    Pig Miller, Chucky Brown and Stanley Roberts when he wasn't on the juice.

    Zan Tabak & Chris 'Aussie MVP' Jent...Royce White would've been my top choice, but dude didn't even make the bench!

    Zan Tabak actually did alright, for the few minutes he did get to play in Houston. He was terrible on the Raptors though.

    I remember the Rockets expected big things from Brent Price when they signed him away from teh Washington Bullets, and didn't deliver. Only reason why Brent had such a great season with the Washington Bullets before the Rockets wasted that money on him , was because Chris Webber, Young Rasheed Wallace, and Juwon Howard's post games all created very easy open looks for Brent Price and Tim Legler. Bullets/Wizards management were some idiots for breaking that team up. Sucks that Brent Price's jumper magically disappeared after signing with Houston.:mad:

    The one guy I remember people having a gas about everytime he entered the game was Charles Jones. If he did ANYTHING to get on the box score, be it a rebound, block, or missed tip-in, then the announcers went wild. I play NBA2K as the '94 Rockets now, and I don't think I've seen him in the game yet. They usually just put in Thorpe (or Bullard LOL) to play C for the 2 minutes per game that Olajuwon doesn't stay out there.

    The worst benchwarmers of all time were any former Jazz that we later obtained, guys like Antoine Carr and Shandon Anderson. Seriously, screw em. That was not fun. It felt like the Ed Reed signing, where they weren't contributing anything positive to the team but still collecting a paycheck. That's almost the way I feel about Ronnie Brewer now, bless his heart, if only he still had his Utah legs. How the hell does he look so old at age 28?

    Look at that smooth player. He was Chandler Parsons before Chandler Parsons. He could be CP25's daddy.

    All those guys played, and they're all from a 3 year window. This shiz is ALL TIME! Bench warmers would be Zan Tabak or Serge Zwikker.

    Two Sandwiches Hamilton. He could keep twice as much of the surface of the bench warm.

    Sadly, all those guys got a lot of pt, I say sadly because they shouldn't have. Bench warmers don't ever play. For example, Dave Feitl, who backed up Hakeem in 87.
