Daryl Morey ▸ Facts ▸ Comments ▸ News ▸ Videos
Daryl Morey is an American sports executive who is the general manager of the Houston Rockets of the National Basketball Association (NBA). 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. This style has been dubbed "Moreyball", as a nod towards Michael Lewis's Moneyball.
