    Great news, and not just for Dwight - Hakeem has been helping all kind of players, no matter the position. And it's great to have the biggest Rockets legend officially work for the Rockets again!

    I actually remember reading in one of the Dwight threads at the time of the meeting that they were going to hire Dream as a private trainer/coach for Dwight.

    I included this in a summary I posted about the meeting but it was met with strong denials from another poster calling me a liar. I'm wondering if the Rockets didn't want this made public between the time of the meeting and Dwight signing for some reason.

    I think it's a fantastic move.

    Rockets included this as a package in their sales pitch in LA and are now keeping their word.

    How much of an impact this will have on Howard, remains to be seen. He has already worked with Hakeem before.

    I've been screaming this for years to everyone I know at TC to no avail. 2008-2009 was the only year we've had a decent intro song since the Barkley days.

    Thats how I figure it to be. Its similar to lots of ex-player services roles. Making occasional appearances in the name of the club. Spot duties, nothing too deep and heavy.

    It could mean that instead of
    "Remember those 4 sessions we had 2 years ago?"
    it can be more like
    "Alright, we'll meet up again in 3 weeks to work on more things."

    Finally!

    Big men in Houston now have a advantage nobody else in the nba can match

    Two of the greatest big men of all time to coach the, Hakeem and McHale.

    Can't wait for those two to get to work on all of our big men.

    Les is going all out.

    Dream should teach his footwork to both Howard and Harden. Meanwhile McHale will teach Howard how to clothesline someone (aka mental toughness)

    Difference is Hakeem can show by example. Mchale can't even walk these days. He'll have to instruct.
