Default How good is Kevin McHale as a coach?

Only gone for 4 months and the Rockets are already in full rebuild mode, how good is Kevin McHale?

Knicks should be all over him.

I don't know, but when he appeared on Inside the NBA a couple of days ago he seemed like a genius when talking basketball compared to Barkley & Shaq.

A lot of people didn't like McHale though.

Harden, Howard, and other guys on the rockets are bit#hes. Players today are bit#hes. I'm tired of coaches being the scapegoats for soft players that can't take instruction. Players that give up on their coaches and team have no reason to be in the NBA. They get no respect. I don't think Mchale was a great coach, but they were better with him.

Please stop talking about the Rockets. I see you in every thread concerning the Rockets trying to talk shit but you know absolutely nothing about the team or its players.

If you know nothing about the subject then you're better off keeping it to yourself instead of sounding like a complete idiot.

He's right.

Harden and Howard can't take that kind of coach. They want someone who will let them run wild.

Was not a big fan of him a few years back, but i respect his progress the last few years. he did a good job in Houston. The same team with Prigioni and Smith was in the WCF. But with 2 "me-guys" as your best players and both no leaders you cant win on the long run. he will get another job soon and will be happy being away from "fat and no D"-Harden and "always injured and crybaby"-D.Howard.

I'm not sure he has the presence to be a great NBA coach. I think he'd make a fantastic assistant or development coach though. McHale is the kind of guy you want to sit down and just pick his brain for basketball knowledge.

hes pretty good I just picked him on a $200 contract for my local rec league team. He's a bit iffy on rotations at times but he knows how to inspire and motivate us.

Better than I thought judging from the current Rocket season....I guess.

But they started off the season bad in the beginning. I don't know what's going on with the Rockets.

He's horrible. He might be a good analyst or whatever but in game situations he's bad. No plays out of time outs, his huddles are nothing but him saying "C'mon guys! C'mon guys!", he doesn't hold star players accountable (though to be fair few coaches do this) and his rotations are laughable.

Current nba players are so immature and stupid. It's baffling.

"McHale's coaching style is exactly like he played: hard-nosed, rugged, up in your face," Lowry wrote on The Players' Tribune. "It was about team, team, team, and doing whatever it takes to be the best teammate possible.

"I didn't understand his philosophy. It sucks, because he was only trying to help me become a better player. If I had allowed him to coach me, things could have worked in Houston."
