    But as today, how many teams are in searching of a coach?

    Rockets, Lakers, Knicks, Kings 100%

    Hawks, Grizzlies, Sixers 50%

    I'd say that one between Jeff, Bud, Messina, Joerger, Hollins, Walton (yuk), Jackson, Karl, Blatt will be available anyway, and maybe i forgot someone.
    I just hope we'll not be in the position to chose between Karl and Jackson :grin:

    As much as I like JVG, his teams were ugly offensively. I hope with James Harden he wont return to ugly ball.

    James Harden's offense and Van Gundy's go hand in hand. Just iso ball, or pick & roll.

    Jeff's been out of the game for a healthy amount of time. About 9 years, I'm really hoping offensively he's learned he needs to be more imaginative. Development wise, he needs to trust younger players at times. And overall, he needs to instill a better offense. Defensively, we'll be elite with him.

    And that's the type of blanket statement, we really need to avoid preaching on about. Our offense needs to extend beyond James Harden Isos.

    Give me a break. I watched this team this season. So did many other Rockets fans and NBA fans and reporters in general. We all saw what was going on out there on the court and on the sidelines. This was a dysfunctional group that mailed it in from training camp.

    No one needs to plant anything in order to destroy the Rockets from within. The organization took care of that all on its own.

    You need to hand it to Morey and his genius for anticipating the incoming fire while he is already setting the table for deflecting the blame for the inevitable failure to sign any significant free agent in FA.

    He is bound to fail again and he already pointed to other teams bad mouthing the Rockets for his definite failure. Indeed, he is a genius and he should work for Du Pont so that a more revolutionary fabric could replace teflon. He can name the new super deflector replacing teflon as 'Morey, Les and his CF blind cultists".

    Lakers have agreed to terms with Luke Walton to be their next head coach, according to team sources.

    Luke Walton is not a good coach.. Curry being the best 3pt shooter ever makes he and Kerr look good.
