    Can the Rockets win the championship?

    Classic offense first, regular season winning, 3-point bombing team. Then you have the amazing playoff combo history of D'antoni, Harden and Paul.

    Do you feel this team has a legit chance of winning an NBA title?

    They're legit. Only team who I think can realistically upset gs in the playoffs along with maybe the healthy Spurs.

    If they were in the East, they would be the instant favorites by to win the conference by far IMO

    Healthy Spurs are dangerous. They might surprise everyone.
    “It’s about winning,” Stoudemire said. “You win, you’re going to get on national TV. Simple. In Phoenix, we won — Western Conference finals three, four years, playoffs every year. We won. If you don’t win, nobody really wants to see you.”

    Phonies? Come on man.

    They can beat GS, but need that ‘clutch’ factor that they’ve lacked.
    All these years of losing in postseason I think pays off with experience and equates to being stronger in future postseason appearances. But that’s just me so....

    No Antoni led team is ever going to win a championship. Mark my words.

    Not sure phonies is the right word. I think they are comprised of soft players and when defenses clamp down and play aggressive in the playoffs, I think it will take some air out of their sails.

    The Rockets offense is a bit misleading. I read an article today about how the Warriors and Rockets offenses are different and how CP3 and Harden are the two heaviest ISO leaders in the league. They take 3s and layups on sheer volume but ball movement isnt how to describe their offense. Their assist % isnt even top 15. I love watching them play and think they're the 3rd best team in the league. IDK if you call that a phony, but I wish they played a more GSW style offense.

    The salty CP3 fan has returned.

    So your argument is all 29 teams are looked at as better than they are? Lol okay.

    I edited the thread title and expect that this thread will be why they can or can't win the championship. the second I feel this thread is about to turn into a baitfest I will close it.
