    What the hell did Neil Olshey do to deserve 2 1st place votes?

    Warriors got their major award, making room for Harden to get his!

    What the hell?! Portland over the Rockets? Based on what? Steve Blake, Chris Kaman, and Aaron Afflalo? Compare that to the acquisitions of Jason Terry, Josh Smith, and Corey Brewer plus the drafting of Clint Capela. Those vote tallies are a joke.

    GS made 0 moves this season besides hiring a new coach.
    Cleveland got Lebron to sign, congrats, but then made some bad trades IMO.
    But apparently that's what the Executive award means.

    Looks like no one batted for Morey on twatter

    Maury loves to take a hit for all his guys - McHale, Harden etc on twatter through his self promotion but it's unfortunate Les is too old to use twatter to bat for Murray

    2013-2014 Playoff Roster
    Out: Jeremy Lin, Chandler Parsons, Omer Asik, Isaiah Canaan, Omri Casspi, Robert Convington, Troy Daniels, Francisco Garcia, Jordan Hamilton, Josh Powell

    2014-2015 Playoff Roster
    In: Trevor Ariza, Corey Brewer, Joey Dorsey, Nick Johnson, K.J. McDaniels, Clint Capela, Kostas Papanikolaou, Pablo Prigioni, Josh Smith, Jason Terry

    Obviously, some of these players are less impactful than others but I mean, LOOK AT THIS

    Bob Myers hiring Steve Kerr trumps everything else. At the end of the day, all that matters is playoff success for the Rockets, not awards sponsored by Kia.

    Hmm. Morey let's go of a coveted free agent in the off season, people spell Houston's downfall into irrelevance. Morey flips Asik for a pick and uses room to acquire Brew, Smith, KJ and others. Houston beats projections of an 8th place finish, and is only 2nd to a team that has suffered no key injuries. Oh, and Houston has a crap ton of injuries to key players... and the guy who has a team with no real injuries, no major moves, and basically nothing for him to do wins Executive of the Year. Got it. Cool..

    The Rockets made a lot of changes, but at the end of the day, they went from 54 wins to 56 wins. Injuries should be considered but are probably not for the most part.

    GS, Cleveland, and Atlanta all made massive leaps in their win total.

    Cleveland went from joke to contender with two free agency pick ups.
    It should be them.

    Chicago GM should be next in line. Rockets should be third.

    Then explain Portland. They won fewer games than last season. Yet they finished ahead of the Rockets.

    When you consistently ass-rape the very people who are expected to vote for you on a meaningless award, don't expect to win said award.

    Good problem to have, I'd say?

    Eh - when you're talking about 3 or 4 random votes, it's just statistical noise. If 1 voter had done it differently, they'd have flipped. For all we know, the Portland GM voted for himself. Nobody outside the top 3 got any votes of significance.
