Let's be honest, the Rockets are one move away from being contenders
Seriously. And they are about to surpass the Warriors 6th seed tonight. You actually think the Warriors can beat the team that beat them back to back? Plus the 3rd time last week (while my pet passed)? I seriously am contemplating becoming a Rockets fan since Lin is on the team.
A member on here tried to cheer me up and he said that the Warriors are a great young team that's 2 years away from being a contender. But aren't the Rockets a young team too? So that should make them contenders. Asik dominates Bogut. James Harden is a bona fide superstar.
They might land Howard as well. Imagine D12 with Linsanity and Mr. fear The Beard. They will be right up there with the Thunder.

Rockets have little chance of landing Howard, and if they did, they would have to slow their offense down. I see the Rockets as being 5-8th seed for years to come. They will need to change their team quite a bit if they want to bolster their defense.
