    My favorite Rocket since the championship years. I thought, or hoped, he'd remain with the team for life. I still think there is a good chance we haven't seen the last of Chuck Hayes as part of the Rockets organization.

    crap. I blame this on Adelman. He was too good of a coach and got the most out of Hayes. Had McHale been coach last year, this never would have happened.

    anyhow. at least he is back near Modesto

    enjoy yourself Chuck!

    Thank you Chuck, from those 10 day contracts to the charge you took on BRoy(which made him retire btw) and the 22 game winning streak and the defense on KG. You are a true Rocket and I hope one day you come back.

    This is really sad. Chuck was one of the main reasons that I watched Rockets games even when I knew the team wouldn't win. That guy is pure class, pure heart, pure hustle. He exemplified what we want Rockets basketball to be. He was a success story. Etc etc.

    It's going to hurt watching him play with a bunch of scrubs on another team.

    Farewell, Chuckwagon. First fire, then wind, now earth, all gone. (Bullardism, hehe).

    I'm going to miss Chuck's hustle on defense.

    Sad news. The Rockets will enjoy the cap flexibility but boy will Chuck Hayes be missed.

    I for one will not miss all the missed layups, ridiculous FTs, and 4 on 5 offense. Good riddance.

    So, I figured it was time for me to contribute to this thread.

    Chuck not only brought me to the Rockets, he helped me to love them. His dedication to winning continued from Lexington, through Albuquerque, to Houston and now beyond.

    It will really be hard to see him shutting Scola down instead of passing to him on a cut, but I still thank him for taking a charge in the first Utah series... the week of his son's birth.

    I thank him for working so hard to improve his shooting and the joy of watching his first triple double.

    I thank him for the toughness to step up multiple times when Yao went down... most especially for the ride that was the 22 game streak and the Lakers playoff series

    I thank him for the multiple times he took upon himself the challenge of stopping the other teams best big man, despite the "short" comings he had in facing them.

    And I thank him for helping me to find all you fine people here at Clutchfans.. fear not, I will still be a Rockets fan, though it's going to hurt something fierce when he's on the Kings bench playing them :)
