    I don't really care, just thought I would vote for the least likely candidate.

    I'm just glad the ones I didn't want are out of the picture. I wonder how stable McHale is, he also would be the less popular choice but I can't say I'm against it.

    I don't want any of them, but I really don't think a coaching change is going to make much difference.

    Kevin McHale would help us appeal to teens.

    None of the above. "Good" thing is, whoever it is, they'll be fired in 4 years(or less):p

    I'm predicting Lawrence Frank will be the next Rockets coach, and I probably just jinxed him.

    I hope they get McHale. We need to be as bad as possible next year, the 2012 Draft is to loaded to have another middle of the road season's.

    I want McHale, I think he can bring in a star better than the others!

    I want to see what Dwane Casey can do as a true head coach, so I'd be 100% for bringing him in.

    However, I wouldn't be totally against making Lawrence Frank the new head coach either.

    Kevin McHale... no thanks.

    Why not Frank? He seems like a good fit

    You've pretty much summed up my thoughts as well; Dwayne Casey sounds like a pretty darned good option.

    Frank? Well....he could be good, but I have an uneasy feeling about him. Hard to quite put my finger on it why I feel that way, I just do.

    Kevin McHale? Great player, not-so-great coach. I'll pass.

    for me its frank or casey.

    if its frank, i'd want an old timer put on his staff for experience purposes. maybe john lucas?

    if its casey i'd want a future successor being trained under him. casey may be an assistant, but he's 53 and thats no spring chicken, even by coaching standards. either elie or cassell should work fine.

    Casey, the NBA lifer just might strike the perfect balance with DM the GM.

    And I could definitely see ET on his staff.

    I am surprised so many people want Frank.

    The guy was a failure as coach and had a pretty good shot at it (6.5 years. SIX AND A HALF FREAKING YEARS).
