    Yep, it is starting to look more and more like it will be Jeff Van Gundy.

    JVG, Vogel, Messina all high quality candidates in my eyes. Would be intrigued by all three in different ways.

    I don't know why they even wanted to interview Kenny Smith in the first place if they focused on former head coaches and experience assistants.

    Him just automatically becoming a head coach was a stretch so this isn't shocking news.

    Great job of turning that job down Kenny. I didn't want you taking on that titanic. That's a turrible job. I'm glad you're staying here with us. &mdash; Charles

    Maybe their goal of interviewing Smith was to see if he would be interested in coming in as an assistant?

    The rally worked against Kenny. This was Les' reaction after seeing the people at the rally...

    What is this clown show? Are the rockets the baby mamma and Jonathan Feigen is Maury?

    Damn so next season TNT is going to go to another level of Rockets hate. Barkley, Kenny will be ganging up on us.

    Mentioned already, but I'm mentioning it again.

    This won't help with TNT. Our most Rocket-sympathetic member now gets to feel rejected.

    I miss the days when watching TNT's NBA coverage was great.
