On the afternoon of October 15, Beijing time, Houston Rockets general manager Darryl Morey announced that he would step down from all positions in the Rockets on November 1.
Morey stated that the time spent managing the Rockets is "the most satisfying experience in my career" and he is confident that Houston will "continue to maintain a high level of performance" in the future.
Previously, some of Morey’s personal language improperness caused huge economic losses to the Rockets, including sporting goods company Li Ning and Shanghai Pudong Development Bank. These were the Rockets’ sponsors and partners at the time and immediately terminated their partnership. . Of course, even so, the Rockets boss still referred to Morey as "the best general manager in the league" after the dispute.
In this resignation, Morey said: his relationship with the Rockets "has been very happy", but because of differences in the team's strategy or direction, he proposed to resign.
As the general manager of the Rockets, Morey is an aggressive general manager in the player market, completing 77 transactions during his 13-year tenure.
In September of this year, shortly after the Houston Rockets were eliminated from the playoffs, Rockets owner Feitita once said that Morey’s job was “safe,” and he was convinced that after the Rockets coach D'Antoni’s contract expired, Morey Will "choose the right head coach." But now it seems that these words are just talking.
In this year's NBA Finals, CCTV chose to resume playing the finals G5 and G6 games. As the saying goes, the Prophet Chunjiang Plumbing Duck, it is also possible that the high-level officials have received the news that the Rockets have dealt with Morey.
The sudden rebroadcast of CCTV shocked and delighted many fans. After all, for the sudden opening of the broadcast of CCTV, many fans also said at the time whether CCTV had compromised. Now it seems that they have actually received good news, so they resolutely chose to resume broadcasting.
In the end, Morey's resignation is also likely to indicate that the Rockets are about to rebuild, and even the "Magic Ball Theory" ceases to exist and becomes history. In the past ten years of the Rockets, they have maintained their competitiveness in the West. Obviously, Morey's departure may become an opportunity for the Rockets to transform again.
