Bigger things. Much bigger things.
That's what's in store for the Houston Rockets going forward, but they'll still need to play their cards right to hit the jackpot.
Already guaranteed to be media darlings the minute they stole Jeremy Lin in free agency from the New York Knicks, then heisted James Harden via trade from the Oklahoma City Thunder, the Rockets more than delivered on the hype.
Playing an infectious brand of run-and-gun, shoot first, second and third basketball, the youngling Rockets were fun to watch and even better to root for.
That they recently took the wounded Oklahoma City Thunder to the brink of a seven-game NBA playoffs series before falling 4-2 in the first round was just icing on the cake.
Heading into the offseason, Houston is young, talented, flush with cash and trade assets and poised to make the proverbial leap into real contender status before you know it.
Don't blink, and hopefully they won't either.
