    You will be sorely missed. And apparently, we lost to Portland because of you.

    Sources say he emphasized not contesting shots. So now that he's gone we'll improve substantially.

    He's a consummate professional. I hope he retires a Rocket.

    I guess he disagreed with McHale a few times, wanted him to expand his coaching script beyond "Play harder" "Don't let the ball get sticky" and "Stay with your man."

    He was just a fill-in. Wait till next year when the boom falls on McHale, Morey and Les.

    No Anthony, no Bosh, no "big" FA signing. Now who will they blame?

    It's cooper's fault. Mchale told him to assist harder.

    Didn't know you existed bro, but apparently we lost because of you. Sorry you were thrown under the bus by your colleagues. I wish you the best of luck.

    what a terrible scapegoat to pick.

    Sorry that he probably lost his job for a stupid reason.
