In Houston like everywhere in the USA, there is no way around NBA games. If you are lucky enough to be in the tribunes, watch the spectators with attention as the biggest followers collect jerseys of their favourite team. The Rockets' are red (sometimes also grey or black, depending on their adversaries). Whether you are a fan of the Rockets or not though, it is courtside that the show goes on.
Living up to its reputation, the NBA league offers shows that only the USA know how to deliver with cheerleaders, music, and large screens. The Rockets are no different.
The team has seen its day in the 1980s, even though the McGrady/Ming double act made the sports headlines in the 2000s. Today, the Toyota Center also welcomes the Houston Aeros, the hockey team, a sport less talked about in the rest of the world, but just as spectacular.
