In 1984, the Houston Rockets drafted big man Hakeem Olajuwon out of the University of Houston Hakeem "the Dream" was an instant difference maker and ferocious scorer and defender. Along with Kenny "the Jet" Smith, Vernon Maxwell, and Clyde Drexler, the Rockets would win the NBA Championship in 1994 and 1995. All good things must come to an end and the Rockets would go through a period of playoff absences until the team acquired Yao Ming and Tracy McGrady. T-Mac and Yao would never be able to replicate the success of their predecessors partially due to injuries. Houston would later acquire elite scorer James Harden and play an up-tempo offense predicated on 3-point shooting but again come up short. The Rockets are now in a rebuilding phase. With a roster built around young stars Jalen Green and Kevin Porter Jr, the future should be bright for the Rockets.
