@  CC. : (29 August 2013 - 05:20 AM) I agree Morey is referring to D12 and the new bench cast. But still, I can't picture teammates as a birthday 'gift'. Sounds a little inhuman too. It's like Morey said 'here I got you new friends for your birthday because you weren't satisfied with buddy Delfino'. Teammates are people not material gifts aren't they? Haahaha. It just sounds off to me
@  ale11 : (28 August 2013 - 06:35 PM) It would be pretty morbid to tell Lin via twitter that he is gonna get traded that way...looking at it positively, it meant "I got you DH12 and a bunch of shooters, go nuts with the PnR and show your worth".
@  Rahat Huq : (28 August 2013 - 11:20 AM) pretty sure he meant the new guys we've already acquired
@  CC. : (28 August 2013 - 03:00 AM) In Morey's birthday tweet to J.Lin...he mentioned Lin getting 'new teammates'...are these teammates in a Rocket uniform? Or are they new 'new' teammates? This might get some hopes up for the guys wanting Lin out
@  timetodienow... : (20 August 2013 - 01:15 AM) Good insight, ST.
@  Sir Thursday : (19 August 2013 - 10:12 PM) On a radio show or TV interview you have a lot less time to police yourself. In a forum like an AMA, Morey has much more time to decide what responses are OK and doesn't have to be so guarded. That's my hypothesis, anyway.
@  timetodienow... : (18 August 2013 - 09:42 PM) I can see that. He's always very circumspect when he's talking on camera compared to doing these AMAs. I don't think he's uncomfortable speaking but he's more in his element chatting online.
@  feelingsuper... : (18 August 2013 - 04:23 PM) I think you're on to something timetodie but I wouldn't say he is uncomfortable speaking, we just gleam more insight from what he writes.
@  timetodienow... : (16 August 2013 - 10:35 PM) Has anyone noticed that Morey is more comfortable typing than speaking?
@  2016Champions : (16 August 2013 - 08:53 PM) Daryl Morey's reddit AMA today: http://www.reddit.co...eason_addition/
@  Sir Thursday : (16 August 2013 - 06:54 PM) (Although having said that, Cleveland and Washington being improved mean that there might actually be some competition towards the bottom of the Eastern Conference playoff bracket for once).
@  Sir Thursday : (16 August 2013 - 06:53 PM) They may end up with the 8th seed again this year, but they'll be a team on the up rather than a team that's reached its peak.
@  Sir Thursday : (16 August 2013 - 06:52 PM) That's a lot of shooting, anyhow. And they've filled the bench with serviceable players, too.
@  Sir Thursday : (16 August 2013 - 06:49 PM) (or maybe you put Gary Neal in for Delfino)
@  Sir Thursday : (16 August 2013 - 06:48 PM) It's not a roster completely devoid of talent, anyway. Knight/Mayo/Delfino/Ilyasova/Sanders seems like a reasonable starting lineup.
@  Sir Thursday : (16 August 2013 - 06:45 PM) A lot depends on if they can develop their young guys. Knight, Henson, Antetokounmpo...
@  timetodienow... : (16 August 2013 - 06:41 PM) Although this signing does make them look better to me.
@  timetodienow... : (16 August 2013 - 06:40 PM) Maybe. I don't really care all that much, but it just seems like he's being underpaid. And why would he want to stay in MIL? Have you seen the moves they've made thus far.
@  Sir Thursday : (16 August 2013 - 06:36 PM) A player with 7 years' experience qualifies for a bigger max contract, right? Maybe he's angling for that
@  timetodienow... : (16 August 2013 - 06:33 PM) I hope he has an ETO. That would make the deal make sense in my mind. Otherwise why not play next year and get offered the max by a desperate team and have MIL match?

As most of you know we recently had to address the issue of racism here on Red94.  I would like to take a moment to address a few things in that regard.


First, thank you for bringing it to our attention as quickly as possible.  As moderators, we try to stay on top of what happens here as best we can, but there will always be gaps so it helps when people use the report post option to alert us that the site needs our attention.


Red94 has and always will strive for a higher standard--in all regards.  This includes, but is not limited to, well-thought out posts about basketball, being respectful of each others' opinions, and being respectful of each others' humanity.


It is this last point which I would like to focus on now.  Due to the recent comments about Jeremy Lin a one week ban is being issued (unsure if it has gone into effect yet as we hit a software snag--but very soon).  We have communicated via private message and expect that this will not be a problem moving forward.


I am also counting on each of you to ensure that this issue is put to rest.  I have already begun to see the backlash from this towards the offending member and I will say right now this WILL NOT BE TOLERATED.  There will be no hive-mind destruction of this man's character.  I implore each of you to individually take stock of what was said, decide for yourself if you want to forgive one man's mistake or if he should forever bear that scarlet mark in your mind.  Whichever you choose, keep it personal and keep it off of these boards.  We have a block feature that can be accessed multiple ways which can be used.  If you feel that you cannot continue to interact with this member please use it.


On a personal note, I would like to say that I am for forgiving this member.  I do not think he is a racist; rather, I think he is a man that made a joke in very poor taste.  To cast blanket statements around that insinuate as much reflects more strongly on the accuser than the accused.  It is hate-mongering (which is what we are trying to avoid, right?) and should not be tolerated.  We are all adults that can think and decide for ourselves how to react to this.  Again, this is not an opportunity to gang up on anyone and I will be watching to ensure this does not occur.  A racist statement was made--let's not make that into more than it is.


If anyone has questions or would like to address this further with me, or anyone else, please use the PM (private message) function. Thanks for reading.
