The verbal back-and-forth between the LA Clippers coach Ty Lue and the Philadelphia 76ers president of basketball operations Daryl Morey has continued.

Lue explained that his words on Joel Embiid and James Harden’s frequent trips to the free-throw line were misunderstood but then also followed up with a shot at Daryl Morey, reminding him of the infamous “Hong Kong tweet” that caused quite a bit of stir up.

“They took it out of context. It was said meaning, if you continue to foul those guys, they can score 50. We want to make them score field goals, not free throws, because they’re crafty at getting to the line. But it don’t bug me.

In response to Daryl Morey, should he really be tweeting anything right now? Last time he tweeted, he cost the NBA a billion dollars. So, I don’t think he should be doing too much tweeting. Just worry about his own team.”

Morey’s remark on the free throws comment by Lue was that the LA Clippers would rank last in the league offensively without free throws and that fouls come from the inability of the defense to stop talented players.
