Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey had some free time today:
Long flight to D-League Showcase with wifi, if you have a question I would be happy to answer it #GoRockets— Daryl Morey (@dmorey) January 14, 2015
At first, things started out great. Morey was having fun talking about 4-on-5-basketball, his Super Bowl pick, and even Into the Woods. He was really getting on a roll!
I am curious, they haven't tried it yet RT @BlandNotSpicy what do you think of Vivek Ranadive's pet 5-on-4 cherry picking strategy?— Daryl Morey (@dmorey) January 14, 2015
Packers, I was born in Wisconsin RT @Titan27279 who do you want to win the Superbowl?— Daryl Morey (@dmorey) January 14, 2015
As you can see, it was a great moment for the NBA: a GM, being a man of the people, chatting away about sports, strategy and—wait, what?
No, it is like being a gynecologist, you don't get sick of it RT @chriswk14 does having a job in bball make you sick of watching it?— Daryl Morey (@dmorey) January 14, 2015
Not surprisingly, Morey signed off from the impromptu Q&A on the very next tweet.
I am good with that. Losing wifi, thank u 4 the questions! RT @travis_alford12 I'll be your successor when u win multiple championships— Daryl Morey (@dmorey) January 14, 2015
Smooth move, Daryl. Too bad Twitter never forgets!
In fairness, Daryl isn't paid to be funny. He's paid to assemble the least likable team in NBA history, and dammit, he's doing his job.— Farmer Jones (@thefarmerjones) January 14, 2015

The Rockets are like chlamydia.— RUSS BENGT$ON (@russbengtson) January 14, 2015
Clearly, Morey's work in the NBA is a true labor of love.
