After watching this video, one thing is abundantly clear: Rockets GM Daryl Morey takes his table tennis very seriously.

And you know what? It’s awesome. Some are bound to give Morey grief for his intense approach to a match at a charity event, but he looks to be a good player and clearly has put the time in on his table tennis game. What harm is there in him teaching Jeremy Lin a thing or two, all in the name of charity, a photo op and some good competition?

Now, if his coach would quit benching Lin with the game on the line in the 4th quarter, in favor of the rookie, Beverley, Houston might win some of the close ones. Lin is a devastating player in the 4th, an in the closing minutes of games. He also has the potential to explode for a slashing drive, taking some heat off Harden. Last night, at Dallas, it cost Houston the game.
