View Full Version : ITT: We take a moment to admire Daryl Morey

In his short time in the NBA, Daryl Morey has completely turned around a franchise and made them big contenders for a championship.
In his first major move in the NBA, he took a perennial 8/9 seed team which never got better or worse and shipped every single player away. What did he get in return? Nothing but picks and assets. Fringe players most had no interest in. In many different moves, he turned them into James Harden, a budding superstar franchise player.

He then stole two potential players, Asik and Lin, from their respective teams using poison pill contracts they couldnt match. Backloaded contracts with big paydays on the third year. The best part? He traded both of them away before their third years when the backloaded contracts would come into affect. One of which traderaped another team for a potential lotto pick.

Before he traded them away, he lured Dwight Howard, the best center in the league in the team to make a powerful duo with Harden. They need some work together but they have years to do it on a young stacked team. Now they are on the cusp of gaining a third megastar player on bosh, terribly underrated who finally can play his game again. He can show the young guys what you need to do to win big in the NBA.

Speaking of young guys, Morey is an expert at finding diamonds in the rough. Parsons, DMO, Jones and Beverly.

Do you know if the Rockets gave up their own 2015 pick in the Lin trade or the Pelicans 2015 pick? I highly doubt they gave up the Pelicans pick but I can dream lol

I dont think they officially have made the Asik trade so they wouldnt be able too unless its considered a three way, which it wasnt reported as.

They gave a 25+ pick and kept the lotto

Well the Lin trade may not have been made official yet either. Maybe they have a verbal agreement for it to be the Pelicans pick? I'm 99% sure you're right but I just want to make sure

We'll see I suppose. Not sure the Rockets want the cap hit from it in the future anyways. Probably always meant as tradebait

Until they make the 2nd round they aren't a legit contender. The Rockets have had better lineups IMO and still managed to fail.

I thought he went full potato when he spent $50 million on Asik and Lin but it looks like it's all coming together.

Lol @ Harden being a 'budding' superstar. Don't get me wrong he's alright, but in no way is he 'budding'. He has already met his potential and that potential seems to be flopping for 20 FT's a game then get to the playoffs and realize they don't call pussy chit

Naw I'm hating tho, your team will be good

He did go full potato, its just that he recovered nicely by getting 30 of those 50 cleared now.

Not sure how Mitch failed to take bigger advantage of Houstons need to get rid of Lin. Maybe the threat of Philly willingly jumping in made Mitch nervous.

Houston fans should be on their knees cleaning off the Spurs honestly

They gave them Scola and Dragic in a way while also beating down Howard so bad he left LA which is unprecedented
Then they put down an alltine beatdown on Miami which will allow them to get Bosh

They also allowed Harden to look better then he was and advance when he should have been knocked out
Then Miami exposed him which led to Houston being able to trade for him

If they lose in 2012 Wcf with Harden putting up great stats hes probably resigned

He's by and away the best 4 available right now, and with his game, on paper would make the most sense.

Agreed, but it was well documented Gasol does not like playing with Dwight. Their styles do not mix.

Gasol will either go to NYK or OKC.

Riley didn't do ****, all he did was throw insane amounts of money at Bosh. I saw a tweet claiming Bosh is currently the highest paid player in the NBA. Bosh likely bolts if not for the mega contract.

Houston can offer money more money than OKC, and has a higher chance to win than NY. Who knows, maybe Dwight and Pau have worked it out and realized it was all pringles fault.

Ramona Shelburne just confirmed the top 2 for Pau is San Antonio and CHI, but only to CHI if they can pull a sign and trade.

at this point the only thing I can hope for is that we lay low for the rest of free agency... pile up cap space and hopefully be able to grab K-Love next summer since no one seems to want to give minnesota what they want

Cleared Lin and Asik and will pay Parsons a max contract without bringing anyone in.
