Well deserved. Great guy. Once scored 20 points and 20 rebounds in a NBA game. The freaking Rockets cut Micheaux and opted for the atrocious, pathetic Granville Waiters. Unbelievable.

On a similar note, after the Rockets won their first NBA championship, the j erk holes cut Carl Herrera from the team just a couple of days afterward, and I think prior to all the public celebrations. First Class.

It was the 2nd championship, but you’re correct, otherwise. Les Alexander wasn’t exactly the most sympathetic to human plights like he was for animals. Remember, he also traded Horry and Cassell just a few years later to bring in Barkley…a trade that didn’t work considering what those two went on and did in their careers.

Glad Fertita is in charge now.
