A relationship between a team's point guard and the head coach is an important one, and it sounds like newly acquired Houston Rockets point guard Ty Lawson and head coach Kevin McHale are getting started on building something special.
Lawson and McHale recently had dinner together, and Lawson came away impressed at his new head coach's demeanor.
“Kevin McHale, he's a cool coach,” Lawson said in an interview with FOX 26 Sports. “I sat down and had dinner with him, probably like a week ago. “He just keeps everything real. He's played before, so he knows what we're going through. He makes everything straight forward, no grey areas. It was fun. We talked about everything, not just basketball, just life. He even had some stories when he used to play. It was a fun dinner.”
