    It’s obvious MDA doesn’t care about defense and only about offense. This could turn out like the Dantoni Knicks and Lakers if he’s not paired with a Jeff Bzdelik level defensive coach ASAP!

    This is just as important to Rockets success as acquiring Butler/another elite player.

    Or the days of DA are numbered.

    Fertitta is not Less so I guess he won't be run out of town ever unless he resigns.

    Not really a switch everything kind of coach. Need Bzdelik back or coach with similar defensive philosophy. Maybe steal one from GSW.

    YOU CANT REPLACE A GENERAL WITH A CAPTAIN AND EXPECT THE SAME RESULTS IN MOST CASES. tHEY NEED AN INNOVATIVE MIND RUNNING HE DEFENSE. INNOVATION IS THE KEY ASPECT BECAUSE THIS PERSON CAN MAKE GAME TO GAME ADJUSTMENTS SUITED FOR THE PLAYERS WE HAVE.

    It is a borderline disgrace that a dude who has been in the league for 20 years or more could not learn a lick about Defense.

    Half the Defense, double the Offense.

    Mike Woodson...already worked under D’antoni as a Defensive Coordinator during the 11-12 season (Knicks finished 5th in defensive efficiency) and is familiar with a switching scheme as the Knicks probably did the most switching in the league under Woodson

    Ive been saying this since watching the first game! But I think OP is saying to fire MDA? Thats not what ive been saying and thats a bit much, I just think they need a new assistant defensive minded coach to help out and take over Bzdelick's old job. Pairing up MDA with a good defensive minded assistant coach would do wonders for us.

    i think people forget that MDA was really part of a package. It was MDA/JBD. And it worked. I was skeptical ...but it worked. I think we are now seeing how important Jeff BizD really was to our squad. And i actually don't think you can just find another guy off the street that is gonna be as effective as he was getting our D turned around. I hope so. They need to consider bringing in some additional help.

    They can bring back Jeff B. There's got to be a number he wont say no to. But they wont.

    Would any decent defensive coach want to come on with no training camp?

    Last game, Rockets good on defense suck offensively. Clutchfans answer, we need a defensive coach.
