He has been in Houston for multiple seasons now but this is likely going to be their worst season yet.
The team is currently dead last in the West with a painful 10-26 record.
They have also lost 8 of their last 9 games and are far, far from being ready to appear in the playoffs again.
This isn’t their first bad season: they ended last year also at the bottom of the West with a 20-62 record.
Eric Gordon asked about #Rockets improvement from when the season started:

Following the team’s latest loss, Gordon was asked about any improvement inside the Rockets.
He bluntly responded: “There’s no improvement.”
Gordon wasn’t holding back and told it like it is – and he was not wrong.
The Rockets really are in a bad way and it will take a lot to fix things and get them back on track.
Fans of the team shouldn’t expect a notable turnaround anytime soon.
Head coach Stephen Silas is trying his best and he has some legitimate young talent on the roster.
Still, the team just can’t keep up with other teams around the league.
That is why it’s so interesting to hear that James Harden is toying with the idea of returning to the Rockets if the rest of this season doesn’t work out as planned with the Philadelphia 76ers.
That would obviously greatly improve the team’s chances and they need literally all the help they can get right now.
