While the Houston Rockets have won two NBA titles, they’ve had several players that found even more championship success elsewhere in their careers.

While MVPs and scoring titles are revered in NBA circles, individual legacies often come down to championships won. The Houston Rockets have enjoyed two rings in their franchise history, but a handful of the team’s players ended up with more when all was said and done.

Judging legacies by titles alone isn’t exactly fair, of course, as there have been superstars like Karl Malone, Charles Barkley and Allen Iverson that never once reached that pinnacle in their careers, yet are still among the NBA’s best players ever.

Still, whether it be by luck of the draw or being an important piece, there have been 76 players in NBA history that can say they’ve won at least three NBA championships. There’s something to say for guys that have been able to find themselves on winning teams so often.

While there are obviously several guys that won two championships with the Rockets and beyond, only six players that have spent time in Houston can cover the majority of one hand with rings.

Listed from least rings to most, here are they are, starting with one man that didn’t waste any time getting his first title.
