    So he can grind Harden and Howard into dust? No thanks. Look what he did to Rose.

    Agreed, I want to see a 7 man rotation because McHale plays entirely too many guys with his 8 man rotations.

    I selfishly wish they'd let go of Hollinger so he could return to ESPN. I know a lot of people on here don't care for him, but his per diem was always a nice break in my work day.

    I, for one, would like if Hollinger went back to ESPN. I like Pelton, but Hollinger is a better writer.

    Yup..... said it 3 years ago, they can be good, but they are not talented enough to win a title. Funny that they are looking at coaching changes, the problem is a lack of top tier talent.

    Hollinger is NOT a joke. He's a great basketball mind.

    The question is, can he get along with other people in an organization..... if he is fired, I don't know if he gets another NBA shot... this will be 2 organizations where he lasted less than two seasons.

    They took the Thunder to 7 games, got screwed without Zach Randolph in game 7 so they lost. Clippers lost in 6 games.

    How do they not have top tier talent? If they were healthy all year, they would have been 3rd seed in the West.

    I'm not saying they are the best team in the west, but they are definitely a contender. They made Durant and Westbrook play terribly, and then you saw how much they lit it up against the clippers.

    Their problem has always been scoring. Always.

    Never had a consistent scorer.

    Don't understand all these "clashes" among successful, professional adults.

    I did enjoy Hollingers player card writeups at ESPN tho.

    What's the issue with Hollinger's body of work thus far with MEM? He's been fine.

    I'd die laughing, but it would be sad for the Rockets since Hollins is the coach that they need.
