Rockets Make Full Court Press 2.0 For Marcin Gortat
How serious? Right around midnight, Houston GM Daryl Morey posted a message on Facebook and Twitter imploring Rockets fans to tell Gortat how much they love him.
Here's the Tweet:
Four minutes before midnight ET, the Rockets also let loose a love letter to Gortat on the team's official Web site. It is the top story on the Web site as of 1 AM ET. (Yes, four minutes before midnight. Hmmm. The odd thing is that the post, clearly timestamped 11:56 PM ET, says Morey rang Gortat's doorbell at precisely 12:01AM ET, which indicates that Morey potentially possesses a time machine.)
Luckily for Morey, the Rockets (given Situation Yao) have a good bit of sympathy right now. Otherwise, I could see partisan fans in L.A., Salt Lake City, Portland and Dallas using firstname.lastname@example.org for evil. Regardless, neat 2.0-style begging, Rockets. I hope your own big free agent (Mr. Ron Artest) isn't too jealous of the attention paid to Mr. Gortat.
