The Houston Rockets are the hardest working team in the business. If winning is your goal, this is the place as Houston is loaded with intelligent and relentless players ready to compliment its stars.
Their guards grace the court with blazing speed and tickle the twine with amazing efficiency. Their forwards give up their bodies on a nightly basis to keep opponents off balance. Their center is, hands down, the very best in basketball.
To boot, the Rockets may have the NBA's top management trio: A Hall of Fame coach in Rick Adelman, an innovative general manager in Daryl Morey and an aggressive, well-respected owner in Les Alexander.
Keep in mind, Chris -- this team, without their star player in Yao Ming, was 42-40 last year in the slaughterhouse that is the Western Conference. In 2010 though, the big fella is back. This team is ready to explode. The time to get on board is right now.
