    I was thinking I should be shocked, then I wasn't. Tillman doesn't know what he is doing. I feel torn about Morey - on the one hand, I think it was way too much analytics. On the other hand, I don't know how much more you can get out of this group of players with some other GM.

    Maybe they're blowing it up? I find the timing interesting, when apparently they just met JVG yesterday and it looks like the search is narrowing...

    apparently he will be staying on in an advisory role to complete the head coaching search.

    The tweet that brought down a red nation. On the next 30 for 30.

    I wish Morey the best. He, along with harden, have orchestrated the second best run in Rockets history. Sad to see it’s falling apart.

    You're not going to find a better GM than Morey. This is depressing.

    Rafael Stone is intriguing - would love to hear any background @Nook or anyone has on him.

    This feels like the beginning of a steep decline to rock bottom.

    So we are really blowing it up. Just trade Russ and James already.

    Apologies didn’t see it on the feed on the front page. Thought I beat everyone to it.

    Unbelievable. I actually want to break stuff.

    Is it possible for us to deface Tilman's self-mural in some way?

    You gotta think the Rockets are now a radioactive organization to both free agents and our coaching search.

    No assets, broken roster, overpaid pseudo-superstar, no coach, no GM, meddling clueless owner.

    We are officially the Knicks.

    Seriously this is the start of the true Rockets dark ages. This is the apocalypse. We blew up a 60 win team for Russell Westbrook, picked up James Dolan 2.0 as an owner and lost our coach and GM.

    And right on the heels of scraping Bill O'Brien off of Houston's shoe.

    This suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucks.

    We have to root for Tilman's over-leveraged fried food empire to collapse. Which is imminently possible.

    Feigen said it was 100% his decision so this means (1) he thinks the championship window is closed, (2) he wants no part of dealing with a declining Russ and his bloated contract, and (3) he had enough of dealing with Tilman and his cost cutting.

    I am depressed. This is coming from Tilman, payback for Hong Kong tweet.

    Morey is easily one of the best GMs in the league. He's one of the reasons my fandom has grown to what it is. This is a very sad day...

    The timing reeks of Tillman dictating a coach Morey didn't want, and Morey resigning in protest.
