    This would be all about harden also. Everybody calling for a defensive minded coach must of forgot who our star player is. All MDA needs is a strong defensive coach like Sampson or Hollins.

    D'antoni would be Adelman part 2. I don't see much wrong with that. He's also better with defense if given the right players.

    D'Antoni + JVG as co-head coach! Make them do all interviews together! Maybe one of them can coach while the other one sits in on color commentary.

    And who knows what the Suns do if Horry doesn't take out Nash?

    Well, it didn't help much. Amare never became all that good on D.

    Adelman was good defensively, not great, but at least good. D'Antoni sucks defensively and the league has caught up to him offensively.

    Knowing Les, I bet this has to do with how much he would have to pay D'Antoni vs. what he would be paying JVG. Cheap owner.

    After that **** show of a season, your first thought is to go hire MIKE D'ANTONI?

    ARE YOU ****ING SERIOUS?!

    Did you watch the games or did you tune out after a certain number?

    Good lord.

    Mike D'Antoni? Is this real life?

    From dreaming of Tom Thibodeau to Mike D'Antoni. GAWD DAMN.

    Maybe Morey is just trying to appease Les by granting D'Antoni a 2nd interview.

    If Les screws this up I'm done with the Rockets until we have a new owner.. Then I'll be back decked in red and yellow

    From the dildo uniforms to Jeremy Lin.. I'm tired of it. The only decent decision I feel he has made as an owner was hiring Morey

    I have ALWAYS backed and defended Leslie when people criticized him because I have personally always felt he put out the money when needed... But IDC if you put out the money if you want to always enforce some stupid decision like these that ruin the franchise.

    No current coach has won anything. Everyone available has flaws. I'd prefer JVG or Vogel, but Mike D can coach.

    If they hire D'Antoni, then Morey needs to pick his own lead assistant for him that needs to be a DEFENSIVE minded coach and a good one.

    Dwight opts out the second after D'Antoni is reported to be hired.
