HOUSTON - These are your guys.

You live and die with them, rejoice when they triumph and share in their pain. Such is the essence of fandom; a symbiotic bond borne of passion, perseverance and unwavering support.

So tell us, Rockets fans, who stirs those feelings within you the most? Perhaps you’re smitten with the derring-do of Dragic or the indomitable spirit of Scola. Maybe Kyle Lowry is your guy or perhaps Chander Parsons is No. 1 in your heart. Whatever the case, we want to know who your favorite current Houston Rocket is and we’re giving you a chance to express your support in the most passionate, creative way possible.

Here’s how: Shoot a short video telling us all about your most cherished member of the team and why he is “your guy.” Have fun with it. Tell a story. Take a stroll down memory lane. Make it your own. Just be sure to capture the passion that this player inspires in you. When you’re finished, upload the video (YouTube suggested) and send us the link at myfavoriterocket@rocketball.com.

Now here’s the best part: Once we’ve received all the submissions (deadline to upload your video is 5 PM CST on Tuesday, April 24), the Rockets will then determine the best of the bunch with the winner receiving two free tickets to Houston’s April 26 Fan Appreciation Night Presented by Toyota and an opportunity to meet your favorite player before the Rockets take on the New Orleans Hornets that evening.

These are your guys. Now let them know that you really are their biggest fan.
