    Morey is s guest speaker for my MBA class and we’re doing a 15 minute Q&A with him. What would you ask him?

    1) After the GSW series, what was the biggest takeaway....what did you learn from that series? Aside from CP's injury, what were the shortfalls in how we played that need to be shored up for this season?

    You don't know what you don't know. How often do they analysis their analytics?

    Now that the Warriors are pretty much unbeatable, do you ever consider blowing up the roster and trusting the process?

    I just would like to know the "takeaways" from that GSW series. What did they learn about themselves? How they played. What "more" they need to do. And does that translate into getting different types of players.

    My guess is they confirmed how important defense was. And realized even more that just about every player on the court has to be 2 way players that can put the ball on the floor. Perhaps that "just stand still" shooters aren't enough.

    - What are your expectations with Zhou Qi for this season? Is the team going to push him like they did with Capela?
    - It was Ariza overrated from an advanced stats standpoint? Is he that irreplaceable?
    - Who has surprised you the most this Summer League? What about Adel's future?
    - Melo its been an unefficient shooter as of lately... Why do you think he could work in Houston?

    If the traditional NBA center is no longer valued by the league, why does the league over-pay them?

    Does he or the league have any ideas in place to modify salary cap structures/calculations to help ensure parity and preserve competitive balance? Or is this something they dont really see as a long term problem. Or is it one of those situations where you cant stop players from doing what they want (taking discounts to team up).

    Figured money questions would be better...but if youre in school in houston id also want to know why FAs dont wanna come to htown :(

    Also, depending on the scope of the Q&A it’d be cool to know if his principles in analytics could be applied to a sport like soccer. He’s done such a great job keeping the rockets competitive and finding quality contributors...Basically, does he think his principles could help the US compete better longterm in a world sport like soccer. or are any similar analytic strategies being used between bball/baseball/soccer.

    Do you expect the gap to have widened or have been narrowed between GSW and HOU by April 2019?

    What has Harden added to his game this summer?

    Is Paul going to trim down?

    Is BJ Armstrong’s affiliated agency your favorite?

    Do you expect Nene to have a bounce back year?

    Is PJ much more effective as a 4 than a 3?

    Did Philly bring you an ipad?
    And how much did they offer?

    We only have one elite shooter and that guy was unplayable.
    Why did we bring meddling shooters?

    How would he deal with the Kawhi situation?

    Take your pick.

    Any closer or more likely to signing a “highly rumored player”?
