    I think this should be the other way around. Unless brent was supposed to sign a ridiculous contract (for the time) and get cut the next year for sucking so bad.

    Charles Jones. I remember watching him during warmups... he never missed a shot before the game.

    What exactly is the definition of "the greatest Rockets benchwarmer"? Are you talking about people that basically had no roles and just sat on the bench to rot and we can laugh about it? People who sat on the bench but the fans cheered for them to come in the game? People who came off the bench to light up the scoreboard?

    BTW, Charles Jones actually played decent minutes off the bench during the playoffs in our '95 championship run.

    Granny was amazing. Ehlo was the most prototypical 12th man though, he lived in his warmups when he was in Houston.
