    Royce White's strength

    This is via the CycloneMBB Twitter:


    Cyclone newcomer Royce White had one of the strongest bench press test outs in mbb history. White benched 185 pounds 22 times. The next closest Cyclone had 14 reps.

    Re: Royce White's strength

    Honestly that's impressive, especially for somebody with such long arms.

    Shocking? Our returning players are Garret, SC, JVB.... not exactly the most muscle bound of basketball players. The rest are freshman and newcomers who probably haven't been on hardcore weight training programs.

    Wonder who had 14? Ejim? Godfrey?

    I kind of read it as the next closest ever was 14 reps, not next closest on the current roster, which would be shocking. After I read it again, I guess it could be interpreted both ways.

    Re: Royce White's strength

    Gotta be next closest on the team.

    Heck...I can do 185 for 14 reps.

    Re: Royce White's strength

    Here are the numbers from last year's NBA combine, making Royce's 22 even more impressive:

    NBA Draft Combine: Athleticism Test Results | NBADraft.net

    Some notables:

    Cole Aldrich- 10

    Craig Brackens- 6

    Trevor Booker/ Derrick Character - 22

    Luke Harangody- 23 (this is the most impressive one to me).

    23 was the highest total from last year's draft combine, with the average being 11.37. That makes Royce's total pretty damn impressive.

    Nah, Chris said Royce had "one of the best" ever, meaning there were others who had beat him before. If the next best ever was 14, White would have by far the best ever.

    Bet Fizer and Kantrail Horton were ahead of him. Nice to have a strong big man inside again!

    Yeah, you're probably right. I have no concept of how difficult benching 185 pounds is. All I know is that I probably couldn't even do 1.

    Re: Royce White's strength

    If my memory is correct, RW benched 185 either 21 or 22 more times than Jiri Hubalek :)

    I remember quite clearly that, in those years, Eustachy used to love mentioning that Stevie Johnson blew everyone else on the team out of the water in bench press.

    Re: Royce White's strength

    Sounds like a good story for CW to work on! Find out who had the 14 and what were the other all-time bests bench presses...

    Re: Royce White's strength

    This seems good, but the strongest player that I can remember was Curtis Stinson. I thought he could rep 225 about 10 times. I remember hearing that he was stronger than Homan. A primary reason why he was the best rebounding guard that I can remember.
