    Hey Clutch Fans,

    Fellow Rockets lover and SLAM Magazine writer here. I wanted to pass on an article I wrote that went live today in defense of the Houston Rockets as the NBA's true underdog. Hope you enjoy it. (Hope this doesn't come off as self-promotion. Just happy to spread the word to SLAM Nation about the success of the Rockets.) Thanks.

    Thanks to you both. Being born and raised in Houston, it's a bonus any chance I get to talk about the Rockets. Amazing fans and an amazing organization.

    I wouldn't call Les an underrated owner, but I love the tone of the article otherwise. Nice!

    loved it. i've been saying this for years. this is what made me a rocket fan to begin with. take hakeem off the championship teams and we've got todays rockets. then and now, they play hard and play together.

    if only we could find that franchise player.

    good write up I would have probably also mentioned how they havent been on true network tv (abc,espn,tnt) in 2 seasons until tonight (a game that was picked up not on the original schedule) when all other teams over (and some under) .500 have been on national tv - in terms of how much disrespect/overlooking the media has/does to the team

    Put fans in the seats= nobody wants to air a game where half the lower bowl is empty.

    While I am slightly acquainted with Holly, who is a superb writer, I don't think she'd give out her digits. Haha. I'll tell her Rockets fans send some love though. Thanks.

    Just have her hold up a piece of paper that says I love Clutchfans on it, take a pic with your phone and post it. Do this and you’ll hit hero status pretty quick around here…
