i'm not even a houston rockets fan but i have got to give props to rick adelman...he's done an amazing job with the rockets and was a great coach with the sacramento kings leading them to numerous western conference finals...he's been without his 2 best players for almost the entire year, has turned brooks/ariza into a very deadly 1-2 punch, has shown the world how good carl landry is, has won with a 6-5 center and a rookie from australia who is 29 years old...the guy knows how to coach and i'm impressed...imagine how good they would be with this lineup:
C-Andersen (he may not have been on this team had yao been healthy, but hes been solid)
there's no doubt in my mind this team competes with L.A. for the best WC team
any houston fans agree with me that adelman's done a terrific job?
Also he deserves the title in 2002 when the Kings were robbed by the refs.
I'm sure they would've won and beaten the Nets to win the title.
Adelman's teams always compete, play good defense too.
