@  RollingWave : (28 May 2013 - 12:51 AM) Most of the time top 10 guys should be pretty evident by year 2 or 3, but there is always a Steve Nash / Tony Parker type....
@  huitlacoche : (27 May 2013 - 02:18 PM) I agree that Kawhi will never be a top 10 player.  His handles aren't good enough.  Top 10 at his position, yes probably.  But not top 10 player.
@  timetodienow... : (27 May 2013 - 04:04 AM) We'll see. I think he has all the requisite athleticism and if TP can learn to shoot like that, he can too. He is still learning. Don't forget he's already a superstar calibre defender.
@  2016Champions : (27 May 2013 - 03:54 AM) Kawhi will never be a top 10 player.
@  timetodienow... : (26 May 2013 - 11:44 PM) The Spurs improve their players tremendously. And with Ginobili and Duncan retiring soon, he and Danny Green will be the No.2 and No.3 option for San Antonio.
@  timetodienow... : (26 May 2013 - 11:36 PM) Why not? He's already money from 3. He's added a little it extra and he's only getting better. I guess I'm the only one who remembers how RAW Tony Parker was when he came into the league. Hell, even Bonner has a midrange game now.
@  Ostrow : (26 May 2013 - 08:52 PM) A top 10 player? No chance. Top 10 defender, yes (possible he's already there).
@  timetodienow... : (26 May 2013 - 07:28 PM) Danny Green will also continue to get better.
@  timetodienow... : (26 May 2013 - 07:28 PM) I truly believe Kawhi Leonard will be a top 10 player in 3 years. The rate at which he has been able to progress is stunning. I watched him struggle against Jimmer and now look at him.
@  BenQueens : (26 May 2013 - 05:54 AM) Yeah, so hard to imagine the WC w/o Duncan/Parker/Manu.
@  miketheodio : (26 May 2013 - 05:35 AM) love the spurs. although i do wonder what they are going to do after 2/3 years once the big 3 are near done.
@  RollingWave : (26 May 2013 - 04:37 AM) looks like the Spurs are heading back to the finals...  I think it's safe to say that in the context of 15 years they've been the most dominant team in the league by a considerable margin
@  BenQueens : (23 May 2013 - 04:03 AM) Well, that finish was worth staying up for. G'night!
@  2016Champions : (23 May 2013 - 04:00 AM) Melo: "Why couldn't Vogel sub Hibbert out game 6?"
@  BenQueens : (23 May 2013 - 03:54 AM) The overhead shot of that play is amazing. He read where George was going perfectly.
@  2016Champions : (23 May 2013 - 03:53 AM) Frank Vogel is going to answer for his decision to bench Hibbert during this moments
@  RollingWave : (23 May 2013 - 03:53 AM) Lebron James should be playing at a higher league
@  2016Champions : (23 May 2013 - 03:52 AM) He just makes it look so easy.
@  BenQueens : (23 May 2013 - 03:51 AM) Hibbert shaking his head right there- that's brutal.
@  2016Champions : (23 May 2013 - 03:50 AM) Are you serious Lebron?!!! wow!!

If I was to make an educated guess, I would guess that Adam Silver and David Stern and the Rockets organization, some other owners in the league,GMs, want me gone. And why do they want me gone? Because business is about convenience, not about doing what's necessary. It's about cutting overhead... And a lot of times, what's best for us as human beings doesn't meet that criteria for business people.

I'm as ignorant as anyone else on the matter of anxiety disorder and whatever other mental illnesses he may have, but I have to agree with the article that there must be better ways for Royce to handle the whole situation. For starters he can stop playing like trash in the D-League, get recognized and become somebody, and maybe after he becomes somebody in the NBA he might actually have a voice and the power to make a difference. Right now all he's doing is burning bridges isolating himself from everyone, he's taking the fact he made the NBA for granted, and if he keeps all this up he won't be in the NBA for very long. I wish him all the best, and hopefully the next talent with mental illnesses to make the NBA learns from all these mistakes.

    It seems like everytime the Rockets try to accommodate him in any way, White then moves the goal posts farther and if the Rockets don't agree with his new terms they are out to get him. While I'm sure he does have some of the problems, the more and more he talks, it seems he is just another spoiled brat of the AAU generation. He has been pampered for so long, that if he doesn't get his way, he throws a hissyfit and starts name calling. While he has the skills to be an very solid NBA player, until he matures and realizes the Rockets want him to succeed (even if it is only for their benefit), he will never put on a Rockets jersey.

      ^No need.  I should clarify, with regard to my note pinned at the top of the forum, I only meant to put items in existing threads if the existing threads were still active.  No need to resurrect old ones and unnecessarily burden yourselves.  The note was only to keep things clean as a mod had informed me that one of the new members had been creating a new thread every single time he had a random thought, even during games.

      2016champion:

      we have found common ground. I totally agree with you on royce. at this point royce just needs to shutup and play basketball. I think royce has already burned every bridge to the nba available. every team in the league has been watching this situation right from the beginning. royce's contract is a team option after next season. he will surely find his self out of the league after that and based on the stink he has created this time around it's unlikely we are any other team will add him to their roster. I wish the rockets would just out and out release him pay him and tell him to stay as far away from us as possible. I gave up long time ago on hoping he would pan out. at this point I wouldn't trust him even if he did pan out

        Just another disappointment from Royce.  Does anyone know the process the Rockets need to go through to get that make up pick Alexander hinted at?

          If the Rockets doctor told him to go back to Houston then this is a non-story.

          so freaking sick of this guy.  for awhile i had hoped for his sake, and the rockets, that they could work things out.  now i actually hope he never plays.  just want him gone and the drama over with.

            For a guy with so much talent, hes going to wind up wasting it. 

             

            Also, I don't understand how this guy has a doctor telling him he should take time off and go home, but doesn't have an agent or PR guy telling him to get the hell away from social media.  He is once again ranting and raving.

             

            I honestly don't care if we get a pick back for him or not, I think getting nothing back will help us move on and forget about this mess altogether.

            He said the "team doctor" told him to go home. If that's true, the Rockets can't do anything like cut him and not pay him.


            Why so Serious? :D

              He's so bad at articulating what he's trying to say. It's amazingly frustrating. This may simply be, as noted, that the team doctor thinks what's best for him and the team is for him to just come back and start working out and getting ready for summer. (and that seems very likely) I mean, if he'd stayed with the Vipers all season and never played on the Rockets nobody would have been shocked. So it's not like a huge scoop that he's not going to be with the team. But all he does is say this dramatic sounding stuff and tweet things about how he doesn't care about basketball or whatever and he alienates everyone.

               

              I seriously think that if he had like... a PR staff? We'd all like him and this would be fine.
