Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey admitted that there is pressure on the team to win a championship with James Harden and Russell Westbrook in the roster.
Morey joined “First Things First” and opened up on the pressure to win it all, if the NBA season returns.
“Basketball pressure wise, it’s a lot,” Morey said. “Again, two of the greatest players ever on our team, we should win this thing.”
Daryl Morey was never shy on expectations, believing that he should have done a better job building a winning roster around James Harden.
“We’ve worked together for eight or nine years now and I couldn’t have a better partner to try and win a title with,” Morey noted. “And in fact, most days I wake up saying, ‘I’ve let him down because I haven’t gotten him the right players to win a title.’”
