houston needs to fire van gundy and hire a real coach
 
I say they get larry brown. With Tmac and Yao, Larry brown gets the most complete center in the game as well as the most talented player in the NBA. Tmac may be a lazy bum, but one thing he doesn't do is clash with coaches. There also are too many young guns in Houston for Brown to bench.

Van gundy is basically a broke man's Brown; dude thinks he is playing "the right way" by emphasizing defense at the expense of offense. Don't get me wrong, Tmac and Yao are above average defensive players (Tmac when he tries, at least) but JVG must be a retard to not see the importance of utilizing their obvious offensive skills correctly.

I'll trade you Terry Stotts for JVG.

Hell no, man.

It's just taken JVG a while to get out of the '90's style of ball and accept he doesn't coach the Knickthugs. He may not be the best coach in the league, but he's good enough... Sure as hell don't want Larry Brown, although I'd have killed to get him before he went to Det.

Maybe his brother.

Van gundy is a great coach, he knows the game real well and was part of those seattle championships back in the 60's

Actually, that's not even that bad of an idea. I think they would improve 5 wins just from Jeff to Stan.

It's kind of sad to watch Jeff Van Gundy coach, he really has no idea what is going on it seems. All he does is preach is defense, while completely holding his team's obvious offensive potential back in the process. I think they definitely need a new face in Houston.

He is the one that started to transform Steve Francis to what he is now, it makes me angry to even think about that!:hammerhead:

Brown will still **** it up.

Actually, quite the contrary.

Steve looked as though he was ready to turn the corner in his last season in Houston, I felt. He was looking for Yao more, playing hard, giving his all for the team.

Steve plays like the way he plays right now when he's on losing teams.

Stan is more offensively minded that Jeff and would be a good fit in Houston. But can you imagine a coach getting replaced by his brother? I dont think it's ever happened.

It was real painful to watch all those Houston games last season. With Yao carrying them the whole game until the 4th when he runs out of gas and the team goes into huge scoring droughts.

JVG has his good and bad points:

I am a Knicks fan, so I know him real well. I believe JVG is a great coach, if and only if, he has HIS type of players..which is a defensive minded, slow tempo game. He knows how to coach those teams very well.

Plus, he's a tremendously hard worker, he knows his x's and o's of the game real well, very good at managing late game situations, and he is extremely loyal to his players, coaches, etc.

On the other hand, he lacks "creativity" when he has players that don't mesh with his system. I just don't think he really knows how to use Tmac and Yao to maximize their abilities. I mean, with those two guys alone, shouldn't they complete at the highest levels for a championship? Wouldn't Riley and/or Phil Jackson figure out a way for them to get to the championship level?

JVG, good coach for some times, not for others....(how's that for on the fence)...

JVG is a good coach. They need to keep him.

Joey Zaza 06-26-2006 12:49 PM

I'm a huge JVG fan (see avatar) but hegot owned by Avery two seasons ago..and that's not good. JVG's rep was always, fair regular season coach, but great playoff coach, in that he could use his brain and make adjustments better over a long series.

Cannot judge him on last season, injuries crushed him. I think that if he doesn't get to the 2nd round this season, he is done.

Phil Jackson would make the Rockets real contenders
