Championships build legacies
For Harden, Paul, D’Antoni, title can confer greatness.
This could last four rounds and take two months. What began Sunday at Toyota Center might endure until June 17 for Game 7 of the NBA Finals back in downtown Houston.
Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, Steve Kerr and the superteam Warriors could finally be overcome. King James’ Cavaliers, the 59-win Raptors and Russell “Triple-Dou- ble” Westbrook might fall as the best regular-season team in Rockets history follows up the Astros’ 2017 World Series championship with Houston’s first NBA title since 1995.
But no matter how far these 65-win Rockets go, one word defines this run: legacy. Win it all and it’ll come down to legacies. Legacy.
