What a difference a year makes!

On July 6th of last year a pretty scathing piece by Andrew Sharp called Daryl Morey, The Genius Who Outsmarted Himself ran in SB Nation. At that time our GM was pretty much the but of every joke out there and our plight was looked at with pity or worse by the rest of the league.

I suggest you read that item now, (it will open in a separate tab), and then think a moment about what happened within a year of that article. We all know what happened within a year of that pronouncement of abject failure. One of the most telling things about the turnaround is the hiring of a Houston front office guy as GM of Philly. Remember it was only a year ago that all that analytic stuff was pretty roundly trashed in those parts.

If you are as bored at work as I am, (slow time in the fitness biz), give the article a read and chime in with your take on the year that was.

No cursing in title. No pirated material, such as links to online game streams. Do not cut/paste entire sections of content from other websites. Thanks.
