PASADENA Like a lot of people paid to follow the NBA, Jalen Rose believes the Warriors are overwhelming favorites to repeat as champions. But if there's any team that has a legitimate chance to dethrone them, it's the Houston Rockets. Rose, who dropped by the TV critics press tour to promote ESPN's upcoming morning show, “Get Up,” likes what the Rockets have done to improve their postseason chances. “They have a true MVP candidate in James Harden. You add an all-star in Chris Paul, who has been fantastic so far,” he said after appearing in a media conference. “They can shoot the '3' with Eric Gordon and Ryan Anderson. They can be physical and play defense with P.J. Tucker and Luc Mbah a Moute.
