1. How long have you been a Rockets fan?
I am scouting a new team to become a fan of. Houston is in my top who I am watching right now. I like them as a team, and as an organization. I could never go to San Antonio, Dallas, OKC or NO, I just don't like any of them and never have.
2. Who is your favorite Rocket of all time?
I like 93 and 94 Houston's Hakeem Olajuwon, Otis Thorpe, and Sam Cassell! Everyone loved Thorpe, even in Utah. Olajuwon, was just one of the best there ever was. I personally liked Cassell, cause I like PG's the most.
3. How did you become a Rockets fan?
Well, when I was a kid, I collected their cards, saw them a lot in playoffs cause they always faced Jazz. I have rooted for them in the past, but never really committed to them fully. I mean it was hard to watch other teams, except when they face hometown teams.
4. What is your favorite moment in the history of the Rockets?
93 Playoffs. That was the first year that I started watching basketball, mostly playoff games, I was 7. It wasn't till 94 till I really got into it, but I remember that first year in 93, cause everyone was going crazy cause Jazz went to 3rd round. I remember Houston beat Jazz in the Western Conference Finals, and everyone got pissed cause I am in Salt Lake. I enjoyed it, and followed Houston into the finals(i guess everyone did, they wanted to lose to the best)
5. What drew you to posting on the Rockets Forum on PSD?
Just wanting to see how the fans are for the team I want to commit to. I have hit up other threads, and have to say some other clubs are lame to chat with. I mean I am looking for the best overall package.
6. What do you think we could do to make this Forum more interesting?
Enough consistent persons posting and bringing actual talking and debating, not yelling and trolling.
7. Any message for fellow Rockets fans?
I was a big Houston fan as a kid. I really got back into them when they got Lin. Like I said, my favorite position is PG, mainly cause that is what I played.
I see Lin as my favorite PG, and with James Harden as the new Hakeem(as far as making points), I can see myself committing to Houston for the long run, even without these two stars, cause this has been a great club for a long time. Now that I have LP, I can finally just choose who ever I want cause I can watch any game, and any team. Houston was one of the top few that came to mind. Plus I could see myself moving there after college.
All great things come to an end...even in basketball -Me
