    Awesome...more confirmation that we have the goods to attract other players.


    Always good to hear. We have a coach players want to play for.

    Before the hatas chime in, this is largely a players league/sport. Coach's can't do as much as in football to affect wins. Players have to buy in as a team, and conversely, the Coach has to put them into a system that agrees with their talents and wins. That's what Coach does.

    This is everything I was hoping to hear, now if we hear something about Dwight being ready to take on the job of the best garbage man in the league and surrendering some post ups to dmo we might be the best team in the league

    McHale has always came off as someone you’d just love to have a drink with. So I’m confident he will do well with Lawson on a personal level. And him being buds with Harden should mean Harden will defer more, which we’ve all kind of wanted for the Rockets to have more options than Harden iso all the time.

    My main concern is the defense/offense substitution between Lawson and Beverley. That’s a tricky issue that McHale must be able to handle. That is, be able to convince Lawson he may not always get his minutes or crunch time minutes because of defensive matchups at times.

    Lawson's impact is really underestimated.

    If healthy this team is going to be insane.

    Enjoy the ride folks...:cool:

    "I'm about winning," Lawson said. "I love being on a winning team. At every level I've played at, high school, middle school, college I won championships.

    "This is a chance to play for one of those and get an NBA ring. I'm ready for it."

    Stop. You had me at winning.

    Maybe... Just maybe has to do with the offseason though.

    But I could be wrong.

    Exactly, I really can't believe there are people suggesting he should be on the bench. No way, no how
