07:14 AM ET 09.19 | Houston GM Daryl Morey took the occasion of a radio appearance earlier this week to dole out an honest assessment of the Rockets after adding Dwight Howard. The NBA season is fast approaching and the Houston Rocket's GM has high hopes for the two time NBA Champion franchise for the 2013-2014 season. "I think there are probably at least three teams better than us if not more," Morey said. ... "I think it's hard to talk about 'hey we're one of the favorites to win the championship.' But I do think we go in with a chance, where as we haven't in the last few years." So, of those three or more teams ahead of the Rockets right now, who are they? Mike Meltser tossed out the Miami Heat, Oklahoma City Thunder and San Antonio Spurs to Morey. "I think those three, I would say going in for sure are better than us."

Even Morey has doubts about Howard

He's just being candid. It isn't about Howard. For all the Dwightmare, he is undoubtedly the best center in the league, period!

I think Rockets are a scoring wing player short. They do have 2 true centers that no other quality teams can boast of.

The Dwightmare better end for good this year.

Can't wait for the season to start. Too many uncertainties. The only thing that's given year in and year out is that the Spurs are always underrated but always manage to be in the top 3.

The fight between him and Holmes is still one of the greatest matches I've ever seen.

That would be nice, but I have a hunch this isn't over just yet. I could come back at the end of the season or next.

A fair assessment. Now get on the phone and make further improvements to your roster.

Houston rebuilt the team the old Lakers way, trades and free agency. Very different to how OKC and Cleveland are building their teams.

I don't think the Spurs are better this year.........
