The Houston Rockets have been ousted from the 2019 NBA Playoffs. Rockets management may possibly replace Mike D’antoni with a new head coach next season. The Houston fans are hungry for a championship but the Rockets have not been able to beat the Golden State Warriors in the Playoffs.
Most NBA teams can’t stop the Warriors offensive attack, but the Rockets are maybe equal to the warriors offense because of James Harden. Harden can score 30 points every night, but he needs help because the amount of minutes he plays each game can wear him down as Houston begins the Playoff games.
In my opinion Mike D’ Antoni is a great coach and he deserves another chance with the Rockets to win the NBA Finals. The Rockets are in the same conference as Golden State and that is not good for Rockets Fans. Houston needs players like Carmelo Anthony to compete with the Warriors. Houston also has to find ways to disrupt Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant.
Mike D’antoni is the right coach for Houston, but the Rockets must play better defense in the second half of games to keep the score close and within reach. I believe Mike D can be as great as the Rudy Tomjanovich Rockets that won 2 NBA Championships. Mike D’Antoni Is very close to an NBA Title but the Rockets MUST play better on defense. Also Houston needs more Help from their bench players.
If Kevin Durant decides to leave the Warriors and go to the NY Knicks, the Rockets will be Western Champions come next season.
