Now that we’re a good way through the regular season, how does the current roster of the Houston Rockets rank from one to ten?

So far this season, the Houston Rockets have proved that they are one of the best teams in the NBA and should absolutely be taken seriously. After acquiring Chris Paul in the offseason, the Rockets showed the basketball world that they had championship ambitions, and so far they haven’t disappointed.

James Harden is having yet another MVP-caliber season, and Chris Paul still has those same mesmerizing ball-handling and passing skills. Clint Capela, Houston’s starting center, is putting up career numbers almost across the board. Eric Gordon is having another Sixth Man of the Year worthy season and Trevor Ariza is flourishing in his usual 3-and-D role.

The Houston Rockets have been able to beat teams with their offense and defense, as well as by out shooting teams from deep or outscoring them in the paint. This is one of the most deep, versatile and unselfish teams in the league, and their domination in the first quarter of the season reflects that.

The Rockets usually only play their top nine or ten players, so we’ll leave the bench warmers off of this list. They haven’t really had enough floor time to accurately rank them. So without further ado, let’s get into the top 10 players on the Houston Rockets.

Next: No. 10
