Texas Congressman Kevin Brady: Rockets Can Win Title Without LeBron James

In an interview with TMZ Sports, the Texas representative discussed LeBron and the Rockets’ championship prospects:
“This is a winning team already. They got a winning culture,” Brady said. “This is gonna be a championship team in my view, with or without him, but he can play a role. So, if he wants to come, I’ll tell you what, people would love him.”
The Rockets enjoyed their best regular season in franchise history in 2017-18, as they led the NBA with a 65-17 record.
Houston then pushed the eventual NBA champion Golden State Warriors to seven games in the Western Conference Finals before getting eliminated.
The Rockets already have a strong core in place provided they can keep their top players in free agency.
LeBron and the Cavs only toppled the Warriors once in the Finals over the past four seasons, however.
With James receiving little help from his supporting cast in 2017-18, it has increased speculation that he intends to sign elsewhere during the offseason.
