Many would argue that they have the best 2 and 5 in the league (Harden and Howard) as well as the best defensive player in the league (Howard) - I personally wouldn't, but some would.
Other than that, they have a handful of really good roleplayers in Lin, Asik, Beverly, Jones, Parsons, Casspi, Brewer, Motiejunas, Camby, Garcia and Greg Smith. Incredibly, only Lin and Asik are being paid more than the minimum.
So in addition to having good guys, they're not paying tax and they have a good chance of making another move with some of their pieces.
I hate that [expletive] and hope they lose every game. In addition to rooting for the lakers, I now root for anyone playing Houston. [expletive] 'em.
