    Have you ever stared a bad decision directly in the face but you went ahead and did it anyway? Going in, you knew it was the unjustifiably wrong thing to do, like getting behind the wheel of a car after you’ve been drinking or having unprotected sex with that person you just met but it seemed like the right thing to do at the time.

    Well the Houston Rockets are currently in that exact same predicament. They’re coming off a post-season in which they were thoroughly embarrassed. They’ve been drinking, they’re delusional, desperate and their judgment is clearly clouded. And now they have a stranger in their sights and are about to drive off down the road with destiny looming. That ride is Mike D’Antoni and that destiny is another losing season.

    I can't believe they're even considering it.

    The Rockets hiring Pringles D’Antoni was pure brilliance… IF you’re a Lakers fan!!

    Otherwise any team driven by a ball hog with an idiot in the paint is NEVER going to win in the playoffs. They’ll be fortunate simply to make the playoffs with those two… oh yeah just like this year.

    Oh and the obvious.. Ewing doesn’t have the necessary free floating neurons to Head Coach, let alone the nurturing attitude and Shaw was simply biding time to return where he knew he belonged.. with the Lakers!

    To be perfectly honest, as I hinted at in the post, with both Harden and Howard on that roster, I'm not too sure who it matters they get as coach.

    That team is going to suck and underachieve in a most beautiful and dysfunctional way.
