Jonathan Feigen has been the Rockets’ beatwriter since 1998, and a basketball nut since then, before Willis Reed hobbled for Game 7, he became a sports writer because the reporter who was supposed to cover the University of Delaware basketball team decided to get one instead playing college lacrosse another season, and never looking back

Feigen, who has won APSE, APME, and United States Basketball Writers Association awards from El Campo to Houston, came to Texas in 1981 to cover the Rice Birds He was a sports editor in Garland before moving to Dallas to cover everything from the Southwest Conference finals hooray to the SMU after the death penalty

After joining the Houston Chronicle in 1990, Feigen reported on the downfall of the SWC, the rise of the Big 12 and the Rockets in their best championship
