Carmelo Anthony flat out said he's confident he'll be playing for the Houston Rockets next season. Melo joining forces with Chris Paul and James Harden in Houston would be the NBA's latest super team and a super team filled with half of the famous banana boat. The Rockets have a very deep and great scoring bench, I'm sure they'd have to sacrifice some of those players to bring in Melo for financial reasons, but still they'll have more talent than the Warriors do coming off the bench. In today's NBA everything should be compared to the Warriors because they're the ones with the target on their backs. They're the team you need to take down if you want to be a champion in this league, no on else is gonna do it for them, so every teams goal right now when building their roster is how can we beat the Warriors. It's no an easy task either.
Golden State has 4 superstars compared to the typical 3 superstar model that has been going on for generations, giving Golden State that extra edge that is so hard to overcome. The fact that they also have 2 top 5 players in the league also gives them an unfair advantage. Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony, and James Harden sounds like it could give Golden State a lot of trouble, but would they really. Maybe 3 years ago when Melo and CP3 were at the height of their careers, but now I really can't see it happening. These guys all love having the ball in their possession on offense whereas Golden State loves to move the ball. That's my biggest problem with what the Rockets are doing, ball movement is key, and a team with Harden, Melo, and CP3 doesn't sound like a ton of ball movement. Who knows, maybe CP3 will be able to mesh it all together and make it work, he'd be the guy if anyone could do it to do that, so there is still some hope for Houston having success against the Warriors even if its slim.
