Rockets are back to its Glory Days
The Rockets team are looking strong now that Chris Paul has been replaced by Russel Westbrook. James Harden won’t have any issues with Westbrook and the duo may hopefully play as a pair in the Rockets team. Most of the top NBA teams are a contender for the NBA 2020 finals due to their power duos.
Kevin and Kyrie in Nets, LeBron and Anthony in Lakers, Leonard and George in Clippers, Curry and Thompson in Warriors, etc are the best ones. Now that the Rockets have their own duo of Harden and Westbrook, they are also in the list and can back to its glory days of dominating the NBA games.
