    The verbal leader is James Harden.

    As illustrated by the Lillard shot, James tells people to defend but doesn't actually do it himself.

    Why does a GM have a Twitter account? STFU - quit trying to be Jimmy Fallon. Really sick of this guy.

    This is the equivalent of saying "why is ______ having fun? Shouldn't he be working out or practicing? He's an NBA player."

    I'm sure he's devastated that he offended you by having a Twitter account.

    Id say you are better than this but given your tangents before with 2pat /t rob, and the Asik trade that wasn't, I guess we can just expect a 6 month OCD tangent twice a year from now on.

    However in this case this is the best player on the team that isn't going anywhere for years to come. You are going to have a VERY VERY emotionally rough year if you let this obsession continue. I just don't see how your going to be able to even watch the Rockets if you hate Harden this much.

    Morey's an executive, not a celebrity. The more he talks lately the more ignorant he sounds. Winning close games is blind luck (coin flip comment)? Coaches don't matter? It sounds like he has never competed in sports at any level.

    I know this is a joke, but does anybody have an update on this guy? Haven't heard that name in a while, is he ever going to join the team?

    Our GM thinking he's a damn celebrity is growing tiresome. I don't wanna see the Morey having fun joking on twitter after a disappointing season. I'd much rather have my GM keep a low profile, and stay outta the spotlight until called upon. I can why other GM's think Morey's ego is too big

    You are in one of the smallest minorities I've ever known. Heck, even my Laker fan friends tell me they wish Morey was their GM. His transparent via twitter and reddit is amazing. I think you just suffer from drinking too much Haterade.

    Many of us have Twitter accounts, but don't view ourselves as celebrities :confused:

    Why would Morey be any different? Next you'll want him to stop visiting clutchfans to get trade ideas :p

    It's one of the dumbest complaints someone can make. Absolutely moronic.
