Ralph Sampson may not have had the greatest of NBA careers, but Sampson is still a legend in some eyes, and continues to be revered in the Houston community. Sampson reportedly was one of the big reasons Dwight Howard chose the Rockets, and Sampson told Pro Basketball Talk that the “Rockets have built a really good foundation,” and he likes the direction the team is taking. You got a good start (in Houston), you got the makings of a good foundation, now the coaching staff and everybody’s got to put it together,” Sampson told ProBasketballTalk during the adidas Nations high school showcase, where Sampson was a coach. “The pieces are coming together but it’s an 82-game season a lot of things can happen as far as injuries or other situations.” Sampson thinks Howard will flourish running pick and roll with Rockets star James Harden.
