5 Season-dictating narratives to follow after a splashy offseason by the Houston Rockets.
The Houston Rockets may very well be a team on the rise considering the wealth of talent that they have accumulated over the past two seasons. This should be a fun and interesting group of players and we will see how new head coach Ime Udoka handles situations within the locker room, and how he will distribute minutes among so many talented players all while writing his own story of redemption.
And now that the roster has improved, it’s time for the wins to start piling up and it’s time to begin competing for championships. Even though they have had o endure the necessary growing pains it is realistic to expect the Rockets to improve as a lot of their young players gained experience despite another disappointing season.
The Houston Rockets could be ready to take a big step forward this season
With the additions of Udoka and the veteran players they added, they should be better prepared to compete for a playoff spot instead of focusing on rebuilding. This season should be all about building chemistry and figuring out which areas they need to improve moving forward. Now that the Rockets have brought in Udoka, can we expect him to coach this talented team back to respectability?
I expect Udoka to show these young guys how to play the right way and to hold players accountable as he should demand and earn their respect. With Udoka’s defensive acumen, he will make sure his players pick up the intensity on the defensive end. This roster has tons of promise and potential and this is the perfect situation for Udoka to walk into.
