to carry us through those couple of lean years... :)
