This was over, the moment Daryl Morey stepped into this match with a dri-fit shirt on. Fact, there is nobody in this world that would wear a dri-fit shirt at an event they are terrible at. Except for P.E. teachers, but those guys can basically wear whatever they want. I don’t think I have ever seen my P.E. teacher in anything that doesn’t make him look like he lives at the school. Seriously, even his parent-teacher conference dress shirt resembles something he dug out of the lost and found. And to believe I actually wanted to be that guy in high school. There are not enough words to describe the amount of shame that I am feeling right now. Is this what rock bottom feels like? Anyways, Jeremy Lin had no chance. Just a minute into this “friendly” competition, I could already tell that Morey is a far superior table tennis player. The way he adjusts his pants to get into the ready stance, speaks for itself. Not to mention that nasty backspin on his serve, pretty good for a number crunch...

This should go a long way in squashing the stereotypes that Asians rule in table tennis.
At a fundraiser for the Jeremy Lin foundation back in the middle of February, Houston Rockets point guard Jeremy Lin took on his boss Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey in a game of table tennis and apparently he got served, although he didn’t look to be taking game too seriously.
Jeremy Lin may be the star on the basketball court in Houston, but in the table tennis arena he is not the big cheese. That title apparently belongs to Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey:
Hey, it's for charity (the Jeremy Lin Foundation)...he is the boss...I don't know. I think if they go two out of three Jeremy Lin schools him.

Earlier in the year at HoopStuff, an article was written that Houston Rockets’ GM, Darryl Morey should win the NBA’s Executive of the Year Award. This still holds true, but he has done so much more since then, that it really is no contest. After stealing Thomas Robinson from the Kings and making a brilliant waiver wire move to sign Aaron Brooks, he has all but sealed the deal...

Yao Ming, the towering ex-NBA star (of tallest player in the league during his final year, #1 draft pick, and 5-time All-Star fame) who made an immense impact during his time on the court with Houston Rockets, is proving himself as a force to be reckoned with off the court as well.Since his injury-driven retirement in July of 2011, "The Great Walking Wall" himself has done...

Of course it wasn’t by 30 plus points, but a win is a win no matter how you stroke it up, it’s still a win. Throughout...
