    Superior to the Rockets' accomplishments, sure. But that doesn't necessarily mean they are a better franchise, let alone "far" better. Championships always involve a dose of luck that is out of the control of the organization. Again, look no further than 2018 for Houston. The best team in basketball did not win it that year.

    Imagine being a kings fan and coming on here seeing people complaining about a guy who took us to the wcfs twice and to the playoffs period every year he's been here im sure theyd take him since we seem to not like him. playoff Harden indeed.

    The Astros have had the baseball equivalent of a 60 win season 3 straight years, and could do it again this season. They have been better, it isn't really debatable.

    And thanks to the buffoon the Rockets currently have writing the checks, I can say with absolute confidence they are the better franchise right now. The Rockets "were" an elite organization, but with our GM neutered the Rockets are basically one man holding the franchise on his back like Atlas. Harden is the Rockets right now.

    They LOST 4 GAMES AT HOME IN A WS, WHILE WINNING 3 GAMES ON THE ROAD. IT WAS A MAJOR CHOKE.

    AND they won 61 games at home in the regular season. MAJOR CHOKE JOB.

    Damn, seems like biggest choke in history is owned by Texans. At least Rockets have not been on that side.

    Rockets went from #1 in the city to #3 in a matter of a couple years. They still the most consistent franchise in the city. People need to respect them

    But they cheated.

    James Harden plays like someone turned a cheat code on, but he isn't cheating to do it

    As a city we own it, the franchise that owns it are the Titans. Damn chokers.

    Cheating happens everywhere. I love Harden, but some of the moves he make isn't consider a foul at the local YMCA. There is a baseball team up north oouplr hours up north that don't cheat, I don't think.

    Because the fouls are considered fouls in the NBA rule book clown.

    Yes a technicality basically. Something that fans who watch a sport for entertainment value might frown upon.

    Astros easily have the most stacked roster over the three franchises with the best management.

    Their cheating allegations only effect their home games. Yet, in their 3 year run, they have the best road record in the majors which shows they still would be competing for rings even without the sign stealing.

    Also, I'm pretty sure most of the top contenders have done some form of cheating the past few years.
