The Houston Rockets have had several amazing teams throughout the years, some of which have taken home the ultimate prize. Other teams have had just as much talent as those championship teams but ultimately ran into a buzzsaw or had some misfortune that led to them not quite reaching their fullest potential.
Breaking it down position-by-position, I’ll be looking at the 1995 NBA Championship roster in comparison to the regular season record-setting 2017 Houston Rockets. Of course, when looking at it from a pure accomplishment standpoint, there is no comparison.
However, when you break down the actual matchups, the teams are a lot closer than you would think.
