Rockets GM Daryl Morey exposes Colin Cowherd for James Harden-Russell Westbrook snub

Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey ripped FOX Sports’ Colin Cowherd for leaving James Harden and Russell Westbrook off his top-10 duos list inside the NBA bubble.

Cowherd had LeBron James and Anthony Davis as his No. 1 duo, but Harden and Westbrook were surprisingly nowhere to be found:

Morey went a bit further with his jab:

The Rockets are the only team in the NBA with two MVPs leading the way. However, Cowherd doesn’t believe Harden and Westbrook can get it done down in Disney World, much to the chagrin of Morey.

This is why Rockets fans love Morey, though. He doesn’t care that pretty much everyone outside of Houston hates the way the team plays. The club’s architect is going to defend his style of play and stars no matter what.

After defeating the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday, the Rockets improved to 43-25 on the season. They are now in fourth place in the Western Conference standings.

Westbrook didn’t play against the Lakers due to a bruised right quad. Houston is back in action on Sunday versus the Sacramento Kings. The Rockets will then finish their seeding games by playing the San Antonio Spurs, Indiana Pacers and Philadelphia 76ers. Westbrook’s status for these games is unknown at this point.
