The Houston Rockets are closely studying the possibility of unseating the Golden State Warriors and beating the San Antonio Spurs for the top spot in the West. The front office thinks that James Harden, who is also one of the potential MVP candidates this season along with Stephen Curry, LeBron James and Russell Westbrook, would need another superstar-level player to help him carry the team to the NBA Finals. Among the possible stars in the league, it looks like a Seth Curry contract holds the best chance to achieve this goal.
The Seth Curry contract to the Dallas Mavericks last NBA season had been a sought after deal especially with his breakout performance with the Sacramento Kings - the type that then franchise player DeMarcus Cousins applauded publicly. However, many feel that the younger Curry might realize his potential in a better team particularly one that offers the possibility of letting him face Stephen Curry for the NBA playoffs.
Rumors are rife that a Seth Curry contract is seriously under consideration in the Houston Rockets. Despite the statements of the Dallas Mavericks pertaining to grooming the star to become the face of their franchise, fans think that James Harden and Eric Gordon could persuade him to compete at a higher level. Will he take that chance if offered?
"We'll see how cold-blooded we are, and it will come down to making good smart basketball plays in the right time with a lot of pressure -- and if we do that, we're as good as anybody, there's no doubt about it," said Houston Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni on facing the Golden State Warriors. "I don't think we fear anybody. We respect a lot of people, but we're a good team."
Signing a Seth Curry contract to the Houston Rockets could make the James Harden team a formidable shooting squad that could mimic the fast-paced plays of the Golden State Warriors. In addition, the younger Curry could eventually enjoy a more stable and reliable leadership with The Beard.
"I'm going to have [my teammates'] back and they know that they have mine as well. For the coaching staff and the fans, especially here in Houston, the front office, I'm here to play," shared James Harden of his dedication to the Houston Rockets.
