When the Rockets traded away 6-foot-10 Clint Capela in February and started exclusively using players no taller than 6-7, a moniker was born: Pocket Rockets.

When they won five games in a row with that unique lineup, the name picked up steam and started appearing in Houston Chronicle headlines.

That started a mini-debate in the newsroom.

Do you know what Pocket Rocket actually means?

Sure, Pocket Rockets is what poker players call a hand of pocket aces.

Um … try again.

OK. Well, Pocket Rockets is also what local police have long-called miniature motorcycles that sometimes terrorize the streets of local neighborhoods.
