The much touted and surprising for many ‘small ball’ of the Houston Rockets received another dagger to the heart with the news that General Manager (GM) Daryl Morey resigned to continue in his position for the 2020/21 season of the NBA.
The Rockets not only lost Morey, but a few weeks ago too team coach Mike D’Antoni left the project, who was in charge of the Houston franchise from the beginning of the 2012-13 season. Everything seems to indicate that the team is falling apart …
Will it be the turn for Russell Westbrook o James Harden Also jump ship the Rockets? Generally speaking, the Houston team would lose more than it would gain if it let go of one of its two stars, even if they did so to ease the team’s finances.
Right or wrong, the Rockets reached the semifinals of the Western Conference and despite little and nothing they competed with Los angeles lakers, they only won one game, both Harden and Westbrook were the most prominent players on the team from Houston during the season just ended.
James Harden led the franchise in points per game 34.9, assists 7.5 and steals 1.8; while Russell Westbrook he stood out by being the first on the team in rebounds per game with 7.9. So if the Houston Rockets fall apart don’t worry because ‘The Beard’ and Russ they have a back to endure and get out of this situation. For now, they are not leaving ship.
