    As most of you know, Morey is at Las Vegas Summer League and has a deep love for table tennis. So naturally, he decided to make good use of his time and enter the St. Jude Table Tennis Challenge. Can you guess who won?

    Here's the Bracket:
    [​IMG]
    Yes, that is Scotty Brooks, Rich Cho, Hawks PG Dennis Schroder and none other than Ryan "DA GERMANATOR" Bowen!

    Scotty Brooks vs. Rich Cho

    Morey wins the first round and stops for a friendly match vs Schroder (need a PG?)

    Alas, Morey vs. Ryan Bowen wasn't meant to be; updated bracket:

    Morey was in pure closer mode in the finals.

    Under Armor is totally cashing in on their Daryl Morey sponsorship. Best $10 million they've ever spent.

    If you look closely at Rich Cho, he's decked out in Jordan gear

    Does he treat himself as a tennis table asset or player?

    Does this at least partially lift the shroud of darkness that has been hanging over Morey this offseason?

    Well at least one Rocket won something this year.

    DM looks like a large man with a little bit of athletic ability.
