Rick Carlisle calls Kevin McHale's firing 'preposterous'

Dallas Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle doesn't exactly agree with the Houston Rockets' latest decision.

After a 4-7 start to the season, the Rockets opted to fire head coach Kevin McHale, despite the fact McHale and the Rockets just reached the Western Conference Finals last season.

Carlisle weighed in with his thoughts before a matchup with Boston on Wednesday. Here's more from Eddie Sefko of the Dallas Morning News:

"It's preposterous," he said. "It's beyond belief. I'm really shocked. It's just hard to believe that something could happen at this stage to a guy who took a team unexpectedly to the conference finals last year. To have this happen after just 11 games is just preposterous. Nobody expects this. It's very disappointing to hear. But Kevin will be fine. There will be a lot of people wanting to hire him. I can tell you that."
