    If Hakeem was Chinese
    Les would never trade him
    Not matter how much money he wanted at the end of his career

    Can’t believe McGrady didn’t get a vote from Tillman. His performance in the 2nd Round of the playoffs for us—oh wait....

    I bet you'd put Nolan Ryan in the Astros Rushmore over Roy O too.

    Taking a mediocre Rockets team to the finals in 80 puts Noses ahead of Yao

    I like Mac, I'm one of the bigger TMac non-haters around here... wouldn't put him on a Rockets Mt Rushmore. Unless that Rushmore went like 15 deep.

    Tmac was a great talent that would have a great moment or 2 and think..."oh I did something cool...I can just now chill and blame my team if we fail" That's what it looked like when he played...he was easily satisfied by his few great moments. The dude was not a killer...not a greedy player (in the good sense), not a go for the throat guy. He had this great talent, but too many times let up and was okay with the outcome.

    He was good but unfortunately never had the talent. He's a top 20 Rocket though.

    Otis Thorpe needs to be on the list. Underappreciated!

    The Clippers went for 2b without an arena and you're gonna tell me the Rockets wouldn't go for the same regardless of Yao? Get outtakes here

    We got rid of Steve Francis and Cuttino for him
    And
    We didn’t do anything different in the playoffs
    Lots of hype though

    Elvin Hayes never made it out the 1st round with Rockets either :confused:. He was only a Houston Rocket 1 season in his prime when they moved from San Diego. Its adding in his U of H career into it. Even then, Clyde Drexler accomplished more using that criteria. I'd honestly leave Hayes off the Rushmore. Rudy T, Calvin, Yao, Drexler had more combined team + individual success.
