    We won a championship with Drexler and we wouldn't have won it with Thorpe. If that's true, what is your preference:

    A) Drexler never came to Houston and we didn't win the 2nd championship and he's not our color comentator

    or

    B) Tracy Murray stays with the Blazers, Drexler retires in Portland and some underserving team is the 1994-1995 champion of the NBA

    C) I love the newest players! History be chastised!

    No commentating on this planet is bad enough to (hypothetically) nullify a championship.

    I follow a team for the color commentating, not the championships.

    I vote for

    1) Win championship with Drexler -- BUT --
    2) Calvin never gets fired and is still the color commentator

    Drexler is stinking hilarious. Sometimes the funniest people are the ones not trying to be. I can't wait to hear him again! Lol

    I don't mind Drexlee at all. He's a consummate professional.

    Drexler's commentary is bad and sometimes unintentionally offensive, but that is a price I'll glady play for a championship.

    Seriously though can we please get a better color commentator.

    Calvin was the best commentator and should replace Drexler or become the new shooting coach.

    Drexler is my favorite NBA player of all time. Nothing he says or does after his playing career can take away what he left on the court. He's an all-time great.

    Probably just as fair to say we won a championship with Thorpe that we wouldn't have won with Drexler.

    Hakeem still wins 1995 with Thorpe and Maxwell. Who was going to stop him?

    OK

    I agree. Thorpe was huge in our season. There was no need to get Drexler.
