Daryl Morey can't talk tanking

By Henry Abbott

On Rockets.com, Jason Friedman asked the Rockets general manager, Daryl Morey, what he thought about tanking.

His response had a lot to do with his relationship with the league office, a little to do with pornography and nothing to do with the GM's thoughts on tanking.
There’s been a lot of talk in TrueHoop and places like that about eradicating tanking. Do you even care about whether or not it’s addressed?

I don’t know if I can address that directly. Yeah, I do care. I have a lot of thoughts but I don’t think I’m allowed to talk about it. I could talk about it but then you’d have to edit it all out. This section would end up being like Debbie Does Dallas on PBS – it’d be three minutes of a two-hour movie.
