As one of the league's most visible general managers, the Houston Rockets' Daryl Morey tends to interact with his team's fans more than any other general manager, so it's always cool to see the things he has to share.

Morey is the most actively tweeting general manager in the NBA, and he's always looking to have fun with his fans, even breaking down the action of each game while it's going on. 

For any Rockets fan—every basketball fan, even—he's a must-follow on Twitter. He gives an insightful look into the basketball world that we don't normally get to see.

That's why it's not really a surprise to see Morey share letters from fans with the public, but when he shares something this strange, it needs to be talked about:

For comic relief, a note I received this off-season. They are probably disappointed in @jharden13 ! twitter.com/dmorey/status/…

Not only is this a letter detailing why Luis Scola didn't fit this particular person's specific image of what a basketball player should look like, but it's a commentary on what an acceptable appearance is for an NBA player. 

I can't decide what intrigues me more, the fact that this person was okay with letting go of an extremely productive basketball player if it meant getting rid of his shaggy hair or that it seems to be written on a typewriter.

It takes some dedication, or a very old-fashioned person, to set aside the time to sit down, pull out some brand-new paper, organize his or her thoughts, type it all out, throw it into an envelope, address it and send it out, hoping Morey would see it and appreciate the recognition.

Like Morey said, I'm not so sure this fan was too excited about seeing the bewhiskered James Harden become the team's newest addition.
