HOUSTON As the Rockets battle it out with the Thunder for a chance to advance in the NBA playoffs, we thought it would be fun to look back at the first time they won the NBA Championship.

In 1994, the Rockets bested the Knicks to claim the title, sending fans dancing into the streets in a weeklong celebration.

While going through our KHOU 60th anniversary photo albums we came across pictures from our trip to New York City to cover the series.

They stirred up memories of Hakeem Olajuwon s appearance on David Letterman. Only KHOU 11 was allowed to go behind-the scenes into the green room with Dream and comedian Chris Rock. We met Paul Schaeffer and Larry Bud Melman, and even bumped into Dave wearing old jeans and a ball cap.

And remember when Dave sent roving correspondents Sirajul and Mujibur to cover the games in Houston? They were hilarious!

We hope you enjoy the memories as much as we do!
