Kevin McHale Will Grow and Make Morey Proud

Kevin McHale will learn more as a coach. He improves every game, and he’s a very intelligent man both in terms of basketball and life. As he grows as a coach, he’ll begin to impart more of the lessons he learned as a member of legendary Boston Celtics squads.

The two-time Sixth Man of the Year knows defense, but he’s been working with the wrong parts—and at this point it’s just about letting the team develop some chemistry as Morey puts the finishing touches on the roster.

The Rockets are a team on the verge of being very good, potentially even great, and Morey will have some chances to prospect mine with those two first round and early second round picks. The Rockets have cap room.

All the pieces are in place for fully developing this photo into a masterpiece. Rockets fans are hungry; the team hasn’t tasted a title since the 1995 and 96 title squads featuring the legendary Hakeem Olajuwon.
