My original pick to win the finals, Houston is already looking in solid shape to prove me right. Superstar SG James Harden could probably single-handedly carry this team, but the fact that two-way force C Dwight Howard is finally healthy doesn’t hurt either. Add in a deep bench and some nice complementary pieces: SF Trevor Ariza and PF/SF Josh Smith, and you have a title team. The road is hard, yes, but Harden is perhaps the best player in basketball, and couldn't be surrounded by players that better fit his talents. If everything is clicking and the offense runs smoothly through Harden, and if Howard is able to anchor the defense nicely, a title is well within reach for the Rockets.
