    The rockets handled themselves like the coach would have expected.

    You can't argue with a sweep.

    A sweep is just a sweep and the other team didn't stand a chance!

    Pippen was off and so was Jordan when magic beat bulls.

    Shaq would bring down the house with them dunks!

    I am not anyone's alternate account. I just wanted to share this because I strongly believe we have to fight whatever alt-history NBA media has been peddling to the current generation of NBA fans.

    One of my most-hated articles about us was when Bill Simmons put our Rockets as the Number One Footnote title team.

    When other sports fans know I'm a Rockets fan, the younger ones always say "it's because Jordan was out" and all the other bs. The best retort was to always say "google the (head-to-head) records".

    I just found it refreshing coming straight from Jordan to say what is simply THE retort to all the BS about The Rockets not deserving to win. Not that we need it, but THEY need it.

    We did it back-to-back, and we won the second title as a 6th seed. I don't know why we never got a documentary or at least a 30-for-30.

    Probably true, the 'The Last Dance' crew had footage of a whole year plus older materials.

    His Airness' small gambling problem almost filled out one episode alone.

    There's def something one can do.

    True, but he would have killed Horace Grant and them Magic if he either came back earlier from the White Sox/Barons or never left..... They would have missed Horace deeper in the Playoffs.... Rodman arrived the next year.

    Has to get back his bball conditon and an offseason workout to transform him back into that elite player wearing 23.

    Now not sure about championships.....

    But those who don’t love Clutch City
    Are exactly the same
    Trent Reznor probably wrote a song about them

    It’s impossible for 99ers to be duplicated
    Our DNA is too complex for normal humanoids to replicate

    Yeah! Betting on NBA games should be reserved for NBA refs only.

    Thanks for the kind words..I think most of us here just want the best for the Rockets and love the team, with the exception of a few bad apples (well more than a few but we outnumber them :D)

    Now the art is to be a good fan and a fair human being to everyone else.

    One's perpective as is a season is relative not absolute.

    Divisive tactics on both sides shouldn't be the standard.
