@  majik19 : (21 May 2016 - 05:28 PM) no need to rush it now - only one other opening to compete with, and no first round draft pick to get input on.
@  Mario Peña : (21 May 2016 - 02:19 PM) SteinyMo reporting James Borrego from Pop's bench is now getting a look. Wow just wow.
@  majik19 : (20 May 2016 - 09:32 PM) I saw that report. Silas seems like a swing for the fences move, but isn't he exactly like JBB? Harden didn't respond to JBB, why would he respond to another longtime coach's son?
@  Mario Peña : (20 May 2016 - 07:29 PM) So Watkins is reporting its between D'Antoni and Silas.
@  Mario Peña : (20 May 2016 - 06:30 PM) In retrospect some of what has happened over the last few years going back to Lin, McHale and maybe a few other things seem to have Alexander's fingerprints on them and even if true to an extant that's troubling to me. Just when I thought things couldn't be worse, oh well.
@  thejohnnygold : (20 May 2016 - 04:58 PM) If so, this site will become more of a support group than a fan board.
@  slick shoes : (20 May 2016 - 03:14 PM) Is Les becoming the next Jerry Jones? Yikes...
@  majik19 : (20 May 2016 - 02:59 PM) oh i was half-joking haha.
@  slick shoes : (20 May 2016 - 12:21 PM) @majik19 Why screw the team long term with a decision that only affects them THIS season? I don't get it. If I was Morey and my boss kept over ruling my decisions, I'd give some serious consideration to stepping down.
@  majik19 : (20 May 2016 - 05:12 AM) @slickshoes - maybe thats why theyre considering D'Antoni - just want to make sure Dwight opts out.
@  thejohnnygold : (19 May 2016 - 04:38 PM) I think I have a bias against Rambis from his playing days. The thought of him being our coach just feels wrong...
@  slick shoes : (19 May 2016 - 03:11 AM) Does this mean Rambis is available?!
@  Mario Peña : (19 May 2016 - 03:05 AM) Hornacek goes to the Knicks.
@  slick shoes : (18 May 2016 - 11:05 PM) Who was the coach of the Los Angeles Lakers in 2014 when Dwight left to come to Houston? None other than Mike D'Antoni.
@  Cooper : (18 May 2016 - 08:16 PM) very uninspiring if they do go with him.
@  thenit : (18 May 2016 - 07:13 PM) It will be so much fun having game totaling 250+ points. Oh and we won't win anything either
@  slick shoes : (18 May 2016 - 12:19 PM) @majik19: the story also said that if they hire D'Antoni there will be a defensive specialist as an associate head coach. does this send a message to the team? defense comes second?
@  Sir Thursday : (18 May 2016 - 10:41 AM) @majik19: Seems sensible to consider him, at least. When you come down to making a decision you want to be able to make a choice between very different options, and I think D'Antoni is that. I'd hope at the end of the day the Rockets brain trust picks someone else, but seems fine to have him on the shortlist.
@  majik19 : (18 May 2016 - 03:41 AM) i got a notification from ESPN saying D'Antoni got a second interview and is a serious candidate... Morey must really not care about defense.
@  slick shoes : (16 May 2016 - 08:29 PM) "Source said Kenny Smith was informed he will not coach the Houston Rockets. The team is in the process of getting to the finalist stage."

whew!

    Rahat, the 2nd seed is a collapse?

    Easy to say in hindsight.

      Yes!!! It's my birthday, 3.30 am and I'm so pumped up with this, I can't even go to sleep right now. We got our best case scenario, even though I would prefer portland in the first round, being able to avoid the warriors until the WCF is better. Now let's win one against the Mavs!

      At 56-26, Houston is tied with the Clippers for 3rd best record in the league.  Only the Hawks and Warriors posted better.  Entering the post season with a front court that, even without D-Mo, is healthier than it has been all season has me feeling all kinds of good.

       

      I'm cracking open a beer.  Cheers to Houston--the team, the city, and the fans.  Cheers to all of you as well.  We are often an odd and dysfunctional group, but in our own way we are family.  Looking forward to enjoying the second part of the season with you all.  :wub:

        Logically, objectively, Harden really deserves the MVP.

        Then again, in sports, it's rarely logic. It's "the feels".

          Not quite. The BCS would have been the Grizzlies to lose and get the 6th seed so that the Warriors would have been eliminated by the Spurs in the semifinals. Now we have to deal with 7 games of hack-a-whoever on the semifinals to beat the Spurs.

            Wasn't expecting the grizzlies to lose yesterday with seeding on the line. You're right, but for me the realistic scenario was spurs, rockets and memphis wins yesterday. Since one of them didn't happen, I was a little bit too excited and didn't even think about that :lol:

              We got the 2 seed! I want to see Chandler Parsons cry!


              Exactly! Seeing Cuban cry would be a close second!
