Eric Gordon shared his thoughts on what the Houston Rockets need to do to become title contenders in 2021.

According to the veteran guard/forward of the Rockets, the team needs chemistry, not a rebuild.

“The chemistry could be better. For us, we made a lot of change last year. We went small ball halfway through the season. [But] in the playoffs, it’s all about matchup.

We’ve just got to be able to rally around the same group of guys, and build on more chemistry, and try to get better. Try to utilize everybody to play at their best.

I think that’s going to make us better, in the long haul. I don’t think they’re going to rebuild this team. This team is good. I don’t care what a lot of people say, it doesn’t matter.

Injuries and whatnot, we’ve seen it all here. We still win 50+ games, and we’re still going to be right there in the playoffs,” Gordon said on The Ashley Nevel Show, via the Rockets Wire.

Gordon and the Rockets got eliminated by the Los Angeles Lakers in the second round of the 2020 NBA playoffs.

Houston now is in search for a new head coach, after the decision of Mike D’Antoni to part ways with the team.
