Rockets players were surprised by the move and stuck up for coach Rick Adelman, who the team let walk.
By the way, I saw a couple places where Rick Adelman’s name got mentioned as a possible replacement for Phil Jackson in Los Angeles. Not going to happen. It’s almost certainly lead assistant Brian Shaw’s job, but if the Buss family decides to go another direction it will not be the older Adelman but to a younger coach and a more running system. Jerry Buss still misses Showtime.
Isiah Thomas as Richard Nixon. It works.
George Karl wishes Seattle still had a team. We all do.
