Daryl Morey Biography
Daryl Morey was born 1972 and is an American sports executive. He has been the general manager of the Houston Rockets of the National Basketball Association since 2007. He is a strong proponent of analytical methods, having created the "true shooting percentage" statistic, and co-founded the annual MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference. Morey's basketball philosophy, heavily reliant on analytics, favors three-point field goals over mid-range jumpers, has been dubbed "Moreyball", as a nod towards Michael Lewis's Moneyball.
His hiring followed the Moneyball trend of employing more advanced statistical-based analysis in addition to the traditional use of qualitative scouting and basic statistics. Several teams have hired executives with non-traditional basketball backgrounds, but the Houston Rockets were the first NBA team to hire such a general manager. However, in 10 years as general manager, Morey has yet to have a team make an NBA Finals. In his tenure, the Houston Rockets have lost in the First Round four times, in the Second Round two times, in the Conference Finals one time, and missed the playoffs entirely three times.
Morey is the co-chairperson for the annual MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference. He is also an avid Esports supporter and has attended MLG (Major League Gaming) events.
