    Here's my for-dummies take on these coaches:

    Jeff Van Gundy - pros: disciplined defense, cons: iso offense
    Chris Finch - pros: Morey friendly cons: Morey friendly
    Mario Elie - pros: former Rocket cons: unproven
    Sam Cassell pros: former Rocket cons: unproven
    David Blatt - pros: playoff experience cons: personality of wet glue
    Luke Walton - pros: Warriors halo effect cons: is Luke Walton
    Ettore Messina - pros: excellent resume cons: NBA unproven
    Rick Adelman - pros: offense, cons: rigid coach, too much 'dog house'

    I'd prefer a modern day multi dimensional, versatile, coach. One who can use spreadsheets and advanced analytics, shove a philosophy down the throats, GM, twitter, play ping pong etc

    I'd prefer an all in one coach

    sorry, i prefer the individual threads. it promotes deeper dives on the candidates and also acts a fan pulse for the busier candidate threads.

    If we lose JVG to the Lakers because the refs made a wrong call (which cause us a win), I'm going to blame the NBA refs - again!

    Derek Fisher..

    Really. He's an ass, and avoided Houston like the plague as a player. Besides, he would try to date an ex-wife of one of our players.
