    If this is how Les rolls, then I want Kubiak to be the next coach.

    Dear Mark Berman, please stop mentioning Mike Brown and Woodson in your reports.

    I'd love to see Elston Turner as our next coach! Not only has he paid his dues under some really good coaches but Les could sign him for a lot cheaper than another big-name coach. Personally, I don't see anyone from the poll list that could do a better job with the talent o hand. And for all those wanting to bring back JVG, think again. He had his chance and there's not a chance in hell that Les brings him back. And there's no reason to do this anyways. JVG had two superstars on the roster and couldn't get us past the first round of the playoffs. Do you guys REALLY think he could do better with the current roster? If so please state our case.

    The bottom line is, the Rockets didn't need another coach. This was a dumb move on Les' part. What the Rockets NEED is MORE TALENT.

    Kubiak's explanation after the Rockets fail to make the playoffs yet again:

    "Those boys were out there battlefighting all night. I can't ask for anything more... they laid it all on the line, and kept on battlefighting."

    Larry Brown and Sloan are clearly the best 2 coaches out there. Why do folks keep saying Sloan hates young players? D-Will, Miles, Milsap, AK-47, Okur, Price, Wesley Matthews...he played all those guys when the Stockton/Malone era ended...and only had one losing season.

    I want a young, inexperienced coach like stevens or even one of adelman's..... One that we know that could be a great coach in the future. ... I want to suck this next year, but have a great coach in place by the time we are ready to contend.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

    I'd rather have DD coach the team.

    If we hired Thomas, we might as well bring in Michael Jordan as part owner and GM to really screw up the joint.

    At least the tankers would be happy.

    I really like the pipedream of having the Van Gundy's coaching together and Stan possibly bringing D. Howard with him. Winning!!!;)

    Not with this current squad. Too many scorers to be boring. JVG would do wonders with this team.

    Frankly, I am just too numb to care about the next coach.

    Mike Woodson is already in talks with the Rockets. Source close to Woodson. Take it for what it's worth.

    Funny how at mid-season everyone was calling for Adelman's here but now all of a sudden y'all are appauled and outraged by the fact that he's not returning.

    Flip floppin selves, worse than flap jacks.
