@  cointurtlemoose : (28 March 2015 - 05:23 PM) Yeah that Toronto game we are gonna be thin in the frontcourt... luckily the Raptors wouldn't give us problems like some teams would in that regard
@  08huangj : (28 March 2015 - 01:23 PM) With Dwight Howard out for one of the back to backs, the Rockets are gonna have to start Dorsey with Capela as a backup unless they go small with Josh Smith.
@  08huangj : (28 March 2015 - 01:22 PM) Did somebody else get hurt tonight? The Rockets have now lost 3 starters in 4 games.(Not counting last night.)
@  jorgeaam : (28 March 2015 - 04:53 AM) Wow, Josh Smith nearly had a triple double tonight
@  Losthief : (27 March 2015 - 11:24 PM) DMO down now too....Capela with the team.
@  Mario Peña : (27 March 2015 - 08:51 PM) Unfortunately for Durant he is out for 4-6 months and will undergo a bone graft surgery. Tough break for him and hopefully he comes back 100% next year which could potentially be his last year in OKC.
@  Losthief : (27 March 2015 - 02:21 AM) I like Llull, first i heard about him actually willing to leave spain...had almost given up on the guy.
@  majik19 : (27 March 2015 - 02:18 AM) definitely gives us some Beverly insurance should he sign elsewhere (assuming Prigioni, Terry, and McDaniels are gone next year)
@  cointurtlemoose : (27 March 2015 - 12:08 AM) Also, this would be prettyyy cool... http://hoopshype.com...ll-to-join-team
@  cointurtlemoose : (27 March 2015 - 12:06 AM) I think McHale is properly rated. This season has probably boosted him to the middle of the back. Stotts should not be higher than Vogel and Stevens, who have squeezed every drop and more out of their rosters.
@  YaoMan : (26 March 2015 - 07:48 PM) @ txt - no I don't agree with the assessment simply because of how well McHale has handled all the injuries the Rockets had. If they feel that McHale didn't orchestrate that, then Harden should be a hands down MVP when the starting 5 misses more games than any other team in the West...
@  majik19 : (26 March 2015 - 07:18 PM) I was surprised they placed Kerr at 3. I know he's having a great year, but one year does not define a coaching career. People seem to forget he inherited a 50 win team.
@  txtdo1411 : (26 March 2015 - 07:13 PM) I was pretty surprised they had Stotts at 7 as well. He has done a good job with Portland, but health (last year, not so much this season) and talent have put him in a position to succeed.
@  txtdo1411 : (26 March 2015 - 06:31 PM) You think they are correct with that assessment YaoMan? I was actually a little surprised they had Casey and Stevens ahead of him. This year McHale has shown a lot more adaptability than people thought he had in him.
@  YaoMan : (26 March 2015 - 04:50 PM) Have you seen the ESPN coach ranking lately? They have McHale at slightly better than middle of the pack: http://espn.go.com/n...ngs-top-coaches
@  YaoMan : (26 March 2015 - 04:05 PM) If the Rox can stay focus, catching Memphis is definitely a strong reality...
@  Cooper : (26 March 2015 - 02:39 AM) ended up with a nice win and the grizz dropped a game.
@  08huangj : (26 March 2015 - 12:40 AM) The rockets look dead today
@  YaoMan : (25 March 2015 - 09:03 PM) Bev out at least 7-10 days...the rotation is starting to get very thin...hopefully they all come back when playoffs start...
@  Mario Peña : (25 March 2015 - 08:22 PM) Dwight back is great news but how he recovers from the 20 minutes he ends up getting tonight is what I'm holding my breath for.

Kade may move out of town on that note as bad as he hates morey :lol: this just proves that les is no dummy. he knows a good GM when he sees one. as important as any players we get (leadership at the top) is also part of the championship puzzle. we have a very good GM and too see him get extended means he has been given the keys to finish the rebuild project.............that's good news :)

I'm very happy with this move. Morey is one of the better GMs in the league, and I think most Houston fans appreciate his work. Can't wait to see what else is up his sleeve! lol

I know..........I would hate to be in a poker game with this guy. his greatest asset.... he has long term vision....something most GMs struggle with. it;s one thing to have a good plan, but the ability to carry it out even with the other GMs working against you can not be underestimated. if les truely did demand he continued winning while rebuilding he has done something very few GMs could pull off. especially considering the other GMs know exactly what he's trying to do. that alone (IMO) is worth a new deal.

