Morey in farewell ad: ‘Harden changed my life’

Former Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey took out a full-page advertisement in the Houston Chronicle on Sunday to thank the numerous people who helped him during 13 seasons with the team.

But he saved his most effusive praise for Rockets star James Harden, writing, in bold, “James Harden changed my life.”

“An entire page could be dedicated just to James,” Morey wrote. “He not only transformed my life but also revolutionized the game of basketball — and continues to do so — like almost no one has before. The game is played differently because of James, and on every playground in the world, the next generation of talent is studying and imitating his game.”

Morey brought Harden to Houston in an October 2012 blockbuster trade. The deal was one of 77 trades that Morey conducted as Rockets general manager.

Harden has gone on to win the 2017-18 MVP award and the past three scoring titles while making eight straight All-Star teams and taking the Rockets to the playoffs in each season he has been in Houston.
