    I'm going to try and take the half full outlook. He is not JBB and...well, that's all I can think of.

    Whichever media member at that press conference that asks this question.....

    "Daryl, at the end of the season you mentioned that DEFENSE was going to be a top priority with the next coaching hire. What convinced "you" that D'Antoni's defensive schemes were the perfect fit to elevate the Rockets?"

    Cue Morey possibly stating that the city of Houston is lucky to have D'Antoni as a head coach. The Rockets probably had one great coach in Adelman the past 15 years, and it seems like the owner did not like the man, but they will possibly still gloat that who ever they hire is always a great hire along with decision for the team.

    MDA got the job because of how he looks and his personality. There's something strangely familiar with his demographic profile (notwithstanding a JBB interim stretch)....

    :rolleyes:

    I was angry about this hire at first but im starting to come around to it....mainly because i have to. That said it was encouraging to read that Steve Kerr had D'Antoni come in and work with the Warriors on their offense a couple years ago before they took off. Cant wait to see Al Horford and Clint Capela setting illegal screens to free Corey Brewer for the 3.

    Berman should have asked him what it'll be like to work with Dwight again.
