  • Theyre going to struggle if they dont find a new good GM. Made this team the 2nd best winning team in this decade behind the spurs. Sucks their playoff hopes didnt go well, missing 27 3s in a row is a statistical impossibility that occured lmao but if they had won against the warriors that year, theyd be champs no doubt.

  • They should make Kenny the jet Smith the bect rockets general manager or and sam Cassel should be there next coach .if not jason stoudamire or jason kidd .the rockets next coach should be a point guard so that he can get the most from his two MVP guards.and bring back clinton capela.

  • The best NBA teams keep their identity that's what keep them in contention for titles ie. Warriors, lakers. The Rockets was known for their legendary centers. And what they did this year played without a real center. You can evolve but u must retain your core identity.

  • Morey really screwed up when he tweet his support for HK. That cost the Rockets alot of Chinese money. The only way to salvage that was to win the championship, which obviously didn't happen.

  • One side he missed quite a few stuff because of his pure analytics stand point but on the other side the rockets were the only team that posed a threat to the Warriors. This shows analytics can be misleading and I hope he gets a job in someplace like Knicks. Atleast he knows how to trade and make the place relevant

  • If this shows anything its that even if you're brilliant and very smart this doesn't necessarily translate into success with regards to winning championships.. Morey is an MIT graduate and he is very well known for delving into analytics and implementing it into the Rockets style of play where they relied on small ball and shooting 3's.. For the Warriors this style of play worked out and they won 3 championships in the process but not for the Rockets.. There are things like commitment, team chemistry, dedication just to name a few which the Warriors had while the Rockets didn't and these things can't be measured by analytics

  • Russ’ true passion is his Fashion, James Harden Cares about the night life, Miami Nights and trips with IG Hoes and Strip Club. Daryl Morey’s first idiotic move was thinking they could win a championship with either, his second idiotic mindset was thinking you can go anywhere using analytics. But his most stupid statement was when he said James Harden was a better scorer than Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant. You’re never going to win when you have a complete imbocile running the show.

This wasn't my first time trading but honestly I didn’t know what to expect when I first joined. After much loss. God walked me through the entire process from start to finish, which was a HUGE plus! They made the entire process so easy and hassle-free! I’m very impressed! Go to him @Dennis_forex09 I will definitely be referring him to you all.

  • I don't know about his basketball decisions with Houston, but Daryl Morey was the only man with the intestinal fortitude to call out CCPChina. I don't blame him, the NBA as a whole is a sellout to China. NBA fan since the 70s, but on this issue Adam Silver and NBA are wrong-they should stand up to China on human rights abuses. Principalities involved, not always about money!

Do you think Jeff is going to sign up to that?
