    Why does Daryl Morey need to be honest about something that doesn't matter anymore? That's like getting a divorce and MONTHS later asking your once significant other if they cheated on your on XYZ day or not. Who cares at this point?

    So the guy almost beat a healthy warriors (except for iguodala at the time) got hurt with the 3-2 lead because he played his best. Then harden comes in not able to win even one of the next 2 games, missing 27 straight 3pt the entire team last game. Then u agrees to sign the guy for the price he asked for, after one not so great overall season for the rockets. suddenly cp3 is washed, when he almost won the chip for rockets 12months ago. Suddenly cp3 is overpaid as if rockets got trick into signing the contract.

    I’m pro-player, but it makes sense not to tell players (especially the more high profile ones) that they are getting traded. Every GM probably has nightmares about what happened to New Orleans with the AD situation. The better players have the ability/influence to kill their original team’s leverage by making their preferred destinations known. The Pelicans ended up getting lucky because: 1. Rob Pelinka was desperate 2. LeBron is getting older/on a shorter contract, so he threw his weight into the mix from the Lakers side (and via Rich Paul) 3. The Pelicans jumped way up to win the Zion lottery, making their franchise outlook much better than young guys + late first rounders BUT I’m sure they would have rather kept AD since he’s a young vet playing at an All-NBA level.

    As a ref to call a delay on mage is a delay,. If I hv a team at an disadvantage which happens all game cause I basket hang, which happens all game, To make that call on an professional level is preposterous. When u don't call traveling, which happens all game, carrying, which happens all game, and stiffens to gain separation , all a big part of the game, very few calls. It's a team game and as a team if I want to defend 5 w 3 it's up to the coach or his teammates on that one not the ref...

    That’s why I like how Lebron controls his own career. I know some peeps still hold him accountable for how he left Cleveland the first time( and they should get over it now); and I agree that how he left was unwise, but not that he left. This is a business and in business you should be honest. Question: when applying for a new job, how many times have you been told after your interview, by companies/organizations, ‘we will call you’? Only to discover that they didn’t. That was a lie. I don’t want to work for an organization that can’t be trusted in the little things cause I won’t be able to trust them in the big. If the script was flipped, they wouldn’t do business with you!

    Thats why I applaud Lebron. Because he took control over his business. People call see it in a selfish way. Lebron is so calculated he waited a whole 2 years to do what he is doing today. He is that calculated. This AD situation he put in motion long before it happened.
