They're both gonna be unemployed soon enough.
Their standings position will be just good enough to ensure they get bad first-round picks, and Daryl's not a good drafter. Here are all his first-round picks as HOU GM:
That's just awful. The good players he drafted he shipped right out. Productive guys. Mirotic, Morris, Harrell, Parsons, Batum. I run a pool with a bunch of guys where we pick various things each year, one of them is First Exec Fired, and I'm going Morey this year.
D'Antoni, he does the best with what he's given and the direction Morey and the quants give him. But I think he'll be out soon too. They'll do a Toronto, where it's like we are here, on the doorstep every year, we have great regular seasons and we just don't get over the hump. Time for a reset at the coaching level.
