The Houston Rockets have been consistently building up their roster over the past few seasons.
The organisation has been managing to bring in some of the biggest names in the NBA. And this off season is no exception.
They have successfully managed to secure former L.A. Lakers player Dwight Howard. Although Howard will come with a considerable price tag, that sure hasn’t discouraged the Rin anyway whatsoever.
As stated above, this organisation sure hasn’t been afraid to spend large amounts of money to bring in exceptionally talented players like Harden and Howard. Perhaps they figure if the team in Miami can do it, then what’s stopping them from doing the same thing?
But is this situation really similar to when the Miami Heat brought in their big three? I’m sure many Rockets’ fans believe it is. And really, I can’t blame the fans for getting overwhelmed with excitement. Having Howard, Harden and Lin out on the floor at the same time will be challenging for any opponent to handle.
However, I still believe work needs to be done to increase the depth within the Rocket’s roster. It is currently filled with very young players. In some cases this can be an advantage. But I believe the organisation still needs to find a few veteran players in order to guide and mentor the younger players.
In my opinion, these younger players will not be able to fight off guys like Lebron James or Paul Pierce all game long.
Now to be clear, the signing of Howard will be extremely beneficial. I believe they will make the playoffs, and have a relatively long playoff campaign.
However, I do not believe this current squad has enough depth or experience to win a championship just yet.
But this team certainly has the potential to become one of the greatest teams in the NBA. I’m sure this team will be challenging for the championship trophy in the very near future. I can’t wait to see how far this team will progress in the upcoming season.
