Ty Lawson is ecstatic about joining the Houston Rockets, and believes he’s the missing link to a championship run.

“I was like before I even came to the team I was talking to James (Harden),” Lawson said, via Fox News 26’s Marc Berman. “I was like ‘man get me over there.’ I’ll be that piece to (help) get over the hump. It’s definitely a breath of fresh air.”

Lawson was cut by the Nuggets after getting his second DUI in less than six months. Ty believes he can take the burden and pressure off of James Harden and Dwight Howard.

“I feel like last year watching the playoffs, they definitely need another playmaker,” Lawson said. “You could tell James got a little bit tired. He had to come down and score and make passes every time on the court. So I just want to relieve a little bit of pressure for him the best way I can.”

Rockets guard James Harden said at his basketball camp last month he spent some time with Lawson in California, and has no concerns about Ty’s off-the-court issues.
