    Default Good idea to spend a 16th pick on this guy




    Tigerbrand coffee is a real treat, even tigers prefer it to real meat.

    It was always a risky pick, but I can't hate on them too much. They had 3 firsts this year and the guy has incredible talent. It was probably worth a risk. Much like Brandon Roy in Minnesota. They don't always work out, that's why they're risks.

    Good read. Hopefully this kid can get the help he needs to turn his life around, nevermind basketball.

    Ya for sure. It'd be nice to see him get to put his talent to use, but hopefully he at least gets himself right.

    I do agree with the premise that given the amount of money and time spent on specialists to help ensure athletes are playing at peak levels, it would make sense for teams to have a psychologist on staff.

    Its all over Twitter that the Rockets have suspended White. Failure to provide services required by his contract, or something along those lines.

    Sounds like he was effective, hopefully they had a bus waiting for him after the game.

    As an aside, I enjoy flying quite a bit.

    I was pulling for him at the start. He makes it very hard to keep doing that.

    From all I have read about/heard from Royce White, he seems like an intelligent, good guy. Unfortunately, he is dealing with health issues that should be put before anything else. For his own benefit, it may be best for him to look at a career change. The NBA life may not be feasible with the issues he has to deal with.
