    All the love for Chuck Hayes the past 72 hours got me to thinking. Where does he rank among your favorite Rockets role players of all time?

    My vote goes to Robert "Big Shot Rob" Horry, with Chuck Hayes third behind Battier. I didnt follow the Rockets til 4th grade (1986) so please forgive me if some of the "Old School" players are left off. Please vote "other".

    Then Horry. Chuck's tied with Deke for third, I guess, but his play has made him surpass Shane.

    Sam...I...Am

    He transcends "favorite roleplayer" and is in the conversation for favorite all-time Rockets, regardless of role or status.

    Love Chuck but Elie, Horry and OT still brings back some incredible memories.

    Does Cat Mobley count as a role player? He was never the star of his teams, so I would think so.

    Sam
    Horry
    Elie
    Cat

    Almost all of these guys were starters and featured players. Nobody can come close to Elie. The bottom line is winning and Mario won a ton of huge games for the Rockets. Without him, the name Clutchfans wouldn't exist. He was money in close games. No way do the Rockets win two rings without the Junkyard Dog off the bench.

    Agreed. But I can take out elie and insert "horry" and verbatim the statement would still be valid.

    Chuck Hayes cannot compare to the holy trinity of Pete Chilcutt, Eldridge Recasner, and Othella Harrington. Gods among men.

    Elie was a starter once Maxwell went rogue and horry was moved to 4.

    lol, there is no ways Chuck Hayes should win this poll.

    Yes he is a good role-player. But he hasn't had a major role on a playoff team or done anything compared to some of the other players on that list.

    You can't compare role-players who helped win rings to one who hasn't even made an impact in the playoffs yet.
