As the Warriors sit just one victory away from their fourth consecutive Finals berth, the Houston Rockets sit at home wondering what to do next. Several seasons of an 'obsessive' determination to beat Golden State has not earned them any merits.
Despite this, Houston team GM Daryl Morey took to Twitter to seemingly congratulate his Rockets team on coming close...
While it is true that his team has been amongst the Warriors hardest competitors, they have failed repeatedly to get the job done. With this tweet, no matter the intent, it sends off the wrong kind of message. Twitter was not kind to him.
To make matters worse, their window may be closed. James Harden has a wide-ranged but flawed game. Chris Paul is owed $124 million over the next three years despite going on 35-years of age.
Fact is, no matter how many more times they get "close," they will never be anything more than a memory unless they can finish the deal. Morey must know that more than anyone.
