Daryl Morey to change his name to Yusuf Islam, abandon managerial career?

In an interview with Jason Friedman of Morey said that he did not think of himself as "Dork Elvis", the moniker supplied him by Bill Simmons, but instead as Dork Cat Stevens.  This could be an ominous sign for Rockets fans.

For those who don't know, Cat Stevens was a very successful folk singer who converted to Islam, changed his name and more or less abandoned his former mellow hippie ways, while leaving the world with some very groovy songs.  Evidently he continues to perform, but not the songs that made him famous.
