 Pippen: The Rockets didnt have the sense of urgency to win the championship before they were strong in the regular season.


Hall of Fame superstar Scottie Pippen recently discussed why the Rockets failed to win the title after the Great Dream Age.

Pippen spent a short year with the Rockets after leaving the Bulls, when the Rockets assembled the Big Dream - Buckley - Pippen three giants, but was eliminated by the Lakers in the first round.

Pippen said: I used to play in Houston, where the fans were fantastic. Although I dont want to say that, I still feel that the Rockets are a strong regular season team, there is really not much sense of urgency and pressure to win the championship. I think thats how the Rockets are genetically programmed. Its satisfying to win 60 games in the regular season.

Maybe thats why Rockets owner Fertita said he wanted to change the culture of the team. The Rockets have played in the playoffs since the Great Dream Era, but few of them reached the Western Finals and never won the Western Championship again. Of course, Pippen is still optimistic about Hardens future. Although Hardens style of play is controversial, Pippen still believes that the future of building a team with Harden as its core is better than that with LeBron as its core. He discussed the subject with LeBrons former teammate Richard Jefferson. If you want to win the next most important game, who will be the core? Their first choice is Durant, but Pippens second choice is Harden, the third choice is Lebron, and Jeffersons second choice is LeBron. Harden is the second most powerful player in the league.
