Basketball and Nail Polish: 30 Day NBA Challenge Day 6 *ROCKETS*

Today's Challenge: Houston Rockets
Team colors: Red, Black, White

Hi Guys,

There were several different logos for this team.  I choose this one because I like these colors.  Sorry I'm so late with this one.  I had some trouble this time around with my stamping.  Hope you still like it. 

Red: SH Salon Reddy to Mingle, 2 coats
Black: SinfulColors Black on Black, 2 coats

It was such a warm day my inspiration was butterflies saw a few of them today.

Used Konad special polish in Black and White with plate M78 (butterflies) plate M63 (swirl design)


The Houston Rockets are an American professional basketball team based in Houston, Texas. The team plays in the Southwest Division of the Western Conference in the National Basketball Association (NBA). The team was established in 1967, and played in San Diego, California for four years, before being moved to Houston.[1]
In the Rockets' debut season, they won only 15 games. But after drafting Elvin Hayes first overall in the 1969 NBA Draft, they made their first appearance in the playoffs in 1969. After Hayes was traded, Moses Malone was acquired to replace him. Malone went on to win the MVP award twice, and lead Houston to the conference finals in his first year with the team. He also took the Rockets to the NBA Finals in 1981, but they were defeated in six games by the Boston Celtics.[2]
In 1984, the Rockets drafted Hakeem Olajuwon, who led them to the 1986 Finals in his second year, where they lost again to Boston. In the next seven seasons, they lost in the first round of the playoffs five times. They did not win their first championship until 1994, when Olajuwon led them to the finals. The team repeated as champions in 1995. However, the Rockets did not advance to the finals again, and missed the playoffs from 1999–2003. They did not reach the playoffs again until they drafted Yao Ming and they did not advance past the first round of the playoffs again until 2009.[3]
