ClutchFans is a Houston Rockets news site created in August of 1996 by David Hardisty under the pen name “Clutch.”

Originally named “Clutch City ’97”, the site was developed as a place for passionate Rockets fans to gather and discuss the team and has exploded to become one of the biggest NBA sites on the Internet.

“I think ClutchFans is the best sports fan community of any team that I’ve ever seen and others have told me the same,” said Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey.
