Every year the Rockets make a move (in general). Following 95 there were no changes...they were defending champs. It became evident we needed help to beat the sonics..Enter Barkley. The 97 Rockets were damn good and minus Stockton...seriously might have beaten Jordan. 98 season they were coming back with a good squad, but Glide decided to pack it in. Enter Pippen. A mistake, in retrospect, but the acquisition of a 6-time champion/top 50 player can not be faulted. The foolowing season we add Stevie and Shandon. Now Mo. CD and Les are always working, and big move is made every year (basically) I see no other organization with the constant dedication to improving the caliber of players on the team,.
