Booking Houston Rockets Player Appearances
The Houston Rockets were originally founded in 1967 and played the first four years of the team’s history in San Diego rather than Houston. The team moved in 1971 where they remain today, playing in the Southwest Division of the Western Conference at Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.
In 1969, the Rockets drafted one of its many stars, Elvin Hayes, as the first pick. This was the first year, but not the last, that the team would make it to the playoffs. The next big star to play on the team was Moses Malone who signed after Hayes was traded. Malone would also take the team to the playoffs and ultimately the championship finals in 1981 where the team was beat by the Boston Celtics. One of the biggest stars for the team, Hakeem Olajuwon was drafted in 1984 and played with another great Ralph Sampson. They formed what was then called “The Twin Towers” because of their height. Olajuwon led the team to their first championship in 1994 when the Rockets beat the New York Knicks. Other exceptional players on the team include Yoa Ming and Tracy McGrady.
