The potential is readily apparent with zero additions. The starting lineup has 4/5 guys starting for the basically the first time in their career. Parsons is locked into a 4 year sub-million dollar contract and can put up 25+ on any given night and this is only his second season in the NBA. Plus they have max+ cap room to add any free agent they want this off season.


Since 2002:


Number of above .500 seasons
Rockets = 9
Texans = 3

Number of playoff appearances
Rockets = 5 (plus this year)
Texans = 2

The arrow is point:
Rockets = up
Texans = down
Boom! Down comes the hammer. Rep coming your way.
