    Was at the Warriors game when he got the triple double. Never cheered so hard for anything in my life.

    This one hurts.

    A guy who was the heart and soul of the team and helped us to become the over achieving group we were as we suffered through our various injuries.

    Keep working on that free throw stroke and mid-range jumper, big fella. Show everyone that you're worth even more than $21 million. Enjoy the riches that you have truly earned. Your passion, leadership, and toughness will be missed.

    Keep on rollin' Chuckwagon!

    Damn this depresses me. One of my all-time favorite Rockets. I'm happy that he got a nice contract, but it's going to bum me out so much to see him playing for someone else. I hoped to see him retire a Rocket.

    The fact that we were looking to keep him and might have done so on a revamped team if not for Stern just makes it worse.

    The end of the lockout was supposed to be joyous. Instead I'm more glum that I've been about basketball and the Rockets in a very long time.

    Chuck provided some of the best memories in what has been a mediocre time for the Rockets. Gonna miss the Chuckwagon.

    I never post in these things... but HAYES! He was the man. When y'all hated him, I loved him. When the team started the season like crap I only watched for Hayes. He played tough every night.

    Grit.

    Toughness.

    Professionalism.

    Relentlessness.

    Consistency.

    Heart.

    Passion.

    Desire.

    Hayes!!!!!!

    I don't have a reason to watch this team right now. I don't enjoy their style of basketball. I just watch because I'm a Rockets fan.

    Hayes!!!

    Especially since Morey seems to turn over our roster every year or so. Nothing against that but seems like we have new players every season for the last few seasons trying to gain "assets"

    Surprised by the low number of posts here, seems like Carl Landry was missed more.
