    It's an indefinite course. Once we get the one that stops us from saying "next year," I'll be saying "next year" the very next year.

    Cleveland has a 4 more decades championship drought and never had a taste of being on the top of the basketball world.We just wait for 14 years(still counting) to get another title.Just keep waiting and fighting,good things would come your way.

    P.S.I hope next season we'd be able to end our 15 year championship drought and bring happiness and glory back to H-town. :D

    seriously, we are lucky to have two rings in the relatively recent past (15 years) and be one of the top NBA teams NOW that will be competing for a championship next year. better than alot of other teams out there

    this just proves how special championships are and they should be respected whether you saw that team play or not.

    If you have been watching the rockets for as long as I have, why even ask?

    A true fan will follow his team through the ups and downs and cheer them on

    with every opertunity. This organization has been great to the fans and has

    made significant progress. I am willing to be patient for as long as it takes.

    You really have a good attitude about game's win or lose. But I don't think it could be a excuse that we easily gave up hope earlier in the half of regular season.

    Around 50. After that, it tends to just snap.

    As a fan, you want to feel like the team is going in the "right" direction, making the right additions/subtractions, investing playing time in the right player or groups of players. Up until this year, I really felt the team was on this correct path, and I seriously believed this roster could have won the ring this year if not for McGrady's injury. For me, this season was to be the culmination of our "next years."

    Now, I'm feeling very uncertain about the direction of this team, and McGrady's injury/contract status and his return date is at the center of this uncertainty. Maybe Morey's off-season moves will make things clearer for me, but right now, this coming "next year" feels to be a period of transition more than a legitimate chance at a championship.

    Bulls 6 last one in 1998
    76ers 3 last one in 1983
    Spurs 4 last one in 2007, they have a impressive 100% when they get to the finals

    Pistons 3 2005
    Knicks 2 back in 1973
    Heat 1 2006
    Bullets 1 1978
    and some other teams one it once back in 70s.
    We had 2 championships and we are one of the 7 teams to win a championship in the last 2 decade.
