Houston Rockets Tickets for Sale

The Houston Rockets have been a fortunate franchise in since they began paying in 1967. The team was able to bring in Moses Malone in the 1970s. Malone played with Calvin Murphy, Rudy Tomjanovich, and Mike Newlin to take the team from the dreaded expansion team years to a run as a contender for playoff tickets and the championship. By the 1980-81 season the Rockets were in the NBA Finals. The trip was ended by the Boston Celtics, the same team that would beat the Rockets when they returned to the NBA Finals in 1986.

Hakeem Olajuwon was a member of that 1986 team and was one of the twin towers that competed for many years in a conference dominated by the Los Angeles Lakers. Olajuwon became the centerpiece for the Rockets team that used the Bulls break from the NBA Finals in the mid-90s. The teams made the postseason with rosters that featured Kenny Smith, Sam Cassell, and Clyde Drexler. The playoff tickets in 1994 and 1995 followed the Rockets as they beat the New York Knicks in seven games and the Orlando Magic in four straight for two straight championships.

When the Rockets first took to the court in 1967, they were not the Houston Rockets we know today. Then they were the San Diego Rockets, a struggling expansion team that lost an amazing 67 games their first season alone. But Elvin Hayes and Calvin Murphy would work their magic to get this new team up and going on the right track.

The Houston Rockets have a tradition of playing some of the best big men in the game. Moses Malone, Ralph Sampson, and Hakeem Olajuwon played in the paint in the past, but now Yao Ming controls the post and the Rocket’s fate.

This season fans at the Toyota Center will be anxious to see Yao Ming, Tracy McGrady, and Ron Artest on the floor at the same time. In theory the trio should take the Rockets to a deep run in the postseason. In reality for the club to even ensure Rockets playoff tickets those Houston players have to stay healthy (Ming and McGrady) over the entire course of the 82-game schedule and keeping their head on straight (Artest). If things do go well and the players can get a long then the team has a great post player in the 7 foot 6 Ming, a great slasher and scorer in McGrady, and a defensive ace with range in Artest.

The rest of the role players will include Rafer Alston, Luis Scola, Shane Battier, and Chuck Hayes. Alston has come a long way from his street ball days and is now a starting point guard. Scola is a power forward with an ugly, but effective game. He is not going to dunk on anyone, but he will shoot a high percentage, know when to pass the ball, and buy into the team defense. Battier is a solid defender and decent outside shooter. Hayes is a good on the boards and play great post defense. How far the playoff tickets for the Houston Rockets go is really up to these guys play to support the big three.

This really is a team of “ifs”. Coach Rick Adleman’s team is a fragile one. Once again, assuming that Yao Ming and Tracy McGrady are healthy, the Houston Rockets should be one of the best teams in the league. The team only got better by signing Ron Artest. The Brent Barry signing helps, but his outside shooting is nothing compared with the incredible defense Artest can add. Of course Artest’s behavior is another “if.”

The team will play amazing team defense if al the pieces fit. It will be interesting to see what happens with an offense that wants to run with Rafer Alston at point guard and Tracy McGrady on the wing, but that has the need to play a slower game with Yao Ming and Luis Scola in the post. Ming’s health is already in question after re-injuring himself playing in the Olympics. The revised plan for his to play fewer minutes during the season will allow the Rockets to exploit that full court potential they have.

In July of 2009, the Houston Rockets picked up Trevor Aziza and signed him to a 5 year contract to help replace the injured Yao Ming. Ariza is not new to the game, coming from the championship team Los Angeles Lakers. Hopefully for the Houston Rockets ticket holding fans, Arzia will find his groove with his new team and a new home at the Toyota Center in Houston. A new face could be just what the team needs to boost their ticket sales.

The starting lineup will be composed of Kevin Martin and Kyle Lowry in the backcourt and Luis Scola, Chase Budinger, and Hasheem Thabeet in the front court. The Rockets may not have a superstar, but they had an excellent shooter/scorer in Martin, a developing second option in Budinger, and Lowry finally gets the point guard position. Martin is unhappy though. He was supposed to be sent to New Orleans as part of the package to bring Pau Gasol to take over as center. The front office needs to do their best to resuscitate this waning relationship.

Budinger is an interesting player. He has oodles of athleticism but has yet to figure out how to utilize it on the court. He has refined his outside shot and become a serviceable starting small forward. The Houston Rockets has a point guard who can distribute as well. Lowry became a 17 point, 7 assist player at the end of last season. Add Thabeet as a defensive force in the middle and let Scola remains a solid player no matter how ugly his game happens to be.

The Houston Rockets could have had a decent bench too. Patrick Patterson and rookie Marcus Morris could surprise as power forwards, center Jordan Hill is effective in limited minutes, and Courtney Lee is coming off the bench as a decent outside scorer. This is not a promise. The Rockets bench is young and susceptible to inconsistent play.

The TicketSpecialists has the Houston Rockets tickets for the 2012 NBA season at the Toyota Center. The schedule is shorter this season, and that will amp up the competition and make every seat more than worth the price of admission.
