The Houston Rockets
The Rockets were formed in 1967 and were known as The San Diego Rockets. The team moved to Houston in 1971 and has been called The Houston Rockets ever since. They play their home games at the Toyota Center.
Their debut season wasn’t special as they won only 15 games. In 1968, Elvin Hayes joined the team and he would later lead the team to its first playoff appearance. The Rockets had an unimpressive record till the 1976-77 season, when Moses Malone joined the team.
He led the team to the conference finals. He was also the leading player when the Rockets made the NBA Finals in 1981. In 1984, Hakeem Olajuwon joined the team. Olajuwon along with Ralph Samson, nicknamed the “Twin Towers” led the team to the 1986 NBA Finals. The Rockets made it to the playoffs throughout the 1980s but always failed to go past the second round, till Rudy Tomjanovich was hired as the head coach. The Rockets would go on to win back-to-back NBA Championship titles in 1994 and 1995.
The Toronto Raptors
The Toronto Raptors’ 2016 season was fantastic – it won the playoff series, for the first time in 15 years. They appeared in the third round of the playoffs, but lost to the Cavaliers. They are hungrier than ever before to win the NBA Championship.
