    Agree. His year here was like Howard on the Lakers -- he didn't fit in right. He wasn't worth his contract. So, yeah I hated his on-court game in that one year. He just managed to make a bad situation even worse by trying to blame his shortcomings on other people and screw the team over to maximize his own benefit. Pippen is easily the most despised.

    But, you should stop posting these BR articles, or at least mark it appopriately (as YCN) in the thread title.

    2. I never said no one else did drugs. In fact, I know they did. Michael Cooper, James Worthy....yeppers. And I bet Another Brother could verify that one for you.

    But they weren't Rockets and they didn't caught and kicked out of the league over it. Lloyd did. And it cost us big time.

    Any true Rocket fan should have nothing but love for Ralph Sampson ... sure his career being cut short was a disappointment but this dude should never again be allowed to write about the Rockets .

    I met Ralph a few times back in the day. He was a quiet guy and very polite.

    I have nothing but good to say about him. He moved over to power forward to let Dream take over in the post. Ralph was a 7-4 guy with ball handling skills. Ralph didn't give us any reason to hate him. He was no Hakeem but he was pretty good when he was here.

    I remember watching the game against the Nuggets when he hurt his knee. He never was the same after that.

    Somehow feels that there should be more poll options:

    writer is a troll?
    writer is clueless?
    writer sucks?

    Well he could of thrown a temper tantrun, refuse to play with his Rocket team mates during the playoffs, get booted from the team, sit at home collect your checks while your team was grinding it out.....IN THE PLAYOFFS, then get tossed out of Houston for a bag of doritos.

    Yet somehow you dont label maxwell for the whining, crying b**** of a quitter that he was.

    oh it's you again.

    so what's your take? maxwell vs pippen
    who's the more despised Rocket?

    say Pippen and Max get introduced at Toyota Center during half time of game. Who do you think will get the boos?


    yeah you know it, you're just on this thread because of me.

    Posting this dude's incoherent rants leads to nothing good. Just ignore the trolls, even the ones on Yahoo.

    Just to finish. I dont despise Pippen. One and done move your ass out. What Maxwell consistently did was douce baggery at its finest. Not only was he a ****ty team mate for quitting, he was a ****ty person in life. Need we discuss what he did to a certain lady? Not a good representative of the Rockets at all.

    If Ralph is the most hated, then we have been doing something right. Sounds more like a Celtics fan wrote this schlock though.

    All Rockets fans know it's Pippen, unless you counted his leaving as an annulment.
