Honoring the great Michael Jordan, 'The Last Dance' seemed to go extremely in-depth into every part of No. 23 and his dynasty with the Bulls. However, some people think they left out a very important part of that time frame.

Former Rockets player and two-time NBA champ Vernon Maxwell spoke out, saying the filmmakers ignored the Rockets back-to-back titles in 1994 and 1995. Does he have a point? You bet he does.

Considering The Last Dance is centered around Jordan and the Bulls, no one was expecting them to focus on the Rockets for too long, but to not even mention the historic run Houston went on is ludicrous.

While MJ was out for the entirety of the 1994 season and only played a small portion of the 1995 campaign, it's still quite a feat to win back-to-back titles. Suffice to say, these Rockets teams were some of the greatest of all time. They were led by Hall of Famer Hakeem Olajuwon, who was flanked by fellow Hall of Famer Clyde Drexler, Kenny Smith and Robert Horry.

It's not like the Rockets had easy competition. In 1995, as a No. 6 seed, they went through Karl Malone and John Stockton's Jazz, Charles Barkley's Suns, and MVP David Robinson's No. 1 seed Spurs before sweeping Shaq and Penny Hardaway's Magic in the NBA Finals. That's quite a few Hall of Famers the Rockets had to go through.

For some reason, these Rockets teams aren't considered among the NBA's greatest of all time. We think they deserve to be in that conversation, and at the very least, deserved a shoutout in The Last Dance.
