    That was fantastic. I understand the scenario a little bit better now, and that's pretty impressive for a short interview.

    Good stuff, Chris! I wasn't a big fan of Royce's behavior last year, but he comes off as pretty humble and consistent here.

    Love rw on the court, but the mental health thing is turning into a big crutch......it's getting old.

    Get in the court an be successful then make the disease an issue, right now i think he is hurting the cause for future players.

    I don't care what anyone says, that is one intelligent guy right there.

    I'm not saying I agree completely with how he's handled all this, but he is one smart dude, there's no denying that.

    this. Agree or disagree with how he's gone about his business, but you can't deny that he gives amazing interviews. He's a natural behind the mic.

    another reason why he needs to get off twitter. He gets his message across much better speaking compared to sending out 140 character #bewell tweets

    Completely agree. Twitter has been a disaster for him.

    I thought the same thing. I just want to see the guy hit the court.

    Yeah, kill the twitter and get in front of a camera instead. I think he could say the same thing on both venues and be perceived completely different based on his personality and speaking ability. I still really hope he can hit the court and prove himself in the NBA

    He's a solid interview, no doubt. And, frankly, I was surprised that he had 32. I would have guessed closer to 20. You could tell he was rusty and his upper body lacked the definition he had at ISU. I hope things work out in Philly for him. It's a tough town, but one that loves their athletes and will back him if he comes out and represents.

    i think Philly will be good for him. They will bus to a lot of eastern conference opponents most likely. (NYC, Brooklyn, DC and possibly even Boston) i know he says thats not the major issue, but it cant hurt.

    Cuts down the # of flights, so it helps.
    He was pretty clear that 100 flights per year isn't possible for him.

    The NBA discussions about the bus sound very interesting. Those are actual concerns to complicate the issue.

    Same for me. Especially part about a bus being a possible infringement.

    He makes a good point about the drugs and alochol problems that can develop.

    After the media left and people were done getting autographs I noticed a couple of boys that keep coming up to RW and messing with him. Then I noticed it was hoiberg's family that was there. Only one missing was Fred.
