    My favorite Maxwell moment... the time he skipped a game (I think he played for Orlando?) because he had a warrant for his arrest in the opponent's city (I think it was a game against us, but shoot, so long ago...)

    Funny reason to "miss" the team plane. Thus my favorite moment.

    Max summed it up perfectly about how we did not match up well with Seattle, but yet Jordan's Bulls teams (in their first 3-peat), couldn't match up well with us. And I did research those games, and I didn't know how much we REALLY had the Bulls' number at that time.

    We don't win that 1st Championship without Max.

    Glad he came back to Houston to celebrate the achievement with his former teammates and coaches.

    "Google it."

    That's really all that needs to be said.

    I seem to recall Jordan once saying after the Rockets beat them again, "It's a good thing we won't see that team in the finals."

    Loved his shot release. No fear! No hesitation! These 50 somethings could beat the current youngsters right now! Harden would shut down from just a look from Mad Max!

    Dawg, best interview eva!


    Glad to see Max actually enjoying everything. Seems like he's made peace and is happy. Looks like he's really matured. And you got him nailed down talking about Jordan. Great stuff!


    That was special.
