    I like Hubie Brown and I think he's a brilliant coach (I love the Memphis 10+ man rotations) but he can't physically handle an NBA coaching job anymore, training camp + 82 games, 41 on the road + playoffs.

    He could probably come on board as a consultant or adviser or some sort of assistant.

    But I'm sure McHale wouldn't really like being coached how to coach, if you know what I mean.

    Never, he's the best commentator out there, he should do the Finals instead of that biased JVG. What's up with the dumb random coach suggestion threads lately?? We have McHale and he's not going anywhere..

    of course age is a factor. that's why he isnt coaching anymore. the heat could fire spolstra right now and offer it to hubie. he wouldnt take it.

    Of all the coaches available ... the list should start with George Karl, then maybe Jerry Sloan ... I hate to say it considering Rockets history against those 2 coaches but well they are pretty awesome coaches. I wonder if we could get both of the Gundy Brothers to coach one team ? lol ... thats a joke.

    I wouldnt have Hubie Brown in my top 5 choices. I rather give someone young like Kidd a chance or stick with proven winners that can be with the franchise for atleast 5 years to build upon yearly progress with our young squad.

    McHale has already worked out, don't understand the logic.

    He took the youngest, most inexperienced and almost completely re-hauled roster to the playoffs all while dealing with the death of his daughter. Don't know what more could be asked of him.

    He has the respect of players throughout the league and did a great job of recruiting Dwight

    Correct. What's the problem here??? The Rockets are not doing good enough?? The Rockets had a roster that on paper should have been deep in the lottery. The team made it to the playoffs. Not only made it, but played the type of BB that everybody wants to watch. Look at the Lakers. They had Dwight (and a couple of other scrubs) and just merely made it to the playoffs. Now the Rockets have Dwight and let's see how that turns out for the team this season. It's going to be easy to evaluate Kevin McHale against the reference point in last years Lakers. Let Kevin McHale work and we'll have a look at the results. Then again, if you are a Laker fan, you might not want him to stay.

    Just wow. You're seriously underestimating how physically taxing even coaching in the nba is.

    Hubie is now ancient. He was ancient during his last stop in the NBA.

    1. Kevin McHale did an outstanding job last season.
    2. One of the reasons D12 is here is for Kevin McHale.
    3. All of the players love him.

    Stupid thread equalls 1 star.

    though i think we should have had more victories last season had it not been for sticky balls,but it would be stupid to even think about wacking coach mchale. he is growing as a head coach.
