Before I begin writing about anything that this man has done in a Rockets uniform on the court, I want all of us to remember something.
We have already done our fair share of foaming at the mouth over the incredible value Morey was able to extract at the 38th pick in the 2011 draft. His insanely cheap salary at $888,250 this season (and less than a million for the next two years) caps off a wonderful scouting job by the Rockets prior to the draft. However, I don't want to dwell on this particular financial notch in Morey's belt (Clutchfans has a great breakdown here for those interested in the contract nitty gritty though).
After all of the player evaluations, workouts, interviews, and draft day trades, Rockets fans were treated to what was, at least in my experience, the most hilarious post-hoc draft day press conference replay ever.
And I want us all to vividly remember it.
First (hilarious) thing to remember
This press conference features Marcus Morris, Donatas Motiejunas, THE Chandler Parsons, and...wait for it...Jonny Flynn (lol, remember that!). After a draft day trade with the Timberwolves, the Rockets acquired Donatas and Flynn for Brad Miller (that Brad Miller...he had seen better days) and our first round pick in this year's upcoming draft. So technically, the jury is still out on that trade but I think Dmo will end up being well worth it.
But seriously, honest question, would you rather have Jonny Flynn to join your team as the third PG or Aaron Brooks?
