Vernon Maxwell gets little credit for securing Hakeem's legacy
 

 
It's actually the exact opposite, he gets pigeon holed into the " Hakeem won without any all stars" category by most people it seems

Believe it or not, the Rockets weren't a fixture in deep playoff runs before the 94 season... As a whole they was considered underachievers, and the team was almost blown up.... Maxwell brought them some toughness and confidence, to eventually help make a deep run...

In 94, Houston was down 2-0 to the Suns, and game 3 was in PHX... Most people considered the series over... Maxwell scored 31 points in the 2nd half of the game, saving the season for the Rockets, and what would be Hakeem's first title..

Hakeem had the right mix of role players around him and things came together those two years. Maxwell brought that toughness and grit that isnt appreciated outside of Houston.

Definitely a real one.
We know he loves the utah jazz

Maxwell was a great overall piece to the puzzle. Tough defender and could help score too.

With Cassell 2nd season taking off and getting a little more spotlight during the second chip and the addition of Drexler to the roster I think that took away from the story of Maxwell.

Maxwell was an integral part of that first championship and felt he solidified his role as part of the core nucleus of the team. Only thing is the Rockets didn't feel that way and traded Otis Thorpe for Clyde while Max was suspended for punch that fan during their 2nd championship year.

That was the beginning of the end for Maxwell...... and well.... everyone on that team except for Robert Horry.

Max my dude havenít seen him in about a year though. Bruh used to come to my shop for like 5 years but I havenít seen him since we came back from quarantine. He may be spending his time in Atlanta now though his son a soph at GTech. Young Tristan can go a lil bit
