Mychal Thompson believes the Houston Rockets should be taken seriously by the Golden State Warriors if they add Carmelo Anthony.

With all the major moves being made in the NBA this offseason, one team is ultimately going to rise as a potential contender to the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference. The Houston Rockets might be that team after they acquired Chris Paul. If they can get Carmelo Anthony too, then things might get interesting.

Mychal Thompson certainly seems to think it would be interesting if the Rockets are able to land Anthony to go with the rest of their roster. As TMZ caught up with Thompson, Klay’s dad told them the Rockets are a team to be taken seriously if they land Anthony.

“You add Carmelo Anthony to Chris Paul and James Harden, you gotta take them serious.” Thompson told TMZ.

In the interview with TMZ, Thompson still admits that the Warriors are a team to beat and brings up what a great thing that they have going currently for them in the bay area. Still though, he has a point that’s going to resonate among many.

The Rockets are considered a threat already by some and adding Anthony to the mix could potentially be huge. It’s easy to look at Carmelo in a negative light currently with the stench of the New York Knicks consuming him, but there’s a real chance on a team with superstars he can step in and make a huge impact immediately.

This is a discussion that is going to expand past just the Rockets. There are a lot of teams in the Western Conference that are making moves to try and knock off the Warriors. However, it’s going to take more than one or two superstars to likely get the job done.

Despite whether or not the Knicks intend to trade him, the Rockets landing Anthony would make things a lot more interesting. They might not be able to defeat Golden State when it’s all said and done, but they aren’t to be taken lightly as Thompson notes.
