    Feigen goes on vacation.:p Haha no I dont know.

    Wrote a blog on it this morning. Got the 3 final candidates, blah, blah, blah. His guess is it's Casey. If so, we're still in for a wait. Not that there is a rush or should be a rush.

    [rquoter]I can’t really predict who among the three finalists will emerge as the next Rockets coach. In a list with Lawrence Frank, Dwane Casey and Kevin McHale, one name does not seem to belong with the others. Frank and Casey are long-serving assistant coaches now running the defensive end for the Celtics and Mavericks, respectively. Since his Hall of Fame career, most of McHale’s time was in the front office.

    Daryl Morey knows him well. They worked together on those joint predraft workouts for several years. He would not be wasting McHale’s time if he was not interested, but it seems strange to have Frank and Casey as finalists for the same job as McHale, who interviewed with Morey on Tuesday. Between Frank and Casey, it is difficult to pick a favorite. Both are greatly respected around the league. Casey might have more player development time in his career so if I have to pick a favorite, I’d guess it would be Casey.[/rquoter]​

    Where is the Mike Brown option? His team won 60+ games, he deserves a chance.

    Brown is not a final candidate for the job.

    Brown rejected the Rockets.

    McHale now the latest to be interviewed. Is there still more cadidates left?

    Lakers, Warriors have been searching for a coach too and teams like Detroit, Pacers, Minnesota and kings could be looking soon as well.

    We must take our chances as soon as the offseason begin (or Mavs lost the WCFs) and sign Dwane Casey and JVG as an Assistant coach

    The coach really doesn't matter but he needs to be willing to give guys a chance to shine. I know we have play makers on this team that just need some minutes to get loose and rick wouldn't really give those guys a shot.

    Hmmmmmmm.


    Maybe it's McHale, assistant GM (in a role similar to CD working with Morey and developing our bigs) and Casey Head Coach, with John Lucas as one of the assistant head coaches?

    SI: Rockets, Warriors, Lakers narrow coaching search

    Rockets: McHale, Casey, Frank
    Warriors: Brown, Casey(interviewed), Person, Shaw, Frank(likely to be interviewed)
    Lakers: Adelman, Shaw, Person, Dunleavy

    Are you on CFOriginal or white? But yes I did. When I copied the text from SI, it copied or showed up as black text. Being that I'm on CFDark, black text doesnt really work for me(or other dark users). Sorry, btw.

    Original.

    There must be a problem with the CFDark settings, then. It should automatically render pasted-in text as white, shouldn't it?

    Edit: I tested it in Firefox (3.15.19), and it shows up as white in CFDark. Which web browser are you using?

    It's been a couple days since I last begged for my choice, so I'll bust it out again: Brad Stevens, please.

    we're trying to make our roster into a good defensive team? i think itd take a miracle worker for that. i think people need to remember that if you have a decent first step in this league, you can get by anybody because of the no hand checking rule. to be a good team in this league i think at the very least you need to be good at rebounding which we weren't last year. i guess this is why i don't really care who becomes coach at this point. i guess frank because he has the most experience?

    I think the issue is that I am using the Enhanced Message Editor Interface. I'll just use a diff. color text that shows up for both sides. [[Currently using IE8. [insertjokehere] Ha. ]]

    ^ No. They haven't hired anybody, because they're going to interview all three finalists a second time, before making a final decision.
