    As a Rockets fan, let me say that I like McHale. He's a good guy, and knows the game pretty well. The problem is that he had just totally lost that locker room. You could tell by watching the last few games that there was no heart on the floor. Ty Lawson said himself that McHale would call a defensive play, and then the team would go ahead and run something else. Bickerstaff has been an assistant for almost a decade now, and deserves the chance. Listening to him in halftime interviews, he definitely knows his stuff. Hope this firing so early in the season gets the team's attention.

    Has any team won anything with Dwight Howard?

    They had a players only meeting yesterday. Starting to look like this is an inmates running the asylum problem. Consensus in Houston is for McHale. The majority believe that the players are a bunch of prima donnas that are too soft. Word is that Lawson has killed the chemistry. Harden wanting to be a TMZ star with the Kardashians hasn't helped either. As far as Dwight Howard, well he's Dwight. I would trade him for whatever I could get, and start Capella. If you watch Capella play, you can tell he has a ton of heart, and is going to be a star in the future.

    Can't blame the coach for that

    I wish them luck finding a decent replacement. They'll need it. Thibadeau reportedly rejected the gig in Nawlins because he didn't think Davis would stick around. If he's going to be that picky he sure as sh1t aint goin to Houston.

    Yep. Kid is only 21 years old, and has increased leaps and bounds from the kid that was in D League most of last year. Center position is in good hands when Howard finally leaves.

    I think they win, but don't know about them covering. Might include the ML in a parlay.

    I love all the LA fans that are still butt hurt over Howard leaving. It's funny how all the LA bandwagon fans say you can't win with Howard and Harden but both of them have played in the Finals and both were in WCF last year where as the Clips have never made it past the 2nd Round.

    im a laker fan but could give 2 shits about Howard leaving. We weren't gonna win with or without him. But if you actually think you can win a ring with Howard and Harden you're crazy...
