The Rockets already made waves during the offseason with the addition of star point guard Chris Paul, and they may not be done.
With rumors swirling of Carmelo Anthony possibly joining Paul and James Harden in Houston, Klay Thompson's father Mychal thinks the West can be much different for the Warriors if the move happens.
"They'll be a serious threat to the Warriors," Thompson said when TMZ tracked him down. "You add Carmelo Anthony to Chris Paul and James Harden and you gotta take them serious."
Though the elder Thompson belives the Rockets would be a new threat to the Warriors with Anthony, that doesn't mean he thinks there would be a new champion in the NBA.
"Anybody can beat anybody, but the Warriors are still the favorites," Thompson added. "Those guys, they just know what it takes to win. They've got something special up in Oakland."
Anthony, 33, averaged 22.4 points and 5.9 rebounds per game in 74 games with the Knicks in the 2016-17 season.
