None of that even seems....interesting?
Do yall think a level past that or look at them and say "they got some good DNA"?
Pop and Carslisle are two of the best coaches in the NBA.
Those guys don't grow on trees man. Idk why you keep trying to compare Pop and McHale. Can the rockets be better with a better coach, well duh. Absolutely.
Were the Rockets struggling thru "3 long hard years" because of McHale? Nope. It's really simple.
I get what you've been trying to say, but I just have to tell you you're flat out wrong. I've easily watched 70+ Rockets games a season for yeeears, and can tell you EXACTLY how things have gone on here, both good and bad. McHale's not at all 100% of the blame, as I've constantly questioned simple effort (especially with this season so far), but I can tell you regardless of upset wins, convincing wins, or embarrassing losses, McHale was gonna be a glass ceiling over this team. You can't reach the ultimate goal of a title without a coach that can actually draw up real life plays. We gonna forget Jeremy Lin was drawing up plays several times here with McHale standing right there? I'm embarrassed that people even have the sentiments they do about McHale. I haven't watched a bunch of MDA, Scott Brooks, or Byron Scott games, but I'm also not totally clueless about their coaching styles like an alarming # of people in this thread are. Barely making adjustments, being out coached, burying younger players to the bench for lengthy periods after even the most minute mistakes, and even keeping players in games that clearly should be pulled are staples of McHale's coaching, regardless of who is on the roster. Those are facts that well-informed Rockets fans know and general common sense having NBA fans should also know. Facts
, not highlights from vine, and not surface box scores. There's nothing else you or anyone else with the same sentiments can say about that, cause like before, it would still be incorrect.
