Daryl Morey on tanking as an NBA-wide problem: “Teams have to go through cycles … What you want to have though is that when a team is in its rebuilding cycle, which every team goes through – we went through it after Yao Ming and Tracy McGrady – you don’t want them to sit around the table and be dreaming of ways [to get worse]. … ‘It’s not good enough to only win 25 games, to actually get the best odds, we have to win 15 games.’ It’s just bad for the league that a team in a rebuilding cycle has to think about ‘Maybe I won’t sign a free agent because, oh my goodness, that might win us a few extra games.’ … When you’re down in that rebuilding trough, you shouldn’t have to dream up more ways to be even s–ttier so that you can get the odds at a top player.”
After traveling to China to participate in clinics last year, Cauley-Stein made his return to the country following a brief trip to Vietnam earlier this summer. Alongside Carter, WCS was invited to Yao Ming’s annual charity game over the weekend in an effort to raise money for the Hall-of-Famer’s longtime charity. Yao started the fund in 2008 after a massive earthquake struck the Sichuan Province in southwestern China hoping to support sports and education in the region.
The hosts said last month when tickets went on sale that players from the San Antonio Spurs, Houston Rockets and Oklahoma City Thunder would attend the Yao Foundation charity match, which is part of the celebrations of the 20th anniversary of the handover. However, no representatives from these three teams were included when the official players’ list was announced this week.
