    DM will win it this year, though Warriors, 76ers and Celtics have much better future.

    It seems like every thread I read you have a **** post in. Guess it's just bad luck on my end.

    I remember some insiders mentioning it was too political for him to be considered a favorite.

    Just have to win a ship instead.

    Morey deserves it. Not just for this year, but for the body of work he put in over many years to build the team we have today.

    “Executive of the Year” is misleading. You don’t build a great team in a single year.

    Hinkie set the 76ers up with that future and he worked under Morey. Thus, Morey set that future up for them. Ainge hired Morey for his secrets so he's also responsible for the Celtics. Kerr's offense is thanks to D' Antoni who Morey hired so Morey retroactively is responsible for the Warriors.

    Ball Scientific Method.

    It is very political and there is a LOT of resentment and dislike for Morey so I still don't expect him to win it.

    Noel plus a future 1st round pick which I think eventually turned into Saric plus other trade assets.

    Please explain how the Warriors have a much better future than the Rockets. Use of science preferred.

    Noel and another 1st round pick.

    If they had kept Holiday, they still would have been terrible, but maybe not terrible enough to draft Embiid or eventually Simmons.

    Holiday is a hell of a player, but he's not a build your franchise around him good. They had to get terrible, you don't do that by keeping good players.
