    Wouldn’t be shocked if they did it without his blessing either.

    Mike D'Antoni, Brett Gunning, Devan Blair -- James Harden makes us look good so we can keep our jobs.
    All other coaches, GTFO!

    This is very concerning, and frankly....embarrassing.

    This thing really came crashing down fast, huh?

    Hell no. There is no way they release Harden's Trainer out of the blue without asking. This doesn't mean Harden doesn't continue to train with Irv, It just means he is no longer on the pay roll.

    Morey never wanted MDA in the first place it was a Les hire. Owners love MDA it seems. These sources could also be trash.

    Guessing we’re setting things up for MDA’s eventual replacement. Whoever who gets hired to run the defense will get to pick his coaches to bring in with him and be setup to take over if the Rockets decide to move on from MDA...very possible whoever that is, is already in contract negotiations if we’re letting guys go now.

    John Lucas looks to be staying as is Brett Gunning. Losing Lucas would be where I'd truly get worried.

    Morey getting to do his thing... sort of.

    FWIW I trust Daryl Morey more than anyone else in that building.... maybe McNair too, but the rest of them... ehh

    This is how the Watchmen starts. Heroes being killed off mysteriously to cover something up.

    "Brett Gunning and Devan Blair, who the assistants focused on the offensive end of the floor still remain on the Rockets staff, along with John Lucas, who is a player development coach"

    FOR NOW.

    You cut Irv that's where you crossed the line.

    I know he isn't a coach, but if Keith Jones is let go, that's when I will start to get upset.
