Everyone is a fan of watching the NBA playoffs, including the president of basketball operations for the Philadelphia 76ers.
That was obvious on Tuesday night as Daryl Morey took to Twitter to make a funny, light-hearted comment about another game.

While watching the Minnesota-Memphis game, Morey had a remark about the massive amount of free throws.
Commenting on the 33 free throws in the first quarter (a tie for the most of any first quarter in any game over the last 25 years) Morey had a clear message for both teams: “stop fouling.”
Morey has a point: there were a lot of fouls in the game.
But isn’t that what people expected?
Minnesota Vs Memphis
When the two teams were set to face off against each other, many people said Memphis and Minnesota would make a scrappy competition.
These are two young, energetic teams who are known for their speed and physicality.
They are also known for going to the foul line often because of that.
Both teams also have a lot to prove and that is leading to a lot of intense playing.
The Grizzlies have risen through the ranks of the West and are trying to show that they can go all the way to the Finals, despite a crowded, more experienced field.
Meanwhile, the Timberwolves are finally back in the playoffs after years of being written off and ridiculed.
They worked hard and clawed their way to the seventh seed, surprising everyone.
Both the Grizzlies and Timberwolves are fighting with heart and soul in order to prove themselves even more.
Of course, this means there will be quite a few fouls.
But it also means we are getting some exciting, rough-and-tumble basketball.
