    Damn, one of the better TV personalities. Why couldn't they have chosen Mark Jackson?

    If they are rebuilding, this is a good choice. Kids do well for him, if his time coaching the Pups is any indication.

    I really like this hire. McHale proved himself to be a crappy executive, but on the bench he did pretty well. I think this was a good move by the Rockets. Players will play hard for McHale.

    I am resigned to fully expecting us to be the last team to announce their new head coach, and it going to be some name out of left field like a Randy Whitman or Keith Smart or Mo Cheeks. I have to tell myself this so I can be pleasantly surprised if I am wrong.

    Says nothing. Vogel was a courtesy interview by his old buddy Morey. They weren't going to hire him.

    He'll do well. Sota loved him when he coached. IIRC he had built a very special relationship with KG untill those final years.
    He has a big name, great personality and it looked good whenever he had a coaching job.

    It won't be easy to replace a great coach in Adelman, so maybe the record won't show it at first, but I'm happy for Rockets.

    I glad he's got a job now, b/c I wouldn't have been surprised with another Celtic player as HC.

    I thought it was funny Glen Taylor had McHale coach the players he put together as a team. Same as Zeke had to do in NY. The results both achieved at coaching what the put together was deserved. Both were terrible GM's, just terrible. I never understood why Taylor put up with McHale as long as he did.

    I am surprised that if McHale wanted to get back into coaching that Bird wasn't giving him a more serious look. Bird seems to have a lot of allegiance to his old Celtic buddies. For all we know, maybe Bird had McHale in mind as a possibility though??

    On the bright side, that means Rick Adelman is still available.

    This hiring is okay.

    We weren't missing out on much.

    I'm actually pretty surprised McHale wanted to coach permanently.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure that was going to happen no matter who the Rockets hired.

    In hindsight, I don't what I was thinking when I made that post. I guess it was kinda of a "Duh" statement .
