    Who were the #1s The Rockets have had:
    These were the best players on the team. . . . Leaders?
    Does this seem about accurate?

    1. DREAM (1984-2001)
    Francis (2001-2005)
    Tmac (2005-2009)
    Kevin Martin (2009-2012)
    2. Harden (2012-Present)

    If the Harden Era ends . . .. what are we looking at?

    The T-mac era was so heart wrenching. Oh what could've been. If only Harden had the passion T-mac had to win.

    the T-Mac era produced by far the most painful to watch season...that 05-06 season is something I never want to experience again

    an extremely old team with injury prone players that couldn’t score and played at a snails pace

    T-Mac years is questionable, i'm pretty sure he didn't play half of those times

    Man.

    Rafer tear drop and then him dominating the machine.

    Van Wafer had a streak of really good games.

    Papanikolaou and his goofy way of playing.

    Scola 'Ice cream' scoops.

    Artest World Peace with his bulley ball......AB0 and Shane against the Lakers.


    So many memories about guys not being the best player.

    Funnier, more entertaining to be honest.

    HOFer, #2 draft pick, HOFer, dud, HOFer...

    idk about Stevie... Yao is HOFer too...
    swap Yao for Franchise and we've had a HOFer on the roster nearly every year...

    Wall and Wood have the potential... i think both will be better than Kevin Martin...lol

    Replace Kevin Martin with Luis Scola.

    Martin is never to be mentioned in any Rockets history.

    So the gritty hearts of the 22 straight wins squad are overlooked yet again? Chuck Wagon, Scola, Novak, Landry, Skip 2 My Lou or Raefer... Who else?

    the July 2012 through October 2012 JLin Era was very short-lived
