Daryl Morey Doesn’t Believe Rockets Are Among League’s Top Three Teams

by September 18, 2013

The Rockets have completely overhauled their roster over the last three seasons, but GM Daryl Morey still doesn’t believe they’re one of the League’s top few teams… yet. Appearing on a Houston radio station, Morey had this to say: “’I think there are probably at least three teams better than us if not more… Until you’re going into a season felling like you are the top one or two I think it’s, and we haven’t really accomplished anything, I think it’s hard to talk about ‘hey we’re one of the favorites to win the championship.’  But I do think we go in with a chance, where as we haven’t in the last few years… I think [Miami, San Antonio and OKC], I would say going in for sure are better than us, and they’ve definitely proven more. I think the Bulls and the Pacers they’re very good as well this year.  I am hoping we are in the mix with them, maybe equal quality.’”
