    That would require MDA to actually consider expanding outside of a 7 man rotation and possible develop players like House & And Ponds

    Ain’t gonna happen

    I'd be happy enough with better clock management.

    I believe MDA is a Lame duck coach, Harden, Tilman and Morey are calling the shots. Morey already confirmed they will do it per, bleacher report. Im all for it.

    D'Antoni has played 10-11 guys in the regular season. It's the playoffs where he tightens to 6.5. But he still really rides the starters, for sure.

    unfortunately we aren't deep enough for load management.

    my preferred mpg for our top 8 is: russ (32), harden (32), ego (28), tucker (28), capela (30), rivers (24), house (18), chandler (12)

    that leaves 36mpg remaining. so ideally we'd have a SG and a PF who are worth playing 18mpg each. I don't consider green, Mclemore, clark, or Bennet guarantees to earn those minutes at all.

    instead, I think we're going to see our guys play too many minutes again. my prediction for actual mpg is: russ (36), harden (36), ego (32), tucker (34), capela (30), rivers (28), house (28), chandler (16)

    Another opportunity to bust on my homie Mike D’Antoni... this place is becoming such bullshit. @heypartner , @Clutch , a lot of the true lovers of our team have stopped posting. Thank god for @hakeem94 and @DreamShook .. they keep me sane. @Os Trigonum @Deckard @Plowman and a handful of others too. Thank you for remaining real amongst the filth. (Yes I probably missed many of you. You’re appreciated too.)

    Yeah, but that 6.5 includes that one guy who gets in for 2 or 3 minutes, then gets yanked, never to return.

    True, D'Antoni in the playoffs goes in fully risk-averse.

    Can we fault a guy for pulling the players who aren’t helping us win? Maybe MDmA should coach guys up during practice, but pulling them isn’t bad coaching. It’s telling them to play the way he wants them to. They’re all pros. They should be held accountable.

    (I should have tagged you in my post above. @xaos and @Roc Paint too)

    dw, D'antoni will still play our guys 40min+ if the game is close.

    There will only be "load management" in blowouts.

    Agreed. The negativity has become tiresome. A lot of these people dont even seem to be Rockets fans!

    He gets scared in the playoffs, one of the reasons why he hasn't won jack, despite having a great players for most of his career.

    Please so we don't have to hear about how JH13 faded down the stretch, again bc he was too tired from chasing the MVP and big booty hoes.

    I keep telling my brother load management is not the solution, it was getting them a second superstar. Now they have him.eans harden only has to do 50 percent of the work all season...bam load had been managed. That was my only problem, I always complained about him having to do everything. Now he doesnt. I dont think taking games off is a good idea. I'm against it

    But if they must do this, I kind of would pick up Jeremy Lin, cause atleast I would trust him n Austin the days one James and or russ dont play. Cause u could move Austin to the starter spot when one is resting n have lin fill the Austin bench role. But what do I know. I just watch basketball 24/7 lol
