PRO: Led the Rockets to two titles in the ‘90s.
CON: Was a disaster in Los Angeles, hasn’t coached in the NBA since 2005.
"Don't ever underestimate the heart of a champion!" Wielded correctly, that phrase alone could add a good 10 wins to the Rockets total, despite their having not won a title since, well, since Rudy Tomjanovich led them to their second in two seasons 20 years ago. Tomjanovich left the Rockets due to illness in 2003, and neither they nor him have been the same since. He’s still only 66, the same age as Gregg Popovich. Has the modern game passed him by? Only one way to find out!
