Why not just come out and tell the Lakers he's going to Houston? Why meet with the team tonight and now have it floating that the extra money is hard to turn down?
Why make this a huge soap opera?
Because that's all he's ever done. Did it for years with Van Gundy, did it last year, and this is the biggest stage he may ever get.
