    Not sure why these guys were selected by the team, but Damn they were fun to watch and easy to root for. Apologize in advance for the misspelling of the names, but we know who they are.who are your unsung Rocket Heroes.

    Scrub the floor with the Scrubs.

    Bobby is not one of them, he is with the Ladies.

    Not sure how OP is defining 'glue guy' but I can confidently say nobody on his list qualifies -- with the possible exception of Bobby Sura.

    A glue guy has all the intangibles and team strengths that usually go unnoticed on the stat sheet. Their mere presence on the floor (and locker room) contribute greatly to winning.

    Glue guys of the past 30 years:

    PJ Tucker
    Trevor Ariza
    Patrick Beverley
    Shane Battier
    Dikembe Mutumbo
    Chuck Hayes
    Mario Elie
    Robert Horry
    Larry Smith

    Glue guys perfectly compliment roster construction -- especially with regard to franchise players and playmakers. They knock down the open shot and do the dirty work like scramble for loose balls and sacrifice their bodies to make plays on defense.

    Their intelligence far exceeds their skill set and they are the ultimate ''team-first" guy.

    I imagine they are all chilling in their home theater rooms binge watching Netflix.

    This is correct. That list above with the exception of Eddie Johnson and Bob Sura is nothing but a bunch of bench warming scrubs.

    Carl Landry should be added to the list, and my personal favorite Cat Mobley. Jim Jackson was a glue veteran too.
