Where the Houston Rockets rank among the NBA’s top 75 players
In honor of 2021-2022 being the 75th season in the NBA, the league plans to release something it calls NBA 75, which will feature an official roster of the 75 greatest players of all time.
With that in mind, our friends at HoopsHype have compiled their own rankings on the subject. To do this, HoopsHype recently held a team vote with the opinions of eight staff members. They removed the highest and lowest rank for each player and awarded 75-1 points for the rest.
Here’s how it went, with regards to the players who spent time with the Houston Rockets:
No. 11: Hakeem Olajuwon
No. 15: Moses Malone
No. 25: Charles Barkley
No. 27: Scottie Pippen
