To continue our Top 5 series, we’ll discuss the greatest shooting guards to ever play for the Houston Rockets.

Throughout their 50 years of existence, the Houston Rockets have had some phenomenal players on their roster. Although they haven’t been able to rack up as many championships as Red Nation would have liked, they’ve still provided fans with many unforgettable moments.

As a celebration of the team’s birthday, Space City Scoop will honor the greatest Rockets of all time.

When ranking the players, we look at two qualities: what they’ve accomplished during their time in Houston and the mark they’ve made on the team’s history.

To make the list accurate, we will be placing players under the position that they played the greater amount of time in. For example, Elvin Hayes would be categorized as a power forward because that is the position where he spent the majority of his career.

Similar to last time where we honored the greatest point guards, today we will be discussing the shooting guards. Let’s begin!
