    We've all agreed that TMAC is, now sound off about the Franchise!

    No on both TMac and Steve - good players who ultimately did not earn Legend status.

    Rockets legends, IMO.

    Dream
    Rudy T
    Calvin M
    Elvin H
    Moses M
    Yao M

    The rest were just good players like:

    Drexler
    Barkley
    Franchise
    Tmac
    OT

    DD

    I never agreed that TMAC is a Rockets legend. I don't think Stevie is a legend either. Should we retire his number? I don't think so.

    Fixed. You can disagree on Sampson, but he DID technically get us to the Finals. Can't forget the shot against the Lakers that made Gene and Jim (and every Rockets fan pretty much) jizz themselves :grin:

    Of course he is. He's in Lil Flip's Game Over, 'A Francise like a Houston Rocket' and you can add Kelvin Cato to that list as well because he is in Z-Ro's Mo City Don song too.

    The people who thought Tmac is a Rocket Legend, also believes Tmac helped win the Rockets a few championships and won himself a few MVPs......

    when they were playing NBA2K Live and they had INJURY and QUITTING options turned off, and when they purposely deleted LeBron, Duncan, Kobe, off the game

    I guess we should give Scottie legend status too.
