    To each their own, but we already knew the interest was there so depending on what cyberx means it’s either just like the news a while back and nothing much to see here or it’s really scary news lol

    Same bro, as guy who was a fan of those Suns teams back in the day(with Nash) I would really really REALLY hate to see history repeat itself with Dantoni and Harden. Im already disappointed with Cp being where he is.

    But hopefully we get this ring. I believe if Harden and Russ put it together, we have a guaranteed championship.

    Whatever his short comings, MDA has coached the Rockets to what should have been a title over GS....were it not for the League office. (in spite of the CP3 injury) As much as I hate to say it, The Warriors are one of the greatest teams of all time. And, you're going to diss the guy that's put us right there with them each year?!? Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater.

    Well for one thing it cost the Rockets higher quality assistant coaches. Instead we were stuck with mediocrity.

    If 4-5 million dollars is enough for Tillman to hurt the product on the court, then he needs to sell the team.

    That is not a good way to evaluate anything. So James Harden is a choker cause he hasnt won a chip yet? Same deal, it aint like that.
    Look man if Clutch, Ben, AND Daryl(well referencing) have vouched for him than I dont see any reason to call him a fraud. Information is fluid in the NBA, just because something doesnt materialize right in front of your face, doesn't mean it hasn't happend or wasnt discussed.

    I don't see what's wrong with this. Sometimes you should change coaches if players are tuning them out and messages aren't being relayed well. MDA is a great coach but he's not without his failings. Everyone complains about his short rotations and playing Harden ridiculous minutes even in blowouts. And the fact that he couldn't control the Harden/CP3 chemistry troubles this past season is a major demerit in my view.

    Whatever issues Lue may have, for some reason players do like him and he can probably smooth out the egos of Westbrook and Harden.

    That would be a mistake. MDA is not Milkhair.

    Maybe Cyberex meant to say the Rockets were high on ludes not Lue.

    I've been saying he would be a great fit:

    • championship coach / respect from players
    • former player / respect from players
    • proved he has the game management to get over the top
    • proved he has the player management to handle impossible personalities (Kyrie and lebron)
