Patience is no longer in style at least when it comes to the Rockets’ goals and plans.

After three years spent retooling sometimes slowly reconfiguring the roster and sometimes completely transforming it the Rockets not only plan to become contenders the strategies for building the team have shifted dramatically from long-term hopes to short term aspirations.

“We’re focused on winning now” Rockets general manager Daryl Morey said. “Everything is all-in on right now. We had Yao Ming and Tracy McGrady both great players and it looked like that run would be a long time. Your chances to be very good are very special. When you have them you have to focus 100 percent on getting as far as possible.
