The Houston Rockets are heading for a new season with lots of expectations. The addition of Dwight Howard has some even thinking of potentially competing for a championship. On paper, the team certainly has lots of potential. In addition, all the key players are relatively young, which should allow them to grow together as a team.
How well Howard performs with the Houston Rockets will determine to a great extent how much the team improves in the upcoming season. Although coming off a season where he was injured, he could potentially address the team's weaknesses in defense. As a multiple Defensive Player of the Year recipient, Howard can really make a difference.
Last year, James Harden established himself as a bonafide star, which the team can build around. His presence at guard in the backcourt with Howard at center makes for one of the best one-two combinations in the league. Also solid is the supporting cast of the Houston Rockets, starting with Harden's backcourt partner in Jeremy Lin, Chandler Parsons at small forward and presumably Omer Asik at the power forward position.
Asik's defense and rebounding will be solid and combined with Howard could turn the Houston Rockets into one of the best defensive rebounding teams in the NBA. Both Lin and Parsons have star potential and if they can step up their level of play another notch this season, the Houston Rockets could be a contender.
The bench features players such as Patrick Beverly, Terence Jones and Greg Smith. All are young and the new addition of Marcus Camby can help them with his experience. It will be up to head coach Kevin McHale to make sure that all the parts work well together as a team. The team as a whole is young with potential and they should become better as they gain experience. Will the Houston Rockets be able to contend this season? Stay tuned for the answer.
