Well... Who stays? (Goran Dragic vs. Kyle Lowry part 2)

Basically Lowry says he won't play for McHale next year.

IMO, keeping a coach and philosophy in place is more important than one player, even if that's our best player. If you remember back to the start of the season, players were saying that it was taking them some time to learn the new terminology McHale brought with him to the job. That was particularly an issue given the lockout, but there's still going to be the same effect if you bring in another coach. Even given the high personnel turnover of the Rockets, there are still going to be a lot of players around from year to year, and they're going to be able to build on what we did last year instead of starting from scratch.

A big thanks to Rahat for making us aware of the situation earlier,when everyone else was downplaying it.

If the reports are all true, that there are several other players and agents that are complaining about McHale(not including Martin/Dalembert-they don't need to return anyways), then maybe McHale is the one that needs to leave. There are several quality coaches on the market these days, and I'd have to say Houston is a better job than Charlotte, maybe than Orlando as well if Dwight is gone and theyre stuck with high priced mid level talent.

Furthermore, I don't believe Lowry is the best player on this team, the best player has always been Scola. Luis is a leader, is dependable, productive, plays better defense than most fans understand, sacrifices his game for the team and has been a champion on many levels of basketball.
Lastly and most importantly, Dragic needs to be signed up long term. He has paid his dues behind Nash and Lowry and I am sure he learned a lot about the game as well as some lessons in maturity. He is ready for his own team both skillwise and mentally. Dragic has a ceiling on the court and a respect for team that Lowry will never have.

It's sad because of what Lowry used to mean to the team but it has happened. It is up to McHale to do something with the players he has. Let's all hope McHale isn't Doug Collins 2.0. Young players need coaching not constant nit picking.

Regarding Dragic, we need to sign him to a mutually acceptable contract. Once that is accomplished, Lowry and Martin must be shopped for the best available players that can help the Rockets improve. I am less than convinced that Lee is enough at SG, so even he remains a question in my mind.
One thing is for sure, I don't want to see Lowry traded for less than his real value. He is a productive player when healthy, and has a reasonable contract. Somebody will step up to get him if we are patient and let the open market do its' thing.

Kyle plays with passion, but he has been showing major signs of enitlement issues, and frankly he was beaten out by a bigger, quicker, more athletic player, and he doesn't like it.
It is Aaron Brooks part 2.....
Time to trade Kyle and sign Goran.
