    Grantland - The Music in Royce White's Head

    Actual interview on his drive back to Ames after his Timberwolves work out. Highlights his life from Mpls to the U and on to Ames. Needless to say it is good.

    On the road with NBA draft prospect Royce White - Grantland...

    No wonder Bill Simmons is enamored with Royce after reading that. (BTW he reiterated his love for the Celtics to take RW at the end of yesterday’s BS report podcast after the JackO segment)

    What an awesome article. Loved JP's quotes.

    I so bad wished we could have just one more year with Royce. The one we had went too fast.

    He has an idea for a $100 million movie about windmills.
    Great article! I got to this part and thought of CF and realized that White wasn't talking about windmills in the literal sense, but in the sense of using Jeremy Lamb's failures to make $100 million.

    LaBill is the best there is at covering the NBA. He has his own style but he nails it, whatever "it" of the day is regarding the NBA. (realize this particular story wasn't his)

    Re: Grantland - The Music in Royce White's Head

    I mean this in the best way possible....has there ever been a mid to late first round projected pick that has gotten the pub of Royce White?

    It really speaks well of him and what he has done to turn his life around. The fact that ISU continues to reap the benefits of giving him his second chance is just an added bonus.

    Royce is driving a Cadillac STS? a gift from the agent, you suppose?

    He can probably get a loan based on potential earnings.

    Im pretty sure his grandpa drives one, maybe its his? Not that it would matter, most nba hopefuls get cars right after they announce.

    Name one player in the draft more interesting than Royce. There might be better players, but no one else lends themselves to these types of stories.

    What a great piece. We were lucky to have Royce for a year as we did, and selfishly I wish he'd stayed for one more. Truly one of the more unique and thoughtful college athletes I can recall.

    Royce truly is wise beyond his years. What a mature young man. Very thankful that he is a part of Cyclone Nation.

    Great article.

    Couldn't help but smile a little bit at his description of anxiety effects, "You could sweat, really cold sweat or really hot sweat."

    Ladies and gentlemen, let's let that close the book on Royce White and sweat. He knows more than most on the subject.


    TRUE AND VALIANT
