Houston Rockets point guard John Wall is on a great run so far this season, averaging 20.4 points along with 6.3 assists and looking to possibly make the All-Star game after missing two full seasons with injuries. However, the Houston Rockets’ season is not looking too great, but they have their point guard moving forward.

Wall’s leadership is impressive, and the way he gets other players involved is what the Rockets need after losing three All-Star guards in the past two years. What makes matters worse is that two of those All-Stars were MVPs.

Wall’s will to never give up and keep going in this seven-game losing streak is a great mentality that will help push the Rockets. He would be the NBA’s equivalent to the NFL’s Comeback Player of the Year and John Wall will get the Rockets back to whom we know they can be, a championship contender.

Why the Houston Rockets must remain optimistic despite their losing streak

Along with Christian Wood, who looked like he was in the MVP conversation averaging 22 points and 10.2 rebounds before going down with his injury, but will soon be out of recovery and back on the court. The Rockets should get Victor Oladipo signed to a contract that he is worthy of and make some trades to bring back more shooters, or they could also make offers this summer in free agency.

Plus, Kevin Porter Jr. is making some real noise in the Rockets’ G-League affiliate Rio Grande Vipers, averaging 22.3 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 6.3 assists. The city of Houston is long overdue for an NBA championship, as it’s been 26 years since the Rockets’ last title, but fans have been patient and are very excited about this team and what their first-year head coach, Stephen Silas, can do moving forward.

The ball is in the Rockets’ court, as they are in control of their future and are the only entity that can alter the future of the franchise, at this point. So long as the Rockets play their cards right and take care of business, their future looks very bright, in spite of their seven-game losing streak.
