Houston Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta said that his team were going to push forward after getting knocked out of the Western Conference semifinals by the Golden State Warriors.
Fertitta guaranteed that the team would win a title with James Harden.
"They kicked our ass on our home court...I know that we're going to rise to the occasion and our time is going to come. James is 30 years old [in August]. ... Hakeem [Olajuwon] didn't win his first championship until . I can promise you, we're going to win some championships with James Harden, because we are not going to sit here. We will go to battle every year. We're going to have a strong offseason, and we're going to do whatever we need to do to be a better team. We are not going to sit on our hands, I can promise you that," said Ferititta.
Fertitta added while he loved the Rockets starting lineup, he would be exploring all angles in improving the team.
"I'm very fortunate to have the starting five that I have, but if we can make this team better, we're going to make this team better. That's just a fact. I have a great team. I love all five of my starting five, but it's my job to make sure that we put the best team that we can put on the court next year."
