That’s the only reaction I have to Marcus Hayes’ brilliant essay celebrating Sixers boss Daryl Morey in the Inky.

While the rest of the lame-ass media are questioning Morey’s sanity for being tough with James Harden, who is boo-hooing that Morey kept him in the dark about his intentions, Hayes cheers him on:

Daryl Morey is, for the moment, a Philadelphia hero.

He’s done the right thing four times now.

He waited, then got top dollar for Ben Simmons.

He didn’t hire Mike D’Antoni to coach.

He didn’t cave to James Harden’s outrageous demands, and he’s waiting to get value for Harden, too.

And now, reportedly, he has made low-cost, top-talent guard Tyrese Maxey untouchable.

Morey ignored love, embraced logic, and stood firm with Harden, who wanted $150 million and three years despite being 34 going on 64 as a diminished, diminishing player.

Harden was hurt and angry at Morey’s refusal, and now has opted in to his $35.6 million contract and demanded a trade … for the third time in three years.

Harden files for divorce like he’s Larry King.

Finally, Morey & Co. reportedly are refusing to trade Maxey, a 22-year-old who was a 43.4% three-point shooter this season.

Portland’s Damian Lillard was never coming to Philly, anyway. He’d rather be in Miami with Bam Adebayo and Jimmy Butler and incredible coffee.
