    I want Sam Cassell
    He can bring back the mid range
    He’s a players coach
    He’s pure

    They can bring Maurice cheeks in at the helm.

    Second in line needs to be Mike browns.

    Tillman gave the dreaded “vote of confidence” but did mention his old age (69) and that they are meeting in a couple weeks. Hopefully they can amicably agree that it hasn’t ever worked for MDA in the playoffs for any franchise. No matter what anyone says, he coached horrendously against the Warriors. Where was double double energy machine “The Manimal”???

    Yea I picked up on the age and "he doesn't know what he wants to do" parts, but as you said, Tilman gave Mike the "vote of confidence" :confused:
    You're absolutely correct. While Mike's coaching wasn't the only issue this year, it was the main one. If your coach isn't smart enough to make basic rotations and in-game adjustments, how can you expect players to elevate their game?

    Can Tilman gives the call timeout power to players or other people. He always does not timeout to let warriors blow our lead

    Players can call timeouts, but they are obviously deferring to Mike.

    He said the age thing in regards to an extension. They aren't firing Dantoni.

    They aren't firing D'Antoni, but they ain't giving him anymore extension. Seriously, this is D'Antoni's last coaching job. I don't see him coaching anymore. If you want D'Antoni fired, persuade Beard.

    A source and a reliable source are two different things.
    I’m a source. I say things. I certainly have nothing to back up what I say besides my personal opinion. Other people’s sources on here are just based on random people talking who they happen to believe but aren’t actually legit.

    Bottom line. MDA is not getting fired. And I’m glad our team is not / did not react off of emotion in the heat of the moment of getting eliminated.

    The Rockets as a whole didn’t get it done. Shouldn’t be individuals blamed.

    Where far"weed" needed to be which is next to towels and a water cooler.

    The MDA ship has sailed, and harden took a vacation...might be time for MDA to get take one of longest vacations possible.

    Don't confuse "Rockets hero" with "great coach." None of us have any idea whether Sammy Bigballs would be a winning coach.

    That said, I love his enthusiasm and I'd definitely interview him.
