Houston Rockets Tickets

Making the playoffs was what it was all about last season. Many people bought Rockets tickets just for this purpose. Sadly they did not win the title this year.

Even with their number one player Yao Ming down in the second game, the team pushed it all the way up to game 7. Perseverance is something these guys know all about. This is why a Rockets ticket is never a waste of your time. But what is in store for us in the next season?

Houston Rockets Tickets for Sale

The Houston Rockets are bringing an interesting collection of players to the floor this upcoming NBA season. Spark plug point guard Aaron Rodgers is gone not that Kyle Lowry has finally began to live up to his potential. He is a decent shooter with an ability to penetrate and distribute. Last season he started 71 of 75 games and impressed after the all-star game. He averaged 16.8 points and 7.3 assists in the second half and should be the answer at point for the 2011-2012 season.

He will have shooting guard Kevin Martin and small forward Chase Budinger on the perimeter. Martin has one of the sweetest strokes in the NBA and Budinger broke out as a starter after the trade deadline. Luis Scola is a great power forward with an ugly game, leaving the only hole in the starting lineup at center. Underwhelming Hasheem Thabeet is still under contract and Chuck Hayes could be an easy resign, but he is undersized. If the Rockets see no other options, expect Hayes, the overachieving, undersized anomaly to be resigned simply because he has a knack for grabbing rebounds.

Houston Rockets History

The Houston Rockets entered the league in 1967 as the San Diego Rockets. Rockets tickets moved east to the bustling Texas city after the 1970-71 season. For the first decade, this franchise proved to be a team struggling in the middle of the pack or sinking to the bottom of the standings. Calvin Murphy and Rudy Tomjanovich kept this team afloat through the 1970s, but they were not enough to make the Rockets a true contender until Moses Malone arrived for a short run at the end of the decade and the beginning of the 1980s.

Anyone with Houston Rockets since the 1980s knows that the team's pedigree demands size, not guard play. It began in 1983 when the Rockets drafted 7 foot 4 Ralph Sampson. A season later they drafted seven-foot tall Hakeem Olajuwon. For four seasons Sampson and Olajuwon terrorized the Western Conference as the Twin Towers. Houston went to their second NBA Finals in the second season of the Twin Towers. They lost to a familiar foe, the Boston Celtics. The Twin Towers experiment ended when the Rockets traded Sampson to the Warriors because of his chronic knee injuries. Drugs, major issue in the NBA in the 1980s, would take their entire backcourt.

The rebuilt 1990s Houston Rockets signed Rudy Tomjanovich as head coach and surrounded Hakeem Olajuwon's dream shake with Kenny Smith, Vernon Maxwell, Otis Thorpe, and Clyde Drexler. The Rockets won the NBA Finals in consecutive seasons in 1994 and 1995 in Michael Jordan's absence. The franchise spent the 21st century trying to find the right stars to put on the roster to reach those finals again. Point guard Steve Francis turned out not to be the franchise, Tracy McGrady endured too many hits to his slender frame, and Yao Ming was plagued by foot and ankle injuries. TheSeats has the Houston Rockets tickets as the team finds it plays better basketball at the Toyota Center with fewer superstars.
