    I don't think the Rockets pick a coach or a coach picks Houston until Dwight says what he is going to do. I don't think the next coach wants to inherit the Dwight and Harden dynamic.

    Hollins is a good coach that did a very good job while he was at Memphis. Memphis's front office made a mistake in getting rid of him. However, I don't think Hollins would be a good fit here in Houston - don't see him meshing well with Morey.

    i dunno how good he is with x's and o's, but hollins is a good leader. discount what he did with the nets, that team is irrelevant and i feel like firing him was just to accelerate their bottoming out process. joerger acquitted himself nicely after rumors he was being fired at the start of this past season, but i have no reason to believe he's a better coach than either hollins or vogel.
    i love JVG but the game may have passed him.
    if available, vogel is the best coach we could land. hands down, no questions asked.

    I have no interest in a coach who turned zach randolph around, beat the higher seeded spurs, helped develop conley and gasol, and had a distinctive style molded around his players. Yeah, no thanks to that guy.

    I'm actually OK with Hollins if we don't get JVG or Messina. I'd also be OK with McMillan. Hollins and McMillan would be respected and better prepared than either of our last two coaches.

    Like I've said before, JVG isn't going anywhere. Nobody else is going to hire him... so we can wait on Vogel's decision lol

    Man, I was really hoping before that Hollins could be Co head with McHale, I mean before he took Nets train wreck... that could have changed a lot of things... Oh well. I do like Hollins though

    Hollins overall is a pretty good coach. I don't hold the Brooklyn stint against him. But he would definitely clash with Morey. Hollins is too old school for Morey.

    The fact ou think he has to "mesh" well with a GM who has a terrible reputation around the league, says something about the arrogance of our fans & front office:rolleyes:

    Except I had Morey calling Hollins. Morey, an analytics freak, calling an old-school, analytics-is-crap coach. Reaching out to somebody who is obviously not in sync at all with his philosophy, so it's almost as if he's simply looking for someone who is, yes, a good coach, but not on the same page, but will be tough on James.

    Thanks for turning it into something racist, though. Which it wasn't meant to be. AT ALL. My apologies. Didn't mean to offend.
