Kevin McHale was hired to be head coach of the Houston Rockets because he has prior coaching experience, because he's a Hall of Fame power forward and a coach that just about every player who has played for him has loved.
Take Kevin Love for example. Love tweeted this when McHale was fired as T-Wolves coach, "Today is a sad day ... Kevin McHale will NOT be back as head coach this season."
McHale is great at developing young big men. Kevin Love is a product of McHale's work with him during his tenure with Minnesota. Love has turned out to be a very, very good player to say the least.
But moving on to why Houston hired McHale. What are some things he could do to wow the Houston fans and win them over?
