@  JY86er : (19 April 2015 - 05:34 AM) Was that a hack on Rondo after Dallas hacked Smith and did they pull Rondo after that foul?
@  cointurtlemoose : (19 April 2015 - 05:25 AM) Also, Dwight. I like that guy. He's real good at basketball.
@  cointurtlemoose : (19 April 2015 - 05:24 AM) We did a good job of going at Dirk on offense, need to keep that up
@  Mario Peña : (19 April 2015 - 04:56 AM) Woot woot!
@  08huangj : (19 April 2015 - 04:24 AM) His past three games: 16.7 mins, 8.7 pts, 5.7 rebs, and 1.7 blocks.
@  08huangj : (19 April 2015 - 04:23 AM) Wow. Capela has HUGE potential.
@  Cooper : (19 April 2015 - 04:21 AM) We dominated when he was on the floor.Capella did as much as you could expect probably more; but TC dominated the boards
@  08huangj : (19 April 2015 - 04:17 AM) Howard was absolutely amazing. Assuming that he played 34 minutes(double the amount he played/hate foul trouble), He would've got 22, 10, and 10 blocks. Triple Double.
@  jorgeaam : (19 April 2015 - 04:12 AM) 1-0!
@  jorgeaam : (19 April 2015 - 03:55 AM) Hahahaha, who called the Hack-a-Rondo for Hack-a-Smith earlier?
@  jorgeaam : (19 April 2015 - 03:55 AM) Oh no, Hack a Smith
@  08huangj : (19 April 2015 - 03:33 AM) Josh is shooting way too much
@  RudyT1995 : (19 April 2015 - 03:30 AM) I don't know whether to cringe or laugh at every Josh Smith jumper
@  jorgeaam : (19 April 2015 - 03:28 AM) I'm amazed by Capela's hustle, he runs the floor every single time
@  jorgeaam : (19 April 2015 - 03:12 AM) Just as I sent that, he airballed a corner 3 <_<
@  jorgeaam : (19 April 2015 - 03:11 AM) Terry doesn't miss
@  Cooper : (19 April 2015 - 03:08 AM) Yeah at least Terry is shooting well to make up for it. Also doesn't help that Howard had to sit so much with 3fouls
@  jorgeaam : (19 April 2015 - 03:07 AM) Yeah, Rondo always seems to be and elite player when he's on national TV
@  Sir Thursday : (19 April 2015 - 02:50 AM) Uh-oh, looks like Playoff Rondo is actually a thing (although it helps to be being guarded by Jason Terry).
@  08huangj : (19 April 2015 - 02:36 AM) Now it's tied

I was worried from the start he might try to hold this team hostage with his anxiety disorder. He says its a player = commodity driven league, sure I'll give him that, but he hasn't demonstrated he's a commodity, only a headache so far... Rockets FO hasn't handled this the best way possible, but Royce played his cards quite poorly.

Woj put it best when he said this has become an embarrassing spectacle.

White didn't realize how little leverage he has. That he seriously thought he could hold him hostage over playing time is....unbelievable.

Sad, because I, along with most, were on his side at the beginning when this first started before he began making a mockery of himself.

I was too. Did you read the deal about the globetrotters? That in itself should wake his butt up. I can see us severing ties and him getting over it and landing with another team. He's got the problems of a cousins with the attitude of a griffin/marbury. You remember the vasoline.

What was the ordeal about him saying that he shouldn't have brought it up in the first place? I thought that's what this whole charade is about.

white is out of bounds with the comments on twitter. I didn't like this draft pick from the beginning, but later came around when I saw this guys talent. white is using his condition to try and gain favorable treatment within the team. a nba player is 2 equally important but seperate parts (mental and physical). this guy seems to have the physical down, but unable to handle the mental. we do not have time to hold his hand. the rockets have gone over and above the call of duty trying to help this guy and yet he continues to want more. at some point you have to draw the line in the sand and say look royce it's time to man up. if his condition is as bad as he is trying to make it sound then maybe the nba is not for him. if he can't handle the mental part of the game then cut ties with him. I hate to start beating the I hate mc hale drum again. but this was his desired pick. I say we cut ties with both.

I agree with what everyone has said. The rants on Twitter are completely out of line. The issues Royce has should have been talked about; prior to the draft, or; when he and the Rockets discussed his travelling plan. Even if the Rockets gave into his "demands" at this time, how long until he has more? This is an exact example of giving a man an inch and him taking a mile.
