Vernon Maxwell was a crucial part of the 1990s Houston Rockets team.
Maxwell was the guard of one of the best teams of the 90s decade. The Rockets won two titles in 1994 and 1995.
Vernon Maxwell appeared on ‘No Chill with Gilbert Arenas’ on Fubo’s Network.
During his interview with Fubo, Maxwell told the story of an incident that happened in the locker room of the Houston Rockets.
The incident with Olajuwon
Maxwell arrived in the locker room at halftime, complaining about not getting the ball.
“I’m like, ‘This some bulls-t, y’all mother-fkers. Give up that god damn rock. Pass that bitch,'” he said.
However, Olajuwon slapped Maxwell so hard, that the guard fell off his chair.
“That mother-fker hit me so hard, man, knocked me out of the chair,” Maxwell commented.
Instead of calming down, Maxwell grabbed the chair and threw it to Olajuwon, a seven-foot Hall of Famer.
The chair broke a pane of glass, and Maxwell threatened Olajuwon to pick up a glass and stab him.
Maxwell wanted to “chase Dream and stab the s-t out of him.”
Nevertheless, there was a police brigade that heard the glass and the loud incident, and arrived at the scene.
“Maxwell and Olajuwon went on to win back-to-back titles with the Rockets in 1994 and 1995, though he famously had a messy exit from the team after the 1995 season when the team traded for Clyde Drexler, effectively zapping his minutes,” the New York Post reported.
