Wasn't sure If I should make a new thread or not on Chris Finch so i'll just put it here.
Also had to defend McHale a lil cause, i don't where all this McHale "haters" come from, well I do looks like the Knicks board haha.


Anyway this isn't McHale's offense, last year McHale attacked a lot through the mid range/post with his 4's Scola/Patterson did well.

I suspect this is Finch's game plan and he implementing it this year and next in prep for Finch.

Finch apparently ran this style of offense when he won NBADL championship with RGV.

IIRC Finch also ran this style in the Olympics, he was head coach of Great Britain.
One post 4 perimeter players, uptempo & giving his players plenty of freedom.


I really don't like this style not for this team... they don't have the mental capacity for this style.

Well, Rockets have just lost 7 straight. Sound familiar? Last season, Rockets thought they would make playoff, and all of sudden went on a 7 game skid to end their season in lottery.

Might as well do this

Check the avatar.

Funny enough, I got this avatar when we were hovering around the 10th seed in the West in 07, right around the new year. Then literally a day or two after I started sporting this avatar....we rattled off 22 wins in a row. I didn't take it off, because I figured it was a good luck charm, but now it's fitting again.

I remember before the harden trade i said the roster talent was bottom 5 in the league.

Harden makes a difference but this team still lacked real talent. Mchale doesnt exactly have a lot to work with.

I think this team kind of overachieved a little in the beginning due to the excitement of the harden acquisition. Most of us expect this to be a transition rebuilding year. Our goal in the offseason was to rebuild not contend. We lost 4 of our top 5 scorer during the offseason.(lowry,lee,scola,drafic)

I'll give mchale another year.

i don't understand why the rockets attempt 27.7 3PA per game. it's great when those 3 pointers go in, but when they dont????? they need a solution now.

Opposing teams have figured out the Rockets system. They're doing better defending the transition offense and when the Rockets offense slows down and gets to a half court system, there's no offensive scheme and players start jackin up 3s.
