Who’s response? Morey?

I thought Brand looked comfortable while Morey looked uncomfortable.

But media was really trying to hit Morey hard and trying to get some spill on what he plans to do so its understandable

Harden is a future all time great and top 3 shooting guard ever. Ben's potential is all time great caliber and he has the highest ceiling of any player on this roster with his defensive and offensive potential. That's the only type of player he's worthy of being moved for. Beal is a sexy Lavine, they're bucketgetters, but neither are spearheading a championship caliber offense like Harden will for the next 3 years at least. If you move Ben it has to unquestionably make your team good enough to compete with Lebron James / Steph Curry and Kevin Durant immediately, because the window will tighten significantly. I'm not sure Beal and Embiid are doing so.

Harden is getting old. We might only have a 2 or 3 year window with him...

Yeah fair enough I guess. Just worry about his age.

I believe morey mentioned both guys names (and also Josh Richardson, no thybulle or shake) when he was trying to state the rest of the roster but it was just one time as far as i can recall.

You cant really tell for Morey is acting he doesnt know much about the roster for it is just his “day 1”.

I hope whoever Rox GM is, he also shares the same belief with yours about Ben.

Let him have atleast a week then you interview him. That way he can’t dodge questions by saying its just on his first day.

But how do you think Ben feels about Morey’s intent to making this Embiid’s team?

Do you think Ben is OK with it?

https://www.buckscountycouriertimes.com/story/sports/2020/11/02/daryl-morey-seems-intent-making-sixers-joel-embiids-team/6115162002/

If your answer is.. “definitely, ben is OK deferring to Biid and having a team built around Biid.” Then why are we having these articles?

https://www.buckscountycouriertimes.com/story/sports/2020/11/02/daryl-morey-seems-intent-making-sixers-joel-embiids-team/6115162002/.

https://www.phillyvoice.com/sixers-daryl-morey-press-conference-joel-embiid-ben-simmons-doc-rivers-76ers-roster/amp/?__twitter_impression=true

do people think before it was “Embiid and Ben’s team” and after the Morey presscon it is now “Embiid’s team”?

Is this like the precursor to the.. ben is tradable because we are building around Biid. Not building around Biid and Ben.

To be fair with Morey, it sounds like he showed his card about building this team with Embiid but later tried to cover it up by mentioning Biid and Ben as a pair.

Found the quote

“ I'm a pretty competitive guy, but that was my plan. My wife was actually urging me to do that. But Elton and Doc and Josh were relentless, just relentless, as soon as I stepped away. Frankly, the more you look at what Elton has put together, on this roster with Joel and Ben as the headliners but with great players -- Al [Horford], Josh [Richardson], Tobias [Harris] and some of the younger players brought in last year -- I'm with Doc.

"He and I have been chatting a lot, and the more you dig into the players that are here, the more you get excited about what this team can do."

We reportedly are paying Morey $60M over the next 5 years. Josh wasn't bashful about shelling out.

Wow, he makes more than a lot of players in the league. Guess that's what you do for a super star exec.

https://rocketswire.usatoday.com/2019/09/18/daryl-morey-says-westbrook-trade-boosted-title-odds-by-30-percent/

All this RW trade talk made me do some research on RW and ask why did Morey wanted this guy..

RW is an inefficient scorer. He’s floating on 52TS%, after the 2016-2017 season (peak stat padding season). He is a horrible scorer in the playoffs with an average of 41FG% for his career.

I know people will say it’s Fertita’s fault. But Morey sounds like he wanted RW and when I was listening to a podcast (i believe its woj) that the guy being interviewed said Fertita is the one who wanted RW, Morey called the guy and told him everyone was on board with RW. Including himself.

The offseason trade of Chris Paul (and draft considerations) for guard Russell Westbrook boosted the Houston Rockets’ odds of winning the NBA championship by about 30 percent, according to GM Daryl Morey, who cited internal calculations


For the time being, let’s stick with the facts. He traded for RW and thought they’re a better team with RW.

Did he assume RW was going to play like how he did 3 years ago when he averaged 30-10-10 (2016-2017)?

But should RW’s career playoff shooting numbers should have informed him better?

Last moves Morey made on Houston didn't make him look good IMO.

I don't care about his RS stats, Westbrook never was a winning player. Also he relies a lot on athlicisim, so he's going to regress a lot and turn into a terrible contract in no time.

The trade to make them a full time small ball team was also very questionable.

I hope these moves were just made by context and having little to no options. The CP3/Harden beef really messed with his plans.
