    Requesting input from CF on creating the Greatest of All Time meta-era "Dream Team" Rockets roster on 2k for some Labor Day lazy afternoon gamin'.

    I just re-watched probably one of the greatest dunk contests on TV, the 2000 dunk contest with McGrady Carter and Francis. Anyways it made me miss some Stevie and TMAC.

    Ok top Rocket player at each position for a ridiculously fun 2k session:

    Steve Francis/ do they have Calvin?
    Harden/ Maxwell
    TMAC/ Mobley
    Moses Malone/Horry
    Dream/Yao


    Some of you level 12 2kers may need to help me out. Who's available to build a team with, etc. Who am I overlooking? Who'sfun on 2k?

    Just Stevie/Beard/TMAC/Dream on the court together already has me stoked.

    Thanks and Happy Labor Day, folks. (& Go Coogs!)

    If you're switching up positions with Moses at PF and Mobley at SF, why not go all out.

    If D'Antoni were playing this game, he's put Harden at PG, and add Drexler for SG.

    If you are playing against someone
    Francis
    Beard
    Drexler
    Yao
    Dream
    Bench:Brooks,Lawson,Lowry
    Mcgrady,Martin,Lee
    Parsons,Maxwell,Battier
    Landry,Moses,patterson,Scola
    Deke,Hayes
    Lawson off the dribble moves are easy to get to the basket.
    Who hasn't scored a hundred with Kmart at some point.
    Yao and dream on defense means nobody is gonna score inside.

    If you want fun:
    Bobby Jackson (rated 79) on MyTeam is an absolutely beast.

    90+ speeds plus great shooting and dribbling.

    You had me up until Hayes, Horry, Scola. Where's OT? And Malone in place of Sampson

    Murphy is a HOF, I shouldn't have to say anymore. And Drexler over Harden, Really?

    It's a matter of who you can find/download. Calvin isnt there. I couldn't find Barkley either within the Steve Francis roster I downloaded.

    Franchise/Beard/TMAC with Malone/Dream. That 5 right there is redonk.

    Vintage Stevie with vintage TMAC in particular is so damn fun. Those 2 and Beard get on some wicked sweet fast breaks together. And that signature Stevie dunk that the game absolutely nailed...UNGH. And Big Mo and Dream share the ball so well. It's pick how you want to dominate. Played against Showtime Lakers later today. Don't get to play much now but it was very satisfying.

    Oh and Yao is a total beast. Didn't realize until this build. 2nd unit is basically eating competition with him and Drexler.

    And if we're going two deep at each position, I'd have Sampson as a big long before Horry.

    I think I might agree with StupidMoniker about something! Wonders never cease.

    I don't know why the roster is 14 deep but without thinking too hard about it I'd say these are my top 14 Rockets of all time.
