Houston Rockets 2021/2022 Season Preview – Houston, We have a Problem
Bad Men, Bad Takes – Season 1, Episode 26
The Rockets project as being one of the worst teams in the NBA this season, in large part due to a massive roster overhaul during last season and their young talent not being ready to help propel the team up the standings.
If you ask BMBT’s resident Houston fan Hunter though, he’ll tell you there is more than enough reasons to watch this team despite the lack of win’s they’ll likely tally.
“Are you telling me this team isn’t better than the Spurs or Oklahoma?”, he said. “This team has Jalen Green – a guy who is going to take home Rookie of The Year. This team has Kevin Porter Jr, a guy who dropped 50 last season even when everyone said he couldn’t be helped. This is a better team than people think”.

Despite Hunter’s enthusiasm and optimism, Rob and Ben remained steadfast in their view that watching Rockets game this season will be a grind.
“I’m watching these games in the pre-season, and maybe it’s because the team is young and haven’t had much time together, but Silas’ offensive scheme kind of look snon-existant”, said Rob.
“It’s as if the scheme is let Porter Jr and Green try to isolate and penetrate for 18 seconds, then if that doesn’t work, find (Christian) Wood and let him try to score. That’s it”, Ben agreed.
