Ben Simmons just latest in long list of clashes for Daryl Morey

NBC Sports


Article Summary:

Morey has always chased stars first and used stats to do it – nobody recognized the potential of James Harden before Morey did. “

Carmelo Anthony

His 10 games with the Rockets in 2018 proved to be the rock bottom of Anthony’s career – but not before Morey had spent the offseason hyping up Anthony and the fit with Harden and the Rockets.

“Oh, all good business is personal. Trust me, there’s nobody more competitive than me. Every bit of me wanted to kick ass and I would have felt bad. Obviously they got Dwight Howard a couple of years ago. Yeah, I wanted to beat him. And that’s a compliment to him. Daryl is very smart. It was very much like a game of chess.”

Royce White

Daryl Morey called White arguably the “Worst first-round pick ever.” That was very unfair to White, who pushed for accommodations for mental-health conditions that Morey and the Rockets did not comply with.

However, Morey and the Rockets built up a narrative of rebellion and non-compliance around White, who never wore a Rockets jersey in a game.
