Well, I don't think either one is good. But I prefer Kahn. Morey is so overrated it's absurd.

Morey steals Kevin Martin from Kings, steals Robinson from Kings....he wins almost every trade. Signs Asik when everyone thought it was foolish. Guys playing great....

The Rockets just have a mediocre team every year, then he changes the roster and gets the same result. Then does it again. Then blames the coach and hires a new one. Then does the same thing over.

Most overrated GM ever.

Morey clearly this year.
Although in fairness to Kahn, the Wolves had a bunch of injuries and never had a chance to get their main 5 together for the majority of the season.

When you sign Roy, Howard and AK you better be expecting injuries.

That's well discussed.
New York's had a lot of injuries this year as well.
Washington too.

The reason his teams are "mediocre" even is because he is such a good GM. He rapes every team in a trade. Got stuck with TMac and Yao both injured....most GM's would simply tank for 5 years but Morey brilliantly finds players to make his team above average. Collecting assets as he goes along and then dumps the assets to get the franchise player....in Harden. He'll get a 2nd star either this summer or next summer, and then in 3 years be a legit championship contender and probably still have assets to spare.

EuroLeague = Fail

Id take either over philly s .gm
It's like watching people possessed by a demon who signs big Men with injuries which are usually of the knee variety to insane deals or trade for them.

The guys collect 1st round picks and uses them on tweener forwards, trades for busts (Thabeet, Flynn, Hill,) and has absolutely mangled this offeseason. They have no point guard, 8 power forwards, and are about to overpay a Asik when they are nowhere close to contending.



Nice craptastic post in which you showcased that you don't know what the hell you're talking about.

First of all, the question was "who's better" so "neither" isn't even a acceptable response.

Second, your "lottery" argument holds zero weight.. Morey has only had the last pick in your lottery argument..The picks (especially in the 2nd round)/moves he has made have prevented the Rockets from bottoming out and tanking. he has never even been given the chance to have a "no-brainer" (like Rubio) decision dumbass. And all these "tweener forwards he's picked" have worked out and still play in the league. Hell just about every player he's picked either starts or plays in the league.. he doesn't miss and is money in the draft.

third, the guy has overturned the entire roster from last season and currently has the NBA's youngest roster in the playoff hunt..all without tanking/top picks, that in it's self destroys your ignorant argument.

P.S.

Artest isn't even in the top 5 of Morey's best moves and Asik isn't overpaid either (again further proof that you have no clue about what the hell you're talking about), for Christ's sake he's in the running for MIP

He isn't a "Kool-Aid drinker", You are just ignorant and don't know what the hell you're posting about. Name me one, just one GM who has been given the task of overturning a entire team, finding a star, whiling also building the league's youngest roster, all of which without a top pick and has said team on pace for a playoff appearance. Just name one.. I'll be sitting here waiting..

Morey has made one huge mistake, not getting Lin a veteran back up point guard who can help Jeremy Lin's development.
