With the Rockets very much in the middle of the Carmelo Anthony discussions, Rockets fans have been quick to get on the bandwagon to make such a move, believing that such a move would be exactly what the team needs to regain the glory of the championship years of the 1990's.
While Anthony would undoubtedly improve the team, the most prudent course of action for the Rockets right now is building through the NBA Draft. People talk about how this year is a weak draft, how some prospects will be scared off by labor uncertainty, and that young players are wild cards, and people who say these things are completely right.
There are no sure things in the draft. Some players, like Adam Morrison, completely bust even when many predict stardom, while others, like Rashard Lewis, succeed when not much is expected of them.
Still, given the current state of affairs in Houston, taking the uncertain course is the best choice. Read on and find out why.
