The most significant signing in the frenzied two week period leading to the start of the NBA season is Houston's acquisition of Scottie Pippen. The all-star forward has a shot at winning a seventh NBA title this summer -- an accomplishment which give him one more championship than Michael Jordan, the man whose image he toiled under. With Akeem Olajuwon, Charles Barkley and Pippen the Rockets have the muscle to go all the way, as long as stay healthy.
