Houston Rockets Season
2016-17 is the year that Rockets fans are expecting a return to greatness, much like the mid-90s, when they won two consecutive NBA Championships thanks to the talents of Clyde Drexler and Hakeem Olajuwon.
Houston didn’t make much noise in the off-season despite dismissing the often-polarizing Dwight Howard, who didn't help out quite as much as anticipated when he was acquired for an expensive price a few years ago. Shooting guard James Harden is clearly the centerpiece of this franchise. Power forward Ryan Anderson is a 6-10 baller who can shoot the rock with impressive accuracy. If the supporting cast can play at a high level, entertaining games will abound in Houston this season.
The Rockets are prepared to compete with the best in the Western Conference. Every fan who purchases tickets will be able to bear witness to the action unfold at the large and impressive Toyota Center. The venue opened to the public in October 2003, and it seats just over 18,000 fans for basketball games.
