    When's the cutoff for playoff rosters? Mad Max is available.

    Oh man, Clutch, that was fantastic! I think you asked some of the best questions. You're a natural interviewer. And Max? Like you said, he didn't disappoint. The stuff many of us have been saying here for years, that we matched up so well against the Bulls, that they struggled mightily against us, that we would have beaten them anyway had Jordan not been screwing around playing baseball, and that we wanted to test ourselves against him and his Bulls, well hearing Max say the same thing was golden. That was truly one of the great moments here at ClutchFans, in my humble opinion. Kudos!

    You can keep your Celtics, Lakers, Knicks and Bulls. I was born to be a Rockets fan and will ride or die with them.

    We need another player like Max. Like Beverly but with the physical tools cover any wing.

    I saw Dan Marjele in a Gallery elevator back in the day and I instantly thought of Maxwell: how Madmax would just lock the hell out of Marjele on d. Lol.

    That's a great lesson for the young ones who may be unaware of Hakeem's legendary status. When Hakeem was at his peak, he was the best player in the league and in the entire world, even in the presence of Michael Jordan. This is proof of that. Rep given.

    Somehow Clutch needs to add an extra star for this thread, and never do it again.

    Someone get Max a uni, dude looks like he could still go. He needs to mentor our young guys to play with his passion.

    Great pic together! For those that were not alive or too little, Google Dexter and Maxwell to get some context.

    Yeah, that pic of Vernon and Drexler is actually pretty meaningful when you think about the context and the history.

    Is Horry in the background ? Also I think that's Pete Chilcutt , seeing the back of the head, it seems he never changed his cut since the 90's.

    If there ever was a man that needed a 30 for 30 its Max. I'd contribute to a kickstarter fund to see that happen
