People might think that the Golden State Warriors might be the favorite to win it all this year but the Houston Rockets might have something to say about that. Houston Rockets have the best record in the NBA with a 24-4 Record. The addition of Chris Paul has took this team to the next level. People think that James Harden and Chris Paul would not mix well because they both want the ball in their hands. But, they are making it work. The Rockets are clicking on all cylinders. They are the Power House of the Power House teams in the NBA right now. The Golden State Warriors look like they are still trying to gel but they are still 23-6. Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, Andre Iguodala and Draymond Green are still the core of the team to win the championship again this year. Warriors have a good bench players as well like Shaun Livingston, Jordan Bell. Jordan Bell is a finisher around the rim regardless if he is a rookie or not. The man will give opponent defender the business above the rim.
Moving on, the Eastern Conference has two teams really. The Cleveland Cavaliers (Cavs) and the Boston Celtics. The Cavs still the same team. I mean they have some new players but nothing relevant. When Lebron James is on your team. You always have a chance to go to the championship game. But, they do have an injury Isaiah Thomas which can be a game changer later on in the year when he returns. Kyrie Irving could not deal with Lebron anymore so he is with the Boston Celtics now. I think the Celtics can beat the Cavs this year in the eastern conference final. We all know LEBRON IS NOT CLOSER. KYRIE IS A CLOSER. THE REASON THE CAVALIERS WON THE CHAMPIONSHIP FEW YEARS AGO WAS KYRIE IRVING. LETS GET THAT CLEAR. The Boston Celtics are young and they have a good team that gels together. Kyrie is leading the team after they started slow. With losing of one their starters (Gordon Heyward)with a leg injury they are still something to mess with.
Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum are good young players that are making the Celtics a fun team to watch. Jayson Tatum high basketball IQ is making him look like a veteran out there on the court. The Celtics top picks in the past few drafts looks like they are a good pick. Coach Brad Stevens a good team leader with picking his players for the team along with the good front office moves in the draft and free agents. I think the Celtics are missing something not sure what it is but I feel like they are not ready to win a championship yet. I mean the western conference teams are not a joke. It will take something marvelous to happen for an eastern conference team to win the championship this year.
Transitioning back to the western conference, the spurs are always a team to keep an eye on because they have a good coach and a team that could catch some teams in the western conference by surprise in the playoffs. To be honest, the two team in the western conference right now are the Warriors and the Rockets. They are the team to beat and catch up to. So, with that being said I am looking forward to those two team meeting late in the playoffs this year. In the eastern conference, it should be the Cavs and Celtics. Really, the eastern conference is weak so only two team can come out of the conference. Unlike the eastern conference, the western conference has two team (Warriors and Rockets) I said previously but the western conference has at least three other team that can come out the west. San Antonio Spurs, Oklahoma City Thunders, and the Minnesota Timberwolves. Anthony Towns, Andrew Wiggins and Jimmy Butler. DO NOT SLEEP ON THE TIMBERWOLVES!! Oklahoma City Thunder has a big three of their own. Carmelo Anthony, Paul George, and Russell Westbrook. It is their first season so they are still trying to gel together. Wait till they get it going it is going to be a problem in the western conference. The Timberwolves are young and a good defensive team. They have good players that can take over the West in the future. They remind me of the Oklahoma City Thunders younger days with Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant.
That is the NBA Powerhouse. Let me know what you think in the comment below. Like, share, and comment. Alloy Of Life: The Juicy Fusions Of Life.
