The reason we are not still playing is because Morey botched last offseason completely

    Lol. His talent didn’t dip that severely in 2 years. His lack of production has been because of his attitude and ego. I bet if he bought into a system, he would be fine. Throw work ethic in there too

    i said this when people were saying we have enough to win the chip this year, after we went on a huge win run since ASG.

    dude, this team barely got put together before the post-season started. we won a lot after ASG, but that's not what we're going to see in the playoffs.

    Morey was out here telling us what we have in the post-season is not what you have in October. that's all well and good, but what's the point when the mid-season acquisitions are barely getting on the court in the post-season?

    No one was beating the Warriors if they were healthy......Lopez wouldn't even help. He might hit a few threes but that is about all he does, he doesn't rebound

    Morey has no FEEL for the game whatsoever, that has been obvious for quite sometime now.

    Our winning records are purely coincidence.... in fact they are in spite of Morey.

    Winning records are cute and all, but Not enough to get you that hardware! Morey can get you to the playoffs with his half assed efforts but that’s about it. To win a ring you need to have the IT factor. Morey does not unfortunately. Hope he proves us wrong this summer and has finally learned what doesn’t work.

    What doesn’t work by the way is building a ‘shoot only threes philosophy with NO actual shooters on your team, just so we’re clear!

    Do you really think D'Antoni system works in the playoffs? What makes you think to have a solid SF and PF that can create own shot will get a chance to showcase their strength when D'Antoni's offense depends so much on 3's? Green used to be dunker/slasher who used speed. Now he jacks up 3s. Harden used to have solid mid-range game a few years ago and now we hardly ever see him use that weapon and he rather pull up contested 3's. Ryno a PF/SF used to have solid step-back mid-range game (like Dirk) and he hardly got to showcase that when he was with the Rockets under D'Antoni. The trend I see is that D'Antoni wants 3-pointers and Morey got him players that could do just that (Gordon, Ryno, Green, Ariza etc.) but it has just not worked out for the Rockets. Under D'Antoni I feel players are diminishing value because they are all forced to use D'Antoni's system that has never adjusted even when he was with Suns and NYC.

    Morey has no Feel for the Finals.
