    F that, Morey needs to stay. We already kneejerked one time and fired McHale. I'm not ready to blow up this team while we're 7th in the Western Conference Standings almost half way through the season.

    The blame game goes around when times are tough, and I dont think Morey is the right target. The guy has gotten us key pieces and found role players who contributed to this team greatly time and time again.

    If you guys are seriously talking about changing the 'culture' of this team then why not get a new owner while we're at it.

    Isn't that obvious? The owner won't fire himself.

    Come on now! Morey turned this team around after he got dealt a crap hand. Yeah he's made mistakes but what GM hasn't. Put yourself in his shoes for a sec. Yao retired due to Injuries and TMAC got traded because he was a shell of his former self (He also stopped giving a ****).
    What is the first thing that comes to mind when you lose your Two All-Stars on the team? Rebuild! Right? Not so fast!, not if Mr. Alexander and his “Competitive Nature” have anything to do with it. So know you're stuck in Mediocre-ville for 2-3 years where you can’t position the team to get a high draft pick or make the playoffs. Man.., How the heck do you get out of this one? Oh wait…

    Dude literally traded a bag of **** for a western conference finals team that is still incredibly young and roster flexible. Some of you young dick cheeses don't remember how bad things really were. They were hopeless.

    Dork Elvis will get this team on track. We have lost a few close games, but we are playing exceptional, with only a few hiccups.

    Someone help me understand? What culture are we attempting to change? This conversation was non existent while we were winning.

    You can change as many execs as you want, that's not going to create a "culture change." Whatever that means. I watch these games, and we have legitimate opportunities to win, the players just begin to play terribly. IE Atlanta game. A culture change isn't going to change how we'eve been playing.

    I don't agree with all of Morey's moves, but the man rebuilt the franchise without making us tank. No team has done that. Not the Warriors, Spurs, OKC or Cleveland. Last year, we had an MVP candidate, made the WCF and added an All Star caliber player. Who didn't think that the GM put us in a position to succeed this year? The failure is with the coach and the players not the GM

    I agree, knote has had good posts in the past. Hoping that he is being sarcastic. The first step in solving a problem is addressing and acknowledging it.

    Morey got to form his own entourage and revamp his team... hire brilliant new minds....

    I agree with someone that said Battier or Cassell for assistant coach


    Right now Morey is on the high horse but he needs to remember how it was to be a young, hungry new GM again.

    The team has been horrible and hard to watch except for couple games against the Spurs, Clippers and so on.

    That was the more exception than the norm

    When Steve Kerr comes back, I wonder if the Houston Rockets will respectfully ask Luke Walton to coach their team and if he will accept the Houston job now that he has had a taste of being a head coach? The arch rivals up and coming coach will not be a bad idea in My opinion at the moment. If he denies the job, then so be it, but if the Houston Rockets are willing to do whatever possibly necessary in trying to win, I see this as a good opportunity to do so by hiring a coach who has been brought up by the greats in the game. If not, I suspect I might know where the Houston Rockets organization true priorities are at the moment.

    Lez should just fire Moray and make all the decisions himself.
