You talking about the same Rockets team that had T-Mac and Yao healthy for ONE year 04-05?
The same Rockets team whose 3rd best player
was a 32 year old Juwan Howard?
The same Rockets team that was injury plagued and went to game 7 with Dallas that year?
That team had a 2-0 lead to begin the series IN DALLAS and still choked it away. 07 playoffs 3rd in the West, lost game 7 at home vs Utah. Like I said JVG is good but hes got some ways to go before being considered a championship coach Im sure he'll get there some day just not now and not with this team
Okay, I'll comment now...
So you're basing JVG's career on his final season...fair enough, what's your assessment on MDA's last season? And if this season doesn't count due to injuries and no training camp (I still can't believe people are using this as a valid excuse...but anyways), then how 'bout that final season in NY?
Okay, so now that we got that established, lets look at their collective resume....who edges who out again in terms of results in the postseason? At one point NY was even an 8 seed with an injured Ewing and made it to the Finals....hmm, a low seed with key injuries...for some reason that sounds vaguely familiar.
And speaking of Ewing...that guy that our organization wants to desperately make our future franchise player...yeah, he worked exclusively with Ewing in Orlando. Van Gundy with Ewing compared to Van Gundy with Yao....remind me which center Dwight compares more to...
JVG ain't no film cutting defensive gimmick. He's proven, he's gritty and he seems to handle the big market media scrutiny alot better than some others.
In fact the only things MDA and JVG have in common are their 3 initial references and their resignations in NY. But one thing to note, one of them at least finished out the season before stepping away.
