Daryl Morey, General Manager of the Houston Rockets, calls in to discuss James Harden’s hot start to the season and how much value the organization places upon his production (spoiler: it’s an asymptotic function). What would be a successful season for the organization when all is said and done? Is Daryl Morey really helping to create a musical (spoiler: yes, he actually is, and it’s amazing)? Kevin and Austin also delve into the NBA MVP race – a two-man race between Harden and Westbrook at the moment – and the Texans and the disappointing slate of semifinal College Football Playoffs matches.
Paul Gallant, host of SportsRadio610’s Gallant at Night, joins the show to talk Houston Texans. The Texans are the AFC South champions for the second consecutive year, but what is the team’s ceiling with Tom Savage under center? Has the ascendancy of Savage re-energized a depleted, worn-down fan base in Houston? Was Rogue One any good? Reasonable minds may differ, but Gallant shares some strong takes with Austin and Kevin. The guys also talk College Football Playoffs, Rockets and the NBA Hall of Fame, which features two Houston figures – Rudy Tomjanovich and Tracy McGrady – up for election. Is it good for the Rockets? Listen in and find out.
