“I think it’s a really good team that they’ve put together,” James said of the 76ers. “Give a lot of credit to [general manager] Elton Brand and the things that they’re doing here. Obviously, Doc has always won pretty much wherever he’s been. We’ll see as the season goes on. There’s going to be a lot of teams in the Eastern Conference playing championship basketball down the stretch. I know they believe that they’re one of those teams.”
How do you see the front office hierarchy with regards to GM Elton Brand? Will you be making decisions jointly, or does Brand come to you and you make the final call? Does it depend on the decision? Will you be making the big moves with Brand focused on the day to day? Would love to hear your answer, thank you. Daryl Morey: Elton and I have been collaborating very closely — I think he has a chance to be one of the great GMs with his skill set. On top of that he has the unique background of being a top NBA player — all else equal with a GM you would want someone who was a former NBA player — it helps in many aspects of the job. I feel like it has been a great partnership where we are learning from each other. I like giving staff huge responsibility as it helps them develop — I take a small amount of pride there are 6 front offices that are run by folks with Houston ties now.
