    ok that's your opinion, i don't really know if anyone else would agree with you.

    The guy who created this place, Clutch, labeled him "Scottie Quitten".

    He has labeled Vernon Maxwell... Vernon Maxwell.

    But I don't think it is about Maxwell or Pippen or even the real topic, which is the completely wrong assumption of Ralph Sampson.

    I know why you're on this thread.

    Say my name.

    I thought we already forbid posting trashy contributor-based articles like this one. His stuff has already contaminated CF before with his fanboy ode to Harden being better than Kobe.

    Let's agree to not litter CF with this crap anyMOOR, ok?

    Click on the link to his name at the beginning of the article and you'll see him and all the "articles" he's contributed. There's a lot of Rockets love in his musings, I will say that.

    You can't say you love the Rockets and then say the Rockets won championships when MJ was playing baseball.

    Plus I clicked on his bio, no way he was old enough to understand the Rocket fans in the 80s.

    Pippen will forever be the worst Rocket of all time. I would probably boo him if I saw him in the Galleria. Scottie Quitten is a perfect nickname.

    Mad Max had a killer three in game 7 against the Knicks. That, alone, precludes him from this list.

    But seriously, did this guy assume the Houston and Boston were the same city or something? Hating Ralph like that as a fanbase? come on son.

    "Ralph Sampson's Injury-Riddled Career Makes Him the Most Despised Houston Rocket Ever"

    That's just about the dumbest thing I've ever read on this forum. Totally stupid.

    At least Maxwell had some good times to soften the blow of his nasty exit. Pippen was all bad memories.

    I don't know a single person who "despises" Ralph.

    Seriously?? I've never heard A WORD of criticism directed to him. By Rockets fans or otherwise, but most importantly, I've never heard a single Rockets fan call Olajuwon anything but the greatest. He'd already lost me by then, especially with the "crooked redemption" crap. Oh, and by the way, since I saw tinman's post a bit later, the university the guy proudly states as his alma matter isn't much to be write home about, either. Just sayin'.
