Houston Rockets Front Office
This once entertaining, energetic and unpredictable Houston team did quite a bit to pull itself out of last season's hell — enough that a return to 14-15 form is perhaps more likely than not.
The questions abound for the Rockets, with the most looming one being whether James Harden is capable of balancing out his game in order to make the team better as a whole. Houston should be better than they were last season, but by how much will depend on injury luck and a commitment from their star guard.
Houston is loading up on shooters in Ryan Anderson and Eric Gordon to surround James Harden within Mike D'Antoni's system and must be assuming the defensive side of the floor will be a layup line regardless.
