Can a "starless" team compete? Rockets fans hope so. (and apparently Yao only counts as a part time star now)
Too often has the adage of "stars win in the NBA" panned out. Suddenly, nobody thinks that a starless team can compete. And for a starless team, the Rockets are very, very talented. Depth is nothing to be ashamed about, especially in a situation where Yao will need plenty of others to step up. Let's make one thing clear, as well: nothing about this roster or rotation is permanent. Once the second half of the season approaches, we'll have a better idea of what actions will need to be taken to make a West title run. Thankfully, the Rockets have enough assets and depth to be picky.
