Daryl Morey made a pricey, two-word mistake on Thursday.

The 76ers’ first-year president of basketball operations tweeted a screenshot of Stephen Curry lauding his youthful brother, 76ers guard Seth Curry, for his team-high 30 factors in Wednesday’s series-clinching win over the Wizards. Stated Stephen Curry: “Aye you (Seth Curry) … you killed tonight.”

Morey additionally included the caption, “Be part of ’em,” which appeared to encourage the elder Curry to staff up along with his brother in Philadelphia. Inside minutes, he defended the tweet as nothing greater than “speaking about the truth that we’re all thrilled (Seth Curry) is right here with the (Sixers) — nothing else!”

However the harm was already finished. The NBA on Monday hit Morey and the 76ers group with $75,000 fines every as a part of the league’s anti-tampering guidelines. For these counting, every of Morey’s phrases value $75,000.

It is arduous to see how Morey meant something apart from suggesting Stephen Curry staff up with youthful brother Seth. It is attainable he was commenting on how the elder brother was leaping on Philadelphia’s bandwagon — the groups cut up their two conferences in 2020-21, with solely the 76ers making it to the playoffs — however that looks like a stretch.

It is also value noting that Morey, common supervisor of the Rockets from 2006-20, was hit with a $50,000 high-quality for a since-deleted tweet on Dec. 28, 2020 that concerned James Harden, who performed in Houston from 2012-20.

Maybe the third time is the appeal for Morey.
