What should we expect from the Houston Rockets next season?
Big Sarge: Now here is where it gets tricky because I believe that a fully healthy Rockets team would finish no further than fifth in the West. For some, that may seem like are a very hot take, but I’ve seen what they can do when they are clicking on all cylinders.
The young players have a “No Fear” attitude no matter who they are playing and that is exactly what they need to compete in the West.
Tony Cole: My expectations for the team next year is that they will take steps toward contending. That’s not predicting a playoff or play-in-game berth, just that the chemistry and overall play of the team will get better.
Home-grown talent takes patience. I want to see them get better and better as the games go along.
Anthony Duckett: Next year, I don’t think the Rockets will be nearly as bad as they were last season. The Rockets wouldn’t even have been that bad were it not for the barrage of injuries that they had to overcome.
Will the Rockets be within the top 5 in the Western Conference? Most likely not but I do think they could end up being a play-in team.
As you can see the opinions vary when it comes to the biggest topics concerning the Houston Rockets’ future. When you are coming off a season where you had the worst record in the league, a lot of times there are more questions than answers, but with the Rockets securing the second pick, the team is heading in the right direction for the first time in over a year.
