Houston Rockets: 3 Reasons Kevin McHale and His Young Team Will Stun the League
Thomas Campbell-US PRESSWIRE
McHale leads a young and talented Rockets team that plenty of experts are sleeping on.

Kevin McHale's post-playing career is defined by two moves involving fellow Kevins: Trading Kevin Garnett and acquiring Kevin Love.  That will change this year—when he'll shock the basketball world by coaching a young Houston Rockets team into the playoffs.

With the Houston Texans barreling through the regular season, the Rockets have their work cut out for them if they hope to reclaim their town.   

They started with the back pages, paying a premium to take part in Linsanity when they signed PG Jeremy Lin to a $25 million offer sheet.  They also brought in a new starting center, former Bull Omer Asik. 

Now we'll see how well those moves translate to success on the court.

No one's expecting much from the Rockets this season, but there's a few reasons Houston fans should be optimistic for a surprise performance from an upstart young team in 2012.  Let's take a look at why the Rockets may be dark-horse contenders this year behind McHale.
