    No more excuses. I keep seeing rockets fans post that the players weren't motivated because of mchale, that's not the coach's job. If players arent motivated on their own then they got bigger problems. They better step it up now.

    Is that really McHale's fault though? They seemed to give more effort than this last year

    They've been talking about it on ESPN radio for a week at least.

    Any idea why the first McHale fired thread was closed?

    I disagree. The coach is the only person who can get the whole team together working at their best. You need players who are self motivating too, but not everyone is motivated the same way. If a player is under performing the coach is the person who controls their minutes, and is the only one who can tell them "fix it or you don't play" The best coaches put their players in the best situations to succeed which leads to more motivated players. The SF Giants don't win without Bochy managing the personalities in the clubhouse, the playing time on the field, and the game strategy.

    I don't think McHale is the main issue, and the firing seems like giving up awfully quickly in this season, but to say that coaches have no responsibility for the effort the players on the floor give is just too simplistic a position.

    I'd agree with that, however they had motivation last year it seemed. Harden was making an effort at times to play defense, guys seemed to be playing with a purpose. What changed from last year to this year?

    The amount of power Lil B and the Kardashians have is crazy.

    I mean if he lost the locker room, then its time for a change. Don't think its his fault, but they can't keep getting blown out the gym every night and not expect a move to be made. This team has too much for talent for this.
