    What is interesting is that some of the same folks who think McHale should be fired even say Curry is better than Harden and Dwight is a loser so they are saying 5/5 starters are worse and so are the bench players yet, McHale is why we lost.

    How to explain this?

    No one is saying McHale should be fired because the Warriors are a better team. Lots of people are saying McHale should be fired, because he is simply not a good coach. That said, as much as I have grown to dislike his coaching decisions and lack of proper planning, I am not voting to let him go without a viable successor. If you plan on firing someone, you have to know who his potential replacements are first.

    As a knowledgable fan base (for the most part) we want to see progression in all aspects of our team. Mchale made no adjustments in a situation that closely resembled a playoff series in terms of playing a team again quickly. X's and O's are not his strengths and the concern is it will cost us a series. What coach in the top 8 teams in the west is McHale better than?

    Good job twisting what people are posting. You are ignoring all the other games. We don't play the Warriors 82 times in the season. There are many examples of horrid coaching against teams where we have the better roster. Orlando being a recent example.

    Yep.

    The same people who say fire McHale are the same people who say Dwight is terrible, bench Bev for Canaan, Josh Smith is a cancer, Ariza was a bad signing, etc. etc.

    Oh I know. DMo is carrying this team by himself.

    We have arguable the best player in the game on our team with the best defensive center as well.This year, we finally added some depth (Harden's minutes have gone down and his efficiency up since) sp... Stop with the excuses.

    The talent and personnel are there. The coaching staff have not done their jobs of getting everyone to get on the same program. We are seeing regression this month from every single player not named Harden or DMo.

    Who else are you going to blame but the coaching? Look at this Lakers game. We are playing down to our competition, the way a Kubiak-run team would do. Would Steve Kerr take his foot off the gas? The Warriors would beat this Lakers team by 50.

    Who cares?

    Cheer for the team - and if you don't agree, argue your point, no need to be little passive aggressive babies about other people's opinions.

    Let's all hold hands and root for the team, the complainers, and the ones who complain about the complainers.

    GO ROCKETS !

    We will also have the 5th best record in the NBA after tonight. This despite that best defensive center playing injured or out for most of the season.

    Are you saying that result is unacceptable?

    ^This I think people like the OP are the worst on here. Just another person who is tired of people talking about reality. They want people to just talk about sunshine and roses all the time so it doesn't interfere with the homer-isms in their heads.

    There is nothing real about what they are saying. It's crap analysis.

    So ignore it - be the bigger man - garbage in, garbage out.

    Just because you don't happen to agree, doesn't make it crap, just means you don't agree.

    At the end of the day, we all want the Rockets to win, we just don't agree on how to get there.

    Big whup!

    The whole point of coming on here is to talk about the team good or bad. But you and OP aren't doing that you are talking about other people which means you are full of crap. The site is called Clutchfans, how hard is that to understand?

    Yes, I disagree, that's why I'm posting that I disagree. It's a message board. That's the point of being on message boards, to post opinions.

    What's so hard to understand that we are posting our opinions.

    I can't post my opinion on your opinion?

    But you're posting your opinion of my opinion on your opinion.

    The chicken littles have been overrunning the board so it's good to see some pushback.
