As the Astros continue their playoff push, the superstar of their neighbor, the Houston Rockets, shows his belief in the team.
James Harden has always shown support for the teams of H-Town. The Houston Rockets star continued that trend by saying that the Astros will be going back-to-back this year.
The Astros are in the midst of their best season in franchise history, in terms of record. That’s something the Rockets were able to achieve last season. It’s a great time to be a Houston sports fan, that’s for sure.
Here’s Harden’s message to the ‘Stros that he gave through the Player’s Tribune:
"The 'Stros won it last year. They're winning again this year."

The Astros definitely did win it last year. They went through three historic powerhouses, the Red Sox, Yankees and Dodgers, on their path to a World Series title for Houston. They’re looking to do it once again and definitely have the team to achieve that success.
The Rockets will have to go through a powerhouse themselves if they want to be champions this season. The Golden State Warriors will be in their path once again and this time, they’ve added yet another All-Star. Can the Rockets beat the odds and bring home a title? Should the Astros repeat and the Rockets bring it home, that’d be three title in two years for a city that desperately deserves them.
Golden Age of Houston sports
We are truly in one of the best times to be a Houston sports fan. The Astros have multiple MVP candidates, including one that won it last year in Jose Altuve. The Rockets are one of the best teams in the league and nearly took down the Warriors dynasty last season behind their MVP, James Harden, and one of the best point guards to ever play, Chris Paul. The Texans are off to a slow start, but have the talent to come back and make a playoff push.
All three main professional sports in Houston are booming, and you should definitely be happy if you are a fan of them. Championships will be contended for in the city for years to come, as there is quite a bit of young talent in the city.
Like last year, expect to see the Beard show up for some Astros playoff games should the schedules line up. He was at Minute Maid Park quite a few times last October, as were other Rockets players. This city and its stars are behind every team 100%.
