Daryl Morey, general manager of the Houston Rockets, obsessed with the analysis, who firmly believes that the Raiders have won Khalil Mack's market, is back with another hot sport jack.
This time, it's his own team, which has been eliminated from the playoffs by the Golden State Warriors in two consecutive seasons.
"Against the Warriors in the last 3 years in the playoffs – Houston: 5-8," tweeted Morey. "Rest of the NBA: 5-34."

The executive then listed other teams that have faced Golden State in the last three playoff games, all worse than Houston.
A number of NBA fans quickly blamed Morey for seeking a "participation trophy".
"The Toyota Center needs a new banner," wrote a fan, accompanied by the photo of a fake banner bearing the title "Houston Rockets: pushed the warriors to 7 games, 2017-2018".
Someone else created a fake certificate of achievement aimed at elementary students, who praised the Rockets for their 5-8 playoff record against Golden State.
Another fan took a violent hit during the massive contract extension that Morey gave Chris Paul last summer.
"Money owed to @ CP3 over the next three years – Rockets: $ 124 million, rest of the NBA: $ 0," tweeted the fan.

Morey has already said that beating "the Warriors" was the "only thing we thought about," and that many of Houston's off-season moves are specifically designed to better compete with Golden State.
"It's like we have to win a 90% title, we will obviously have to beat the Warriors at some point," he said in December 2017. "So we're very focused on that. our signatures and what we do during the year is based on that. "
