    The JVG thread in the dish brought me to a point

    There is only one former rocket I just truly don't like . . . .Snotty No-Tippin Pippen

    beyond that . . . I am pretty good with all the rockets past and present

    Once a Rocket . . . always a Rockets
    except for Snotty Drippin Pippen

    No one else comes to mind now

    As analysts, I don't like Charles Barkley or Kenny Smith. They go out of their way to be critical of the Rockets.

    Moochie, I was so glad when we got rid of him, then so sad when we got him back, then so happy when we got rid of him again.

    Outside of Quitten, the only player I disliked was Cato because he was so lethargic on the court, but he redeemed himself in his final season here, and made for good trade bait for TMac. I didn't really like Mo Taylor and Eddie Griffin because they had so much potential and wasted it, but I cannot say that I truly disliked them.

    Pippen basically blamed Barkley for their first round exit via the Lakers back in 1999, depsite not doing much himself other than standing around the three-point line and getting abused by Kobe Bryant. To be fair, Pippen's back was completely shot and our expectations shouldn't have been so high, but he was flat out wrong in calling out Charles who really gave his all that year. IIRC, he also lobbied to get traded to the Lakers.

    It would have been interesting to see how things would have played out had he not quit on the team. They actually had a pretty good year all things considered and adding Francis could have kept them in the hunt if Olajuwon and Barkley could have managed to stay healthy (yeah huge it).

    Agreed.

    Although after several years I'm still in mild shock that Oakley ever played for us (even if briefly).
