McHale said he can see lineups when Asik and Howard would play together in addition to Asik, who along with Howard would create perhaps the best defensive and rebounding rotation in the league, backing Howard up. McHale called to mind the 1980s when the Rockets used lineups with Hakeem Olajuwon and Ralph Sampson. "You do play two bigs," McHale said. "You have to get spacing and you have to make sure your small guys have got to make sure they keep the court spaced." ESPN.com

Howard spent the days leading to his decision camped out in a Colorado resort. Howard called McHale to refute reports that surfaced late Friday night that suggested he was second-guessing his decision to sign with the Rockets. "The crazy thing was Dwight was flying from Colorodo and the 50-50 [speculation] and all this other stuff, he was a little bit upset about that," McHale said. "He said, 'I didn't change my mind.' I had a pretty good feeling, but when it's finally done, you're really happy and looking forward to working with him after you sign him." ESPN.com
