Game of Zones special: Obama to the rescue for Hinkie

Bleacher Report’s “Game of Zones” is one of this writer’s favorite things to watch.

And the latest edition, a GoZ special created at the request Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey to open the 2018 MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference, where former President Barack Obama was the Keynote Speaker.

Among the other luminaries featured in this edition besides Obama (“a tan horse, really?” and a classic, “show us your birth certificate!”) are Charles Barkley, Sam Hinkie, Evan Turner (missing a midrange shot, “a long two,” and of course, “not clutch”), Tom Thibideau (“This heretic would force me to rest my players!”), Vlade Divac (“He forced me to make bad trade and give them all our draft picks!”), Jeff Van Gundy and that noted earth scientist, Kyrie Irving.

Count Morey among those impressed with this GoZ episode.
