Last year’s Media Day

Last year was an interesting Media Day for the Rockets. It was the first time in multiple years that Dwight Howard was not included in the festivities. The Rockets had a new look and there were many question marks around the team.

Mike D’Antoni was the new coach and was immediately put under pressure with Media Day. If you would like to watch last year’s Media Day interview with Coach and Daryl Morey, click here.

The team welcomed new additions such as Eric Gordon and Ryan Anderson last year as well. As you know, those additions helped the Rockets to a 55-27 record, which was good enough for the third seed in the West.

What will be new this year

The Rockets will have all new jerseys to show off in their Media Day pictures this season. That, along with other new additions such as Luc Mbah a Moute, P.J. Tucker and Tarik Black, will be the major additions come September 25.

It should be a pretty exciting day all in all. This year’s Media Day has the potential to be great due to all the new additions. Be sure to stay tuned that day to Space City Scoop if you want all the new information! Be sure to follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook!
