History of the Rockets
From their date of launch back in the 60s, the team was based in San Diego. After finally settling in Houston, in 1971 to ‘76, Murphy and Rudy T revamped the team, and they started selling out several home games in Houston.
In 1984 -1987, Hakeem Olajuwon and Sampson joined the team, and they gained even more popularity after bagging the Midwest title with a 51-31 record.
Between 1987 to 1992, Don Chaney was appointed as coach and later on he was named the Coach of the year after leading them to a 52-30 record.
Interesting enough, they earned this prestigious achievement despite Olujawon’s absence. From 1993 to 1995, they were their best years yet.
They broke several consecutive records that no NBA team has ever broken till today.
Date of Creation
The team was founded in 1967 by Bob Breitbard as San Diego Rockets; an expansion team that was initially based in San Diego.
