    Amazing that Mike D’Antoni can get an interview as a head coach anywhere. Maybe offensive assistant. His last head coaching jobs he was a disaster.

      Mike Is a really good coach, sometimes The hand you are dealt Is Hard to win with? Are we basing his coaching career off what happened in his Lakers tenure? Because in NY Amare was no longer Amare once Melo came to Town, not his fault.

    Bring back Dwight, Mike will put Harden And Howard in positions where they can Both succeed And be The 2 way force this team needs to put Houston amongst The West elite. Please give Hazrell some playing time Néxt season, The guy can play some defense And brings athleticism to that Houstin rotation.

      Howard isn’t aggressive enough and they still wouldn’t play any defense. He hasn’t won anything as a coach and took teams with some talent and made then worse.
