    Mike D'Antoni? Not sold on JVG? Leslie gonna Leslie.

    Hey Leslie, you hired a GM. LET HIM DO HIS JOB!

    Rockets fans everywhere will be chugging gallons of bleach if D'Antoni is the hire.

    I don't know what to believe just yet, but Les Alexander loved D'Antoni's Suns and their offense. I could see him envisioning Harden as Nash.

    I think D'Antoni is pretty underrated, but still not the coach I'd want. Would rather go with a defensive minded coach if we're going the retread route, or an up and coming assistant.

    Who's the idiot selling Harden as a Nash-type player to Leslie?!

    If Morey is forced to hire D'Antoni he should just quit.

    Les is not going to follow any orders except his heart. MDA has always been his guy. He fawned over his offenses in Phoenix. He finally gets the chance to land his guy. I really hope Les doesn't do this, but I fear the worst is about to come to fruition.

    ****, if you're gonna hire an offensive guy, Ettore Messina?

    If Les hires Mike, he's gonna bring back Jerry Lin too.

    If Le$ wanted to make all the decisions himself, he needs to make himself Owner, President, and GM...

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

    Edit: Maybe he is being interviewed for assistant to JVG? If he is not it is once again Les meddling and Morey taking the blame.
