The Houston Rockets have had a lot of sustained success over the years. What would an All-Decade team look like for one of the league’s most consistent franchises?

This decade has been one to remember for the Houston Rockets. After Tracy McGrady and Yao Ming helped Houston succeed throughout much of the 2000’s, James Harden has been the centerpiece for Houston throughout the 2010’s.

Since the start of the decade, the Rockets have had five 50-plus win seasons, including a franchise record setting 65-win season. They’ve also appeared in the post season seven times and have advanced to the Western Conference Finals twice.

In a Western Conference that has been consistently much more talented than the Eastern Conference and playing in a state in which the two other teams have championships in this decade, the Rockets should be given a lot of credit for just how competitive they’ve been.

Of course, a team is only the sum of its parts, and the Rockets have had so many talented players throughout the years. If we were to build a Rockets starting lineup using only the best Rockets players at each position since 2010, who would make the cut? Let’s begin with our starting point guard.
