As much as Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni would rather not have the potential distraction that could come with former Rockets coach Kevin McHale’s criticism of James Harden’s leadership and Harden’s strong rebuttal, he said that dealing with those sorts of public issues has become part of the job. “It’s hard in modern society with … social media. It’s tough,” D’Antoni said. “It’s the new way of doing things and players have to deal with it. Coaches got to deal with it. We try to stay locked in as much as we can, knowing it’s not always going to be that way. And we just move on. “We’re using the same motto we used last year; ‘So what, what’s next.’ We were successful with that last year and we’ll try to do that again.”
