As we celebrate Christmas Day, let’s take a look at six gifts that the Houston Rockets should have asked Santa Claus to place under the Christmas tree!

When the Houston Rockets compiled their Christmas wishlist, they likely realized they didn’t need as many presents as many of the other teams around the league. The Rockets are one of the best teams in the NBA this season, and the trade which landed Russell Westbrook in Houston has been a risk worth taking.

The Rockets have been the third-best team in the Western Conference this season based on their 21-9 record and their current ranking on the Western Conference standings, which is very encouraging. If you recall, during the 2018-19 season the Rockets were 17-15 heading into their Christmas Day game against the Russell Westbrook-led Oklahoma City Thunder, but it was a miracle that the Rockets had even won that many games based on their 11-14 start to the year.

This year is a much different situation, which means the Rockets don’t necessarily need to have alot of presents under the tree when they wake up on Christmas Day. The Rockets arguably have two of the ten best players in the league, who are both still in their primes, so life could be much worse.

Despite that, the Rockets still have a wishlist of presents that they will be expecting Santa to get them. Let’s take a look at six of the gifts the Rockets had on their Christmas wishlist as we enjoy Christmas Day with our families and loved ones!
