Bill Worrell and Matt Bullard reflect upon their favorite moments in Rockets' history
HOUSTON - There's nothing quite like life on the road with an NBA team.
Chartered flights. 5-star hotels. Free food in abundance.
But believe it or not, there's a downside, too. Post-midnight arrivals are not the exception; they're the norm. Time zones are altered and shed the way Quick Change transfigures their costumes. Friends and family are frequently missed.
Yes, for all the wonders of life in the lap of luxury, oftentimes there's still nothing so desirable as a night spent in one's own bed.
So with such a significant portion of the season spent crisscrossing the country, survival techniques are an absolute must. Few know this better than Rockets broadcasters Bill Worrell and Matt Bullard, two men who have spent countless days on the road with the Rockets. They know the hotels inside and out, create games to counter the tedium, and establish routines for every stop along the way.
That's the topic of today's roundtable discussion the last in a six-part series with Worrell and Bullard.
