    Just make the hand check legal and zone defense illegal again. It’s the only things that kept the mad bomber from going all broken bottle.

    Highlights from a fun game. I forgot how explosive Maxwell could be (basketball-wise):

    God Olajuwon and Jordan were amazing. I absolutely hate Michael Jordan, but Maxwell was never afraid of him. You need a guy like that. He played Jordan with a chip on his shoulder every single time.

    That move by Hakeem on Cartwright at the 2:15 mark...lol

    Also watching Hakeem step out and guarding Jordan...Hakeem was incredible.

    yeh... a lil crazy is ok - as long as they have a firm allegiance (ie GGreen)... but crazy like KPJ or Max where it may come down to them blowing and telling the team to fo and walking out... thats the crazy i can do without....

    Don't know about him throwing a weight at Olajuwon, but he did have a fight with Gary Payton in their lockerroom when he was a Sonic. If I recall, Payton picked up a chair and Maxwell picked up a dumbbell or some kind of free-weight. Horace Grant was supposedly hit and injured by a free weight while trying to separate them or something.

    Yeah... KPJ ain't got nothin' on Mad Max. :D

    Someone needs to edit that story into a song his voice is classic -- Max is like a country version of Charlie Murphy telling stories.

    I had no idea when Hakeem was playing and I was a little kid that I'd be watching his highlights 30+ years later.
