    He would not put up with that **** Westbrook pulled on Brewer..Beverley is a fraud and the rest of the team was not even close to do anything about it. Also not standing up for Dwight anyone?

    Lol...fans would be demanding Maxwell be cut or traded today...38%fg, 29% from 3 and 2.5 to's ignoring all the great things he truly brought for us. But a player like Maxwell wouldn't work on this team with no leader. He'd be out of control.

    Isn't it ironic that you picked somebody who was cut by team because he quit on them?

    Not really, when he had the support of the organisation and even when he got paid peanuts, he still worked the hardest of them all. He didn't get cut ;)

    Mad Max was the bomb....before bombs were bombs. He took it Jordan every time. Jordan got his points; but had to work harder for them.

    So what happens if he doesn't get the support again? Don't get me wrong, I love max, but not for the reasons you want him back.

    You mean the same Max who got pissy when Rudy T barely played him in game 1 versus Utah (even though Max claimed he had a hammy issue), then brought him in at the end and Max pissed the potential winner at the buzzer? That Max got sent home and was never heard from again. I mean it literally ended his rockets career.

    I think you are forgetting he had lots of turd moments. Like running into the stands in Portland to punch a fan. He would zone out on this current squad.

    People miss the point and if you want to know about his quiting, watch the documentary from last year...

    What's the point?

    You want a Mad Max type to clock Westbrook? He'd get suspended for like 20 games and hurt his team.

    how exactly should the rockets have retaliated?

    Hip Hop and the NBA mirror each other

    when the NBA of the 90s had tough minded gritty players like Maxwell, the top artists were Tupac and Biggie, Naughty by Nature, Nas, Snoop and Dre

    now we have Drake

    So with that logic, then the Westbrook play was a tough minded gritty 90s style play that resulted in no blood. Play on.

    Maxwell, Ron Artest, those dudes don't exist now

    Tupac isn't here anymore but his music will live forever

    like Clutch City will live forever

    that's not logic

    that's just real

    This issue is overblown and reeks of just another way to pile on the Rockets.

    Westbrook didn't intentionally go out of his way to clobber Brewer, just get over it.

    What the hell are you babbling about? Who cares about Tupac? How does he relate to Mad Max or the Westbrook play? Tupac is deader than dead. Dead people have no idea what's been going on with their estate or legacy.

    The goal of every person should be to not get shot dead at age 25. That's logical and real.

    Maxwell would have said something to Westbrook just like Tupac would have said something

    who cares about Tupac? people who care about real hip hop

    Again. Dead at 25 due to gunshot wounds. Probably from "saying something" to someone at some point.

    I think today's NBA players are smarter and will live a longer, richer life and probably won't die by "saying something" to the wrong person.

    Can you name a Drake song that actually talks about something besides himself??

    Tupac sang about making the world a better place
