The data showed that Embiid and the Sixers didn’t need to shoot a lot more 3s to be successful, even if Morey made history, in his Android days, running a Rockets team that set records with James Harden. Morey points out that it’s not the only way the Rockets won a boatload of games during his time there. When Morey took over the Rockets in 2007, he oversaw a highly-successful Rockets team built around Yao Ming. “Yao was maybe one of the best 10-feet-in players of all-time efficiency-wise,” Morey says. “Just like Joel.” Morey sees a lot of similarities. Embiid isn’t as tall as Yao, but his ball-handling and shooting abilities conjure similar nightmares for opponents.
CJ McCollum never expected his wine, McCollum Heritage 91, to sell out in less than an hour, but that’s exactly what happened when his Oregon pinot noir launched in mid-September. “To be honest, I don’t think it could’ve gone much better,” he said. With the launch, McCollum officially joined a group of NBA players who have their own wine labels, a list that includes Channing Frye, Dwyane Wade, and Yao Ming. But McCollum’s passion for wine has been years in the making, and it blossomed over the summer, when McCollum was living in the “NBA Bubble.” He turned his entire hotel room into a refrigerator in order to keep his collection of 84 wines at the correct temperature.
I read the Yao-Ewing-Mutombo piece every once in a while. BL: I went to a Chinese food restaurant in Toronto with Yao and Deke. In Toronto, Chinese food places are numbered like it’s easier for you to point at what you want than to say it. Deke kept pointing at whatever No. 13 was and saying in the Deke voice: “I want the Yao Ming.” And he thought it was the funniest thing ever. He said it about 15 times.
