Between them and the Trail Blazers, there is no other team that's going to get themselves a bandwagon jumper. But there's real reason to like the Rockets.
Ron Artest brings the I'm Gonna Kill You swagger. Yao and T-Mac bring the soft, injury-prone superstardom. Shane Battier is the intangible play. Skip to my Lou and the Franchise bring nickname magic to the point. Luther Head brings a silly last name and three point bombery.
And lest we forget? Carl Landry. He's a well-loved reserve! Luis Scola. HE'S FROM ARGENTINA!
Seriously. This team has a bit of a swagger. It's a return to innocence in Houston.
