    11. The Whole 1993-1995 Houston Rockets Squad -- Yes, the Rockets had future legends Hakeem, Kenny Smith, Robert Horry and even perennial bad ass Vernon Maxwell. Unfortunately, they won their two titles during the non-Jordan years. It's like saying "Hey, I banged Jessica Simpson." The only difference is Mike banged the sexy Daisy Dukes version with the tig ol' bitties while the Rockets banged the 2009 version that kind of looked like Roseanne in Stein Mart mom jeans. M.J. has something to brag about. The Rockets? Not so much.


    :mad:, It seems like companies nowadays give jobs to any old schlaub who can enlighten the world with his lack of basketball knowledge or knowledge in general.

    It's actually more like the handsome guy banged all the trophy girls for a while but left to go the bathroom. Then the average looking guy got the trophy girls when the handsome guy left. Not the most handsome fellow, bit he was a PLAYA. The handsome guy came back, and the trophy girl had to choose between the two and chose the average looking guy.

    Then the average looking guy traded his best accessories, and we all know what happened after that

    Wait, so we don't have anything to brag about because we didn't play MJ.

    Does that mean MJ doesn't have anything to brag about since he didn't play MJ? I mean, he faced the same competition we did. He beat (and was beaten by) the same teams we did. Since he didn't play himself, his titles should be tainted as well.

    Maybe, because the handsome guy didn't measure up to the average looking player, if you know what I mean.



    Madonna choosing Scottie Pippen, sort of thing. ROTFL

    Not only did this not mention Clyde...but it also did not mention that Jordan was back in the league during the Rockets' 2nd title run. In fact, Jordan's team lost to the team the Rockets swept in the Finals.

    Convenient how these people forget this fact.

    It is what it is. Everyone tries hard to taint as many championships as they can....can't say I'm wrong either.

    How many people try to discredit Jordan's Bulls and say "the league was watered down". Not as many as the "Rockets won because Jordan wasn't around" class, but they are still there. No matter what people say, it's always something. Peyton Manning gets flack because "he beat the Bears, but REX GROSSMAN WAS THE QB!!!". What kind of society have we turned into? Winning is frowned upon unless you basically do it the way EVERYONE wants you to, or it's not good enough.

    I'm not really sure, media at large continues to take that angle. It's a mute arguement at this point, we Rockets fans know it's BS but media loves the easy answer, Jordan wasn't around so they just should have halt the NBA as we know it.

    So, can we say that Michael Jordan got cock-blocked by Penny Hardaway in 1995?
