UPDATE: 1:25pm -- Here's video of McHale talking after the press conference.

http://rockets.clutchfans.net/1615/k...erence-videos/



This was probably the funniest part of the press conference. I'll have a few more videos up ... about 7+ minutes of McHale after it was over.

Les was like the **** that's affecting my profit margin. Morey is like "lol, this guy has no idea what pile of **** he just stepped in."

All this team is missing is a super prospect for me to be super excited about the future... but for now I'm mildly excited. I like McHale.

I strongly suspect that Les wants a coach who'll give safer interviews to the media, which might explain his sour reaction to the joke.

I like McHale - find him amusing and he was a hell of a player, but I'm still skeptical that he can make it happen as a coach. I would love to be wrong though. Hopefully he gets the right assistant coaches around him to take some of the in game pressure off him because right now, I'm scared that he is not going to the be the master tactician that the games best coaches are(and Adelamn is in that group).

And in this press conference, McHale is talking about being a player, Morey is talking about stats, and Les is talking about businesss

Wait, no they aren't.

Talk about players winning you over? Martin went out of his way to praise you.

Thats all nice. Kevin and I have talked. My job is to make them the best they can be. Sometimes easy, sometimes not so easy where you get push back. Everyone will have to find their role. I'd be lying to say everything will be rosy from the first day on. I told them all: we're gonna work hard. I've never had a problem coaching anyone yet. I'll tell them the truth and how I see things. No BS, all straight forward.

Challenges of motivating?

Thats my job to motivate them. If they arent motivated, they can sit right by me. If you're sitting by me, you dont make many mistakes. My HS coach told me that. I was throwing the ball all over the gym. He said, know why you're sitting by me? I said no. He said you cant throw the ball all over the gym, you're sitting by me. I thought about it for awhile, I liked to play, so I stopped throwing the ball all over the gym. You use the bench, thats what you use. You used the bench back then. If you're playing like a dog, you sat next to the coach. If you were playing good, you played. That hasnt changed and will always be the case. Its your job to motivate them and get them ready to play. I take pride in that. I take pride that teams I coached always played hard. If you dont play hard, you sit next to me. I'd rather lose with guys playing hard than with more talented guys giving me sideways, halfway effort.

I listened to the radio coverage and didn't get the impression that Les was annoyed or anything. Seems like he just wanted to point out that it's not gonna be the dictatorship of Daryl or even a divided rule where McHale and Daryl run totally separate operations. He's been big on collaboration between the coaching staff and the fron office.
