It took a lot of thought choosing this season’s Executive of the Year and there were two finalists, the Houston Rockets’ Daryl Morey and the New York Knicks’ Glen Grunwald. Both executives have done amazing things this year, but in completely different circumstances, based on their team’s needs. Morey traded for a star and signed two key players, while adding solid role players to the team, while Grunwald was able to assemble an incredible stable of role players around Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler, despite having very little money to work with. Although both were different and effective, Morey wins this battle as he is the only GM who was able to land a team’s franchise player this season, which is the first step in creating an elite NBA roster.
