    When the universe was formed. Or during the Moses Malone era (it's hard to remember which).

    Actually, my semi-serious following of the Rockets started in the late 70s/early 80s. My first game attended was in the 82-83 season (14-68), and I really started following them fervently from that point on (first games in person tend to do that to you, I think, regardless of team record). Before that I had followed them sort of sporadically.

    Fortunately, the season that I attended my first Rockets game (the 82-83, 14-68 season), the Houston Cougars were on the rise with kids like Drexler and Olajuwon, so there was alternate basketball entertainment to fill the win column. :)

    Yao's rookie season, I was in H town for the night on business. We decided to grab a couple of nosebleed seats at the Summit. It was then that I saw Yao for the first time and I immediately knew that although he had a lot of work in front of him that he'd be something special. Been watching every game since then.

    78-79 season. Those were the years and the nba as a whole was a struggling unit.