I think Morey's done a good job the last 2 years. Before that, I don't know. But you win some, you lose some. But if he hadn't gotten Harden and lost out on Lin and Asik, I probably would be calling for his head. Results are what matter, and he has been on a hot streak lately and I hope he stays on one. The only criticism I had was the fact that we didn't get anything from Scola.

We did get something from Scola. We got out of his horrendous contract with no cap penalty.

5 mil / 6mil / 6.5 mil over 3 years is not a bad contract. It wasn't great for a rebuilding team, but for his production, it was about par. It was not a horrendous contract.

It is when that would put us equal to the cap at the moment, meaning Morey would have zero moves to make at the deadline. With the 6M in cap he might be able to pick up a second round pick while taking on a $6 million player from someone wanting to get under the luxury tax. Scola is an overachiever who is more liked by the fans then the talent evaluators. So to pay him to be on a western conference team that is rebuilding, and eating minutes that should be going to a younger player is money well spent.

one question..............what are scola stats for this year? in case you haven't noticed there has been a large dropoff in caliber of play. phoenix is looking to dump scola right now as we speak, but can't find anybody willing to take his contract. scola was a nice filler while rebuilding, but no longer fits with the direction we want to go. remember we tried to trade him ourselfs and found no takers. which means either waive him or allow him to eat cap room. remember we would not be having dicussions about cap flexibility if scola was still on our books.

Damn, Kade is 0/2 with only Coach McHale left in this thread. I seriously doubt Leslie Alexander and Daryl Morey are going to "fire" Coach McHale after just 1 strike shortened season and the second season with practically a completely new roster and oh yeah, some guy named Harden joininge Rockets AFTER the pre-season. My prediction thus is Kade will end up 0/3. Does anyone know how many practices the Rockets actually have during the regular season? Very, very few and the ones they have are important. Kind of hard to put in a complete new system once Harden joined the Rockets without much practice time. I think Coach McHale and his staff have done an outstanding job so far with the new roster et al.

I think the biggest problem most people have with him is that it seems like he's so inconsistent with his rotations. He's not at Coach Smart's level, but he's not that far off. That's the biggest reason people have issues with him.

not so my good friend......my beef with him is he does not know how to take advantage of mismatches during a game. that's why denver kills us everytime they play us. george karl uses mismatches in his favor and mc hale doesn't know how to counter. that far and away is my biggest beef. some hope he will learn on the fly, but I am of the mindset to bring in someone who already knows what he's doing not trying to learn. while I agree morey is the right man for his job, mc hale should be fired and a new better coach brought in.

Denver kills us because they're a better version of us with a lot less upside. That's what it comes down to.

Care to give us some specific examples? And the fact is that I don't believe in any coach out there being THAT much better than McHale that it's worth the hassle of firing him and going through the irritation of learning a new system in the middle of the season.

I don't think any of us want him fired in the middle of the season(with the exception of Kade). But you're right that there aren't many big name guys available. Phil's retired. Sloan is kind of old to relate to players(although we saw how much BETTER his system made D-Will and Boozer). Mike Brown would get our defense in order, but has severe offensive liabilities(I wouldn't mind them hiring him to be a d-coordinator, he's a great defensive mind). So, we would have to put our trust in Morey to find a better coach.

the only thing we have in common with denver is the pace at which we play. denver has no star they are built around players who are boederline stars. we on the other hand are built around a star(harden). as for coaches who could coach a ring around mc hale? either van gundy jeff or stan(even though getting stan would not be good for a howard run) nate mc millian and brian shaw just to name a few. fact is mc hale couldn't coach his way out of a paper bag with one end open and a knife in hand. this is the main reason the rockets can not close out close games. if you look at the wins we have very few are in close games because when the game slows in the last few minutes he is unable to get the team in position to execute set plays. we simply fall on harden to iso more often than not. he has no plays we can execute at the end of a quater, half or end of games. trust me their are plenty of options when it comes to coaches. i'm not saying we should make an in season move, but end of this year........yes. it's time to stop babysitting mc hale and get a real coach.
