    Transparency is needed.
    I still don’t know his status of extension. It doesn’t need 2 weeks,

    He looked greater when he had his mustache. Mike reportedly lost a bet with his wife. I wonder what she would have shaved had he won? ;)

    Would love to see Capela run some of those David Lee sets. He needs to be given more responsibility and forced to get better, otherwise he'll stay fat and happy as a rim running inflated asset.

    If he doesn't show any more ability to improve or get better, than he is instantly tradeable.

    People wanna talk about trading Capela but the most efficient route would be if he just got better. The kid has all the tools to be much better than he, need to see a leap from him next year.

    Congratulations on being the only one in this thread to actually watch the video LOL. Dudes just make comments without having any knowledge at all.

    He had some nice ideas and a style kind of new to the NBA in 2000s, but that’s it. He’s a good coach but unfortunately has not enough adjusting abilities and is too stubborn / set in his ways somehow. Loyal to a fault too.

    Great coaches in my opinion know how to adapt, trust their bench and aren’t afraid to play whomever is capable regardless of being a star player or not. For all the flaws McHale had, he gave Troy Daniels playing time that won us a game in the playoffs and benched Harden during a do-or-die game. Both would never happen under MDA.
