    The majority of Clutchfans are usually knee-jerkish and wrong, but they are 100% right on McHale being a bad coach and needing to go.

    How many wins would we have had with Adelman coaching this same squad? Rick Adelman was never given his due respect during his tenure with the Rockets. He was the best coach in franchise history, better than Rudy T.

    We have more talent than the T-Wolves. Way more.

    The same as the Wolves... Adelman cant even get a good Record with 2 of the best front court players in the league.

    some of you think the treatment of Lin is bad with Mchale? Imagine how Adelman would treat him.

    22 win streak? Game 7 against the Lakers in the second round? One of the winningest coaches of all time?

    Adelman would have utilized more plays than Isos. How can you say we'd have the same record?

    The Ruler was one hell of a coach, He didn't take crap from anybody, he ruled.

    Finally led the Rockets to a playoff series win, had to deal with Diva superstar and his injuries.

    Before that helped put the Kings on the map and when he had a true superstar with heart and toughness, CLYDE DREXLER, he led them to the NBA Finals twice.

    The Ruler has a defined system. One of the best coaches ever.

    I liked Adelman, but many here at Clutchfans wanted him fired.

    They'd be the same.

    Huge efforts when players were out, lack of D, tons of 3s and shots in the paint...etc etc.

    Same with folks screaming George Karl. That "just play basketball" stuff that most of these coaches are all about these days.

    He doesn't go well with out system. Plus we need to play defense that's what is hurting us the most. Open lanes for the guards and offensive rebound by the other team and second chance points. Every time I see the other team do pnr they score. The help over helps and his man gets a wide open shot
