Houston Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni isn’t worried about the format in which the NBA adopts, as he believes the Rockets have the ability to beat anyone.

To say that NBA fans have been missing basketball would be a major understatement, as it’s been nearly three months since we last saw any sort of basketball action. This has left many to wonder what type of conditioning the players would be in upon a return, and it’s clear that the Houston Rockets have remained in condition, as Russell Westbrook has been training non-stop and James Harden has appeared much thinner.

Although the players are clearly ready to get back on the court, the NBA’s front office has been formulating plans of what a return would look like. We heard just last week that NBA commissioner Adam Silver was considering Houston as a destination city, although what we’ve heard of late is that Orlando is likely the landing spot, if and when the league does return.

But Houston Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni isn’t worried about the logistics, as he explained on KHOU’s Sports Extra.

“I’m just ready to get started. I don’t care where we go.” D’Antoni said. “I’m sure the NBA will do a great job of trying to make it as safe as possible. Hopefully the competition will be good, which it will be. So yeah I’m excited. When you see the end of the tunnel, you start to get your juices back up.”
