He was a terrific basketball player, but he hasn't been great at anything else. He's a pretty boring commentator, too. Not hating. Just sharing facts.
I've got nothing but respect for a hall-of-famer athlete.
I hope everything works out well in H-town.

Great development coach for Thabeet I would think. Thabeet has next to no post moves to speak of.

They should've just went for a college coach with a name factor.

Who was the last name college coach to have success in the NBA?

Well his strong suit is his ability to develope young players so having him around young bigs patterson and Jordan Hill should pay off for us.

I have serious mixed feelings, either way, Houston will not be competing in the west for a LONG time! We have our work cut out for us, beginning with cutting back some salary fat on our roster

Exactly, he's easily one of my favorite analysts.

I wish him all the best in Houston, but seriously he's not the answer for the Rockets.

C'mon guys... morey is still one of the best decision makers in the league.....

how many other teams have dealt with the same obstacles as hosuton in the past few years.....

i think adelman did a good job... but they could have been a playoff team last year.....

i have faith in morey......

give McHale a chance before ripping him a new one...
