    Dude , the fact that you didn't add Larry Smith - AKA Mister Mean to the list disqualifies it.

    Artest was so good that season. He would have definitely come back the next season if Yao was healthy.

    Gerald Green was more of a Rockets enforcer than these dudes.

    My vote goes to Calvin Murphy. Nobody threw hands like him and he had the added psychological advantage of the fear he caused against bigs. Nobody wanted to get beat up on TV by a midget and they all knew he could do it.

    Dream didn't really need anyone to help 'enforce' , he was feared back in his early days.
    don't let the nice guy Dream in the interviews fool you, he was going to destroy people on the court

    What's weird about the newbs is that they think Rockets fans like Pippen and that he played well for us.
    He was the most hated player in Rockets history by Rockets fans, there's no one remotely close.

    Ron Artest and Otis Thorpe could have been considered. Even kind and sweet Dikembe Mutombo - when he did enforce, everybody understood.

    Dream for sure. People forget how mean he was early in his career. He would scrap. Not a bunch of talk.
