How are we setting our expecations too high?
We have the best SG in the NBA and the best Center in the NBA. Yes Kobe is better career-wise, but if you were starting a franchise today and had to pick a sg and C it would be Dwight and James.
We're blessed to have 2 of the best 7 or 8 players in the game and hopefully this time they can stay healthy unlike T-Mac and Yao. If they do, all those Ray Allen,Shane Battier type veterans that want to chase a ring will come here bc as great as Lebron is, Wade is regressing and Bosh just had 0 points in game 7.
Houston just added a significant piece and has a GM whose proven time and time again he can draft as well as anyone in the league, minus Marcus Morris and Royce White, he's pulled gems like Carl Landry and Chandler Parsons in the second round, he's traded garbage like Spanoulis for a guy like Luis Scola, he traded trash like rafer alston for Kyle Lowry, and finally he dumped Kevin Martin,Jeremy Lamb, and Steven Adams for James Harden.
Having those 2 superstars and the best GM in the game is a dangerous combo, Houston just became a destination city for free agents looking to win.
