    Does JVG really want to step into this situation? Yes, the Rockets are a playoff team. But, they are kinda stuck with what they got.

    Time to roll the dice with a new coach, not being back one that got fired after 3 seasons with the Rockets. I mean, I live him a commentator, but he had Yao and T-Mac and got eliminated in the first round of the playoffs in all 3 seasons with the Rockets.

    Please no, just no. JVG is a fossilized systems coach. He couldn’t do a fraction of what he did because of rule changes. Goodness sometimes we are at 80 by halftime NOT the finale score. Grinding it out with turnover prone players is not ideal. We go from one gimmick to the next. Your not with your ex for a reason. No, please no.

    Does this mean JVG as coach and Lue as assistant? Or vice versa?

    It means those are two options being considered for HC.

    JVG absolutely won't come back as an assistant and Ty Lue turned us down for an assistant job already once.

    I think JVG, the Rockets fan, would hate to for JVG, the broadcaster, to be JVG, the Rockets coach, because of the current ownership. Ty Lue wouldn't touch us unless he's getting paaaaaaid that's for certain.

    What kind of culture change would Lue bring? Just a Lebron puppet who would be a Harden/Morey puppet. Both Lue and LeBron got way too much credit for taking down a beat up Warriors team that the Thunder nearly took out at full strength and needed a Warriors exhausting comeback in the series to win. Much like the tale of Magic/Kareems stroll through the West to face a beat up and exhausted Celtics/Pistons/Sixers on a yearly basis.

    JVG would bring a culture change within the attitude of the team, but the true culture change is moving on from Morey. Without that move, what's the point? Could be D'Antoni or it could be any other coach. They're all just going to play the same way Morey has made the team play and lose in epic letdown for a long time now. Were essentially looking for a "get on your ass" motivator to replace "positive reinforcement" motivators. That's all the coaches are under Morey. Motivators.

    We need a whole cultural revolution so to speak. The days of the patients running the asylum needs to end. You play with no energy You sit that includes Harden. You turn it over you sit Westbrook, everyone need to be held accountable

    I don't know who should be the next coach. I don't have a favorite and I'm not educated enough to have an opinion.

    That said, JVG is a defensive-minded coach and, when the Rockets played well in the playoffs, it was because they made their small ball defense work exquisitely. When they weren't laser-focused on team defense, they faltered. So there's that.

    I can’t wait for his press conferences and seeing those bags under his eyes come back/the press showing up to Toyota center to find that he slept in the office and hasn’t put his shoes on yet.

    JVG would be adamant about not participating in any fixed games. He would curse out the league.
