Morey misunderstands the importance of chemistry on a basketball team, because we can't know exactly how it Madden Mobile 18 Coins figures into his decision making. But then we see that he drafted Royce White, that he chased the unserious Howard to pair with the unserious Harden, that he added Ty Lawson this summer. Again, we can't know exactly how chemistry and personality considerations fit into.
Morey's calculus. But based on the moves he makes, we can presume it matters less than it should. Morey did well to flip Donatas Motiejunas and Marcus Thornton for a pick, but that pick isn't going to help Houston get into the playoffs. This is the Sam Hinkie conundrum: you can win every individual trade and do nothing special in the aggregate.
That Detroit pick Morey grabbed on Thursday isn't going to help Houston beat Golden State, San Antonio or Oklahoma City in April. That pick isn't going to help Morey win his fourth playoff series in his ninth season at the helm of the Rockets. (In the aggregate, Morey's Rockets are winning an average of one playoff series every two or three seasons.)
Morey invents new ways to protect draft picks, he has innovative ways to make Cheap Madden NFL 18 Coins other teams feel salary cap pain (seeJeremy Lin and Omer Asik) and he's always on the bleeding edge with data collection. But it really doesn't take rocket science to identify superstars.
Morey wasn't the only GM to think Harden was going to be special -- he went No. 3 overall in a loaded draft, for goodness sake. Morey just had the foresight to collect the assets that the Thunder were willing to accept.And now Morey is trying to collect assets to acquire.
