    It's everything we already know, but it's pretty sweet nonetheless.

    Re: Awesome ABC5 Royce White Piece

    That was the first interview of him I'd seen. He seems like a very articulate, thoughtful individual. That's great to see. It sounds like he has really figured things out and whatever problems he had a Minnesota will be behind him.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    Wow, very nice. I have been very impressed with Royce to date: he seems very mature for his age and intelligent too.

    Re: Awesome ABC5 Royce White Piece

    Very nice! I had no idea about the piano thing and think it's awesome he's majoring in music. I can personally attest to "finding a voice through music" and playing an instrument passionately flowing out into regular day life and everything you do. Very awesome..his music sounded pretty good too, especially for someone who's only been playing the instrument for 1.5 years.

    Maybe his basketball career will end up like Wayman Tisdale's, another big man musician (RIP)

    Re: Awesome ABC5 Royce White Piece

    Thanks for posting. I had a chance to speak to Royce last year during the season. He talked more about his music than he did about basketball. He is a well spoken young man.

    Wow. He's a lot more together than I was at that age. BTW, ISU's music program is actually pretty good. Great story.

    First time I had watched an interview with him too. Seems very well spoken and I hope that he takes full advantage of this second chance.

    Awesome post. If this kid can speak that well in front of the camera, he may find himself in broadcasting at some point in his life if the music thing weren't to work out for him.

    Love how articulate he is and a definite sense of his intelligence from the interview. Hopefully, that intelligence will transfer onto the court.

    Thanks for posting!
