    Daryl Morey

    For the past few years, the Rockets have been stuck in a rut of mediocrity — not terrible, fighting for a bottom playoff seed and either way ending up with a pick in the middle of the first round somewhere. Not a bad team, not a contender, just a team riding along in the middle.…

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    I remember seeing Andrew Bynum as a 17-year-old at Summer League — then held in Long Beach, California — just weeks after being drafted. Two things stuck out to me at those games and interviews: 1) He and his game were so immature. Raw doesn’t even do his game justice. This was raw like sharks…
