Rival Execs Give Rockets Legitimate Chance Of Signing LeBron James

The Houston Rockets are the best team in the National Basketball Association at the moment. It was the most hard contest the team has faced since Paul's return from a knee injury, but in the end, they made it look easy and extended their nine-game winning streak. Their defense is markedly improved this season. James Harden is the NBA's leading MVP candidate, and since returning to the lineup, Chris Paul has made an impressive and seamless transition into the Rockets' rotation.

LeBron James will be a free agent this summer and though he's staying mum about his future, rival executives believe that the Rockets could sign the three-time champion, according to USA Today. Paul and James are close friends, while Harden played with James during the 2012 Olympics.

Now, Houston seeks to keep their momentum going in the month of December, as the Rockets have a chance to extend their lead atop of the Western Conference standings.

More importantly, though, James prioritizes winning above all else.

If there were any doubts about how the Rockets will perform when a team plays up to their level and they can't blow them out, Saturday's performance went a long way toward answering them.
