    Maxwell was by far the more real Houstonian
    He was seen everywhere with Houstonians and being part of the Houston life

    The real question is who wins in a battle on the court between Maxwell and Artest.

    Jordan figured a way to beat Travis best and pacers in 98.

    You watch Travis best get up and down, and you can see Travis best was faster than Avery Johnson and Vernon Maxwell.

    In game 6, Jordan looked like a bull rider when he tried to foul Travis best with less than a minute after Travis best already took Steve Kerr to bucket.

    It would never get settled. Both would get double tech'd and sent to the locker room before the end of the first quarter.

    All time All Defense team for Rockets?
    Olajuwon, Artest, Maxwell, Mutombo, and Paul?

    I love Maxwell. One of the best Twitter accounts IMO

    But I have to give it this to Yao.

    It is unfortunate that Yao played so much (with China forcing him to continue to play year round) but he gave everything to the Rockets:


    Even though I love Mad Max, compare that to this, in the middle of the playoffs:

    Rodman would knock Maxwell teeth out with elbow to take him out of a series!

    Horace Grant and the Chicago forwards were tough to deal with!

    Rodman might have done a failed kirate movie so watch out.

    Maxwell is big time yet rodman might have a black belt from van damm!!!!

    The Last Stand was pretty bad, Cyclops and Professor x got dusted and Wolverine ended up saving the day

    Dude, do you realize this guy is just replying nonstop with gibberish trolling?
    I don't think he can tell the difference between Popeyes and KFC, nevermind 90s basketball

    Remember there was some dude who kept trolling the site with this blue print

    Replace 'Starter' with 'G Leaguer'
    Something like start Thabeet and Machado etc

    Clutch got tired of this G-league troll and he disappeared
