T. D. Williams Explains Critical Stance On Daryl Morey

T. D. Williams, Medium.com, joined MaD Radio to discuss an article he wrote on Daryl Morey. Williams explained why he has been critical of Morey because he hasn’t taken Houston “to the promised land” yet. He said he isn’t against the use of analytics in basketball, but says they have to be used careful. He said that Morey has created what he calls a “treadmill team” and doesn’t agree with his decision to not bring Chandler Parsons back. Williams said that he hasn’t felt Houston has really contended yet as they should have. He doesn’t think Morey is a terrible GM and he thinks the story has been over reported.

He said that the Rockets are not going to be contenders this year with their current lineup and will just have to try again next year. He said it’s hard to say whether or not the Rockets should have re-signed Parsons but he thinks they probably should have gone for it. Blinebury spoke about the journey the Rockets have been on so far with getting James Harden and Dwight Howard, but this situation with losing out in free agency has been a bit of a setback for the team.

Getting Reaction From Cleveland To The Return Of LeBron James

Glenn Moore, Cleveland.com, joined the Triple Threat to talk about LeBron James returning to Cleveland. He said the comparison of him returning to a lover he once spurned is over blown.

He thinks Cleveland really is the best place for LeBron James and where he is at in his career and life right now.
