Expectations are everything in the NBA. How you’re judged before the first jump-ball of the season determines how your season will be viewed in retrospect. That seems to be especially true of the Houston Rockets narrative. That cuts away from the truth, though. Expectations are worthless. Dwight Howard expected the Atlanta Hawks to treasure his return to his hometown. They traded him after a year.
What a way to start the season. Reigning champions the Golden State Warriors will begin their quest to repeat against formidable opposition in the Houston Rockets. The Warriors will look to pick up right where they left off last season after blitzing through the playoffs and going 16-1 en route to a second title in three years. With last year’s group intact, plus new additions in Nick Young, Omri Casspi and promising rookie Jordan Bell, Golden State will be a force to be reckoned with once again.
However, the Rockets have also had themselves a strong offseason, acquiring Chris Paul in a trade with the Clippers in July. James Harden finally has another star in the lineup to take some of the pressure off, one who is also more than capable of carrying the offense, as Harden did so well last season. They may have missed out on Carmelo Anthony, but the Rockets still have one of the stronger teams in the Western Conference.
