1. Houston Rockets 34-14
The Houston Rockets are the best team in the NBA and no one can tell me otherwise. Reread everything I wrote about the Atlanta Hawks being a great team but then just add the best player in the league and you have the Rockets.
Every player completely buys into the scheme. Let James Harden work and get open. It’s like watching the Green Bay Packers when Aaron Rodgers escapes the pocket. All of the receivers just scramble around trying to get open for Aaron. Well every player just lines up at the perimeter and waiters for Harden to dish it. James Harden is making Sam Dekker look like Klay Thompson out there.
